The Great British Bake Off Final!

Paul and Nancy

So Nancy is the Great British Bake Off Champion for 2014! I hope you all enjoyed the final and in fact the whole series. We had such a ball making the show and as usual I think we kept you all guessing on the winner until the end. As Mary and I keep saying our winner is the best baker on the final weekend and Nancy most certainly won hands down. So the tent is empty again till next year.

I certainly won’t be slowing down as my new book Paul Hollywood’s British Baking is out tomorrow! I am so excited about my new book. It’s all my favourite recipes from England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales; from baked Somerset Brie to Scottish oatcakes.

To support the book I am back out on tour all round the country at the beginning of next month. I will be baking recipes from the book as well as a few seasonal recipes. I was amazed at how much fun and how knowledgeable the audiences were on my first tour and I can’t wait to meet people in places I didn’t manage to get to last time, especially our dates in Ireland and my home town of Liverpool.

Until the tour kicks off I am out and about letting everyone know about the book, so this morning I got to share Eccles cakes with Grimmy on Radio 1 and tomorrow I will be hanging with those gorgeous Loose Women on ITV. So keep an eye out for me!

In between all that I am working on some special recipes for my Christmas newsletter which will go out in December. If you haven’t subscribed yet, then you must.

Happy Baking x
