I can’t believe January is nearly over, but at the same time Christmas seems such a long time ago. January has been non-stop for me preparing for all the big events I have on this year.
One of the first jobs this year, was a photoshoot for next year’s calendar, as well as creating more images for the website and for my tour programme. I even got to dress up in my leathers and pose with my bike which was brilliant fun. Keep an eye on my website and Facebook page for a sneaky peak at some of the pics from this day.
I have also been spending some time in my own kitchen, having fun trying out different recipes for the tour. As well as some classics I want to showcase some brand new recipes. These recipes will be available in the tour programme, so those attending can take them home and try them out themselves.
Amongst all this baking and behind the scenes stuff I got to enjoy a glamorous night out last week at the National Television Awards. Despite being nominated for an award, sadly the GBBO team walked away empty handed, however, I had a seriously fun night out with my Bake Off family. I also got the opportunity to meet some brilliant people, including my hero Ricky Gervais. Check out my Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/paul.hollywood.718?fref=ts where I have an album of selfies I took on the night!
I also appeared on The Alan Titchmarsh Show this month. It was a really fun day and I got the opportunity to show him how to make my Sausage Plait from my Pies & Puds book.
February looks to be another busy month, with my second newsletter being sent out to all the lovely people who have signed up. The newsletter has news, interviews, lots of tips from me, as well an exclusive recipe that I have designed especially for the newsletter. The recipe this time is something nice to enjoy on Valentine’s Day! If you haven’t already signed up then please visit the home page to add your details, or click the box on my Facebook page.
Happy Baking Paul x
