The Boy Who Bakes
"So why baking? I grew up in a fairly traditional family and as a child my mum would often get the mixing bowl out and teach me how to bake. I still remember standing on a stool at Christmas being encouraged to help cut out the pastry for the mince pies as well as baking bread with my grandma – the smell of fresh bread still brings back some vivid memories! I was really given my passion very early on but it wasn’t until I turned 20 that I began to realise baking was what I wanted my life to be about."
His first book is out this month (pre-order it here!) and according to his site will be offering macaroon classes really soon! Might have to add it to my bakery tour - macaroon classes! Could be fun!!
I just downloaded the BBC's iPlayer app for my iPad and it's one of my favorite apps! I missed the start of The Great British Bake Off Season 2 and I was able to catch up with this app. It has a lot of the BBC's more popular shows! Check it out. If you don't have an iPad don't fret you can watch TGBBO on BBC 2 on Tuesday nights!!
