BIY - Bake it Yourself! And we did..
We had an amazing day yesterday working in partnership with Oken Kitchen and Great British Bake Off 2014 finalist, builder Richard Burr. Richard has provided the ultimate baking toolkit, in the form of his book BIY - Bake it Yourself!
Two groups made up of Warwickshire baking enthusiasts joined us for this rare opportunity to bake with the master builder and hear him talk about his book. Arriving with their ready baked masterpieces to share with the group, bakers were judged by our expert and there were no soggy bottoms to be found!
Richard was great fun, enthusiastic and laidback, with his trademark pencil behind his ear, and all our bakers really enjoyed the session. We were extreemly fortunate that Warwick Book's favourite photographer Martin Sean took pictures of the event and these can be seen on his website. Beautiful shots of our bakers and the new Oken Kitchen premisis. If you would like to order copies for the pictures let us know. Click here for a full view!
We were delighted to be working with Oken's Kitchen for this event which we hope will be the first of many. Sign up for our mailing list to hear about future events.
Thanks to Richard, Oken Kitchen and Martin and congratulations to our star bakers!
