Next Band of Bakers Event: ‘Baking with Cheese’

We are delighted to announce that the first Band of Bakers event in 2014 will take place on Thursday 27th February.

The theme for this event is Baking with Cheese.

Sadly not one for the lactose-intolerant, this event will be all about the celebration of cheese in its many forms.  It could perhaps be a cake with a cream cheese frosting, a cheesecake, a quiche or a vegetarian take on a classic pasty or sausage roll.  There has never been a wider range of British and international cheeses available as there are now to experiment with.

To book a place at this event, please email us at bandofbakersse@gmail.com *spaces are limited*

Next Band of Bakers Event: ‘Inherited Recipes’

We are delighted to announce that the first Band of Bakers event in 2014 will take place on Wednesday 29th January.

The theme for this event is Inherited Recipes.

This event is an opportunity to celebrate the tradition of inheriting recipes from others.  This could be a treasured family recipe that has been handed down through generations, a fingerprint-covered old recipe card that you could not live without.  It could also be a recipe given by a friend after you tried something delicious they made and wanted to recreate at home.  These are all recipes with stories behind them and illustrate the link between baking and nostalgia.

*This event is now fully booked*

Happy New Year from Band of Bakers!

Hello and Happy New Year from Band of Bakers!

We would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who was involved with Band of Bakers in 2013.  It was an excellent year for us; we appeared on Paul Hollywood’s Bread, had the opportunity to work with Dan Lepard to launch his book Short and Sweet in the Netherlands and had a number of great events across south east London.

2014 is set to be equally as exciting. The details for our first event are due to be released shortly.  We are also in the process of designing a new website, set to go live in the next few weeks. 

To be among the first to hear of Band of Bakers news and upcoming events, please join our mailing list by emailing bandofbakersse@gmail.com.  You can also follow us on Twitter: @BandofBakers

WINTER WARMERS

It’s that time of year when there is a nip in the air, the evenings are drawing in and comfort food is very much the order of the day!  We invite you to concoct the perfect winter warmer – the kind of bake you would reach for to warm your cockles on a cold day, or perhaps share with friends around a bonfire.  Remember, your bake can be sweet or savoury – whatever takes your fancy.

Places for this event will be limited to 20 and will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please email bandofbakersse@gmail.com to register and we will send you a confirmation letter and the event info.  If you have any queries please get in touch by emailing us.
