Welcome to my new website!

I am really excited to show off the new website, and I hope you all enjoy it. The picture here is from a photoshoot we did for the website, the Victoria sponge went down really well with all the crew! The website contains lots of my favourite baking recipes, as well as tips to make sure you avoid any soggy bottoms and other baking disasters. If you have any baking questions then please do post them on my new Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/paul.hollywood.718 and each week I will be answering one on my Ask Paul page on the website.

I have just been on holiday, which was very relaxing, but I am now back and raring to go. I have just started filming a new show, Pies and Puds, which will be coming soon to the BBC, accompanied by a fantastic new book.  I will let you know more about it all soon. For the show, I have been travelling around the UK meeting new and specialist producers and learning what they do. I have been everywhere, from filming in a truckers’ cafe to checking out a chilli farm!

In between filming, I will be travelling all over the world, baking at various events. This month alone, I will be cooking at the Stratford-upon-Avon Food Festival on 15th September and then flying down to Johannesburg, South Africa on  21st for the Cape Gourmet Festival. Please check out Paul’s Calendar to find out when and where I will be, and do come and say hello.

And, finally the wait is over – The Great British Bake Off is back. I hope you have been enjoying the new series so far and agree that all the bakers this year are fantastic. I have loved watching all their signature bakes and showstoppers coming out of the oven, as well as seeing if they are up to the technical challenges this year, which Mary and I reckon are trickier than ever!

I really hope you enjoy the website and my blog (which I will be updating every couple of weeks). Now get baking, and please do tweet or Facebook me pictures of your showstoppers!

Bye Paul x
