cook breads in San Francisco and Virginia beach, cakes in Costa Rica and Chongqing, scones in Kiama , éclairs in Melbourne and even cooking over an open fire in Malawi. I know just how wonderful it is to share good food with people world-wide. Making new friends, swapping know-how and laughter is the perfect recipe for building new friendships – barriers of language, culture, disability and more just disappear!
I wonder who decides what we celebrate and why? But who cares if today is an excuse to make a delicious cake, a brilliant biscuit or beguiling bread?
One of my best baking days was with John for Comic Relief https://youtu.be/6SaB88MiUu4
We made flapjacks, pecan pie and much more in an indulgence of calories . Clearly, World Baking Day needs to be followed by weeks of World Diet Days.
