The Boy Who Bakes

The Boy Who Bakes is a website I came across while surfing the web for a recipes by the Barefoot Contessa. I didn't find exactly what I was looking for, but I did discover a wonderful website full of recipes.

Quotes from his site:
"Baking is my life – my obsession really – and now I’m very excited to be able to say that it’s my career!
After winning the BBC Two series The Great British Bake Off in 2010 my life has been a rollercoaster journey in food and I’ve been lucky enough to do some amazing things."

"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!!
