I am really excited to finally reveal the cover to my new book, A Baker’s Life. This new book is really special to me as it gives me a chance to share with you the bakers, chefs and experiences that have inspired me over the years. Each chapter is filled with bakes that represent a different decade in my life, from learning the basics in my father’s bakery, to honing my pastry skills in some of the finest hotels around the world. The book includes recipes that I have been baking at home for years, including favourites such as garlic baguettes, chorizo & chilli Scotch eggs, my mum’s ginger biscuits and a gorgeous hazelnut cappuccino cake. I have also included photos from my family albums and some professional insights into what makes a great baker. I really hope that you will enjoy the book. It will be in shops on November 2nd, but you can pre-order it here. To accompany the book there will also be a four part series on Channel 4. More details on that to come . . .
For all those who have been asking when Bake Off will be starting, we can finally tell you that the first episode will be on Tuesday 29th August at 8pm. I can’t wait to find out what you all think of the new bakers, who I promise are a very talented bunch this year.
