Wow isn’t the weather scorching at the moment. Imagine how hot it’s been in the Bake Off tent! Let’s hope our bakers can keep their cool this season.
Last week my summer newsletter went out. For those that subscribe you now have the opportunity to try my stunning Strawberry and Rosewater Tart which is perfect for eating whilst watching Wimbledon, or my showstopper of a Blueberry Meringue Cake. If you haven’t signed up for the newsletter yet, sign up on my website now. As well as news and tips, the newsletter includes exclusive recipes and interviews with other foodies who inspire me. The next newsletter will be sent out at the end of the summer.
Those of you who follow me on Instagram @bakerhollywood will know after baking my first love is cars and bikes. I recently I have been enjoying a bit of both, not only checking out some incredible machines at the Henry Surtees Foundation but also getting the opportunity to jump on my bike with my son and head to the beach for an ice cream.
I also have some really exciting news this week. I was lucky enough to take part in the new series of Who Do You Think You Are for the BBC. It was such a fascinating process and took me all over the place. Dates are yet to be announced of when the series starts, but keep an eye on my Facebook and Twitter and I will let you know as soon as I hear.
