THE BOY WHO BAKES…

THe Boy Who Bakes

Edd Kimber is the boy who bakes and the winner of BBC2’s Great British Bake Off in 2010 and the author of two great books, ‘Say It With Cakes’, and the popular ‘The Boy Who Bakes’.

His blog is full of brilliant recipes and ideas.

Edd says on his about page that ‘After winning the BBC Two series The Great British Bake Off in 2010 my life has been a rollercoaster journey in food and I’ve been lucky enough to do some amazing things. In late 2010 I worked at Raymond Blancs restaurant Le Manoir gaining experience in the pastry kitchen Since then I have appeared on numerous TV shows including Market Kitchen Big Adventure (Good Food Channel) and The Alan Titchmarsh Show (ITV1). I also regularly appear in print and have featured in magazines such as Good Food Magazine, Attitude, Waitrose Weekend (cover image) and have also appeared in numerous national newspapers including The Independent and The Sun. I am also a regular at food festivals across the country and regularly appear at the BBC Good Food Show Live’.

Well what more can I say except enjoy his books and his blog they are truly brilliant.
I have written two cookbooks The Boy Who Bakes(Kyle Books, 2011) and Say It With Cake(Kyle Books, 2012 – to be published in America Aug 2013) I really hope you enjoy baking from my books and get as much pleasure from them as I did writing them, you check out all the details on my Book page.
