Winner of the Great British Bake Off and passionate cook, baker, eco friend and most of all I enjoy teaching, sharing the skills I have obtained over many years. The feedback I get regularly is that I have the ability to make things look easy. If it doesn’t have to be done – I don’t do it. Let us have fun at the same time as learning the short cuts, tips and secrets to success.
My background & experienceSince winning the fifth series of The Great British Bake Off in 2014, I have written three books. My first book, Sizzle and Drizzle. (2019) , is a baking and cooking book which covers every baking discipline and is supported by “how to” videos accessed using QR codes.. My second and third books (both UK top 10 Bestsellers) concentrate on living a ‘greener’ life. In these books I share recipes for eco friendly cleaning recipes plus tips and tricks on how to save the plant and money by working smarter, using less and wasting less. I post regularly on social media and have a delightful group of followers who are literally all over the world.
