It’s that time of year when the only question I ever get asked is ‘When is The Great British Bake Off starting?!’ I am afraid I can’t give you a date just yet, but I can tell you it’s very, very soon! As you know normally the show airs at the beginning of August, however, this year it will be slightly later due to the Olympics. Keep an eye on my Facebook, Twitter & Instagram and I will let you know the date as soon as it’s released. But what I can tell you is that yet again it’s going to be a brilliant series! This year I have really noticed that the bakers not only want to win, but also to challenge each other to be the best baker. They are really ambitious and you can really see it in the results. I can’t wait to hear what you think about the show and this year’s bakers.
I have been pretty busy in the run up to the show starting, launching my very own range of ready mixes. It’s been so exciting coming up with the mixes range and as well as including some gorgeous breads, including a Garlic & Herb Tear N’ Share and a Tomato & Thyme Bloomer, I have also included some of my favourite sweet treats, including a seriously gooey luxurious Chocolate Brownie and my famous Scone recipe. For more information click here. If you need something to bake these in you will be excited to hear that I have also launched my first ever range of bakeware. I have designed all the pieces that I use, including miniature bakeware, proving baskets and some fantastic accessories. I hope that you find something that will be useful for your kitchen. For full details of the range visit Kitchen Craft.
Finally, if you haven’t got your tickets yet for the BBC Good Food Festival at Hampton Court this summer Bank Holiday it’s not too late. It’s going to be an incredible weekend and I will be there baking live on the Monday. For more details check out my calendar.
So here’s to a sunny summer full of fantastic bakes!
