Cats & Cakes

Posted on: February 27th, 2014 by Harriet Low No Comments

I am still in full on tour prep mode at the mo which is exciting. But in between all the practice baking I got the chance to have a little bit of fun hanging with the team at 8 Out of 10 Cats on Channel 4. It was such a funny experience and I really enjoyed meeting all the comedians as well as fellow contestants Dawn O’Porter, Joe Wilkinson and Rob Beckett. For those who missed it you can check it out on 4OD.

As well as prepping for my tour, I am also planning an appearance at the Big Cake Show in Exeter at the end of the month. Check out my calendar page for more details of when I am appearing and a link to buy tickets.

I also managed to fit in a quick trip to Rome, where as well as checking out some fantastic bakeries and pizzerias I also spotted a calendar of hot priests! Check out my Facebook page to see the picture and to keep up to date with all my latest news. https://www.facebook.com/paul.hollywood.718

Now I am off to practice my pancake tossing ahead of Shrove Tuesday next week, one of my favourite days of the year. If you want a great pancake recipe then check out my Bake With Kids pages for a fail safe recipe to make with your kids.

Prepping for my tour

Posted on: February 12th, 2014 by Harriet Low No Comments

So my big news last week was the announcement of 29 new dates for my tour this November and December. I know lots of you have been asking why the tour isn’t coming near you, so I hope now that you will all get a chance to come and see me.

I have had a fab couple of weeks prepping for my tour. I am in charge of picking all the music that will be played during the tour, so it’s been a brilliant excuse to spend some time going through my albums. I really hope you like the tracks I have chosen. I am also going to share with you some personal photos from throughout the years. I had a good giggle at some of the ones from the early years. I wonder if you will think I have changed much! The plan for the show is to roughly follow the chronology of my life, and to demonstrate recipes from each of the different stages, starting with the first apple pie I made with my mum. So as well as going through my music and photo collections, I have been looking back at all the recipes I have cooked over the years. It’s been heaven just hanging out in the kitchen recreating memories in my oven. For those that come to the show, you there will be a programme available to buy that will contain all the recipes I demonstrate. So hopefully I will inspire some of you to go home and try some out yourself.
