With The Great British Bake Off on our screens again and having experimented with all banana bread variations, sourdough making and perfecting our culinary skills over the past year and a half, it seems we are all still into our baking and cooking. So, I 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 fondue set from Staub, and some great accessories from independent makers. Check it out…
