With The Great British Bake Off on our screens again and lots more time at home to experiment with all the banana bread variations, sourdough making and perfecting our culinary skills, it seems we are all getting into our baking and cooking this season. I love to bake, so have rounded up my favourite Christmas gifts for the inspired baker or the budding chef in your family.
From a personalised baking book to something more extravagant like an outdoor pizza oven, you’ll be sure to find the perfect gift for your loved ones – or yourself (*wink*). Top of my Christmas wish list is the limited-edition mixer from KitchenAid and some great accessories from independent makers. Check it out…
