BCLM does Bake Off

26 October 2016

In order to celebrate the finale of our favourite baking tv show, we have asked two of our managers to rise to the occasion and get stuck into a ‘technical challenge’… with a twist.

With no electricity, no refrigeration and no modern weighing scales the pair must go head to head in a Victorian kitchen to create the perfect gingerbread man. The judges? Two Victorian Costumed Demonstrators, of course!

Managers Hayley McCafferty-David and Kevin Cooksey, will give up modern day facilities and take on the task that our costumed staff demonstrate each weekend, by attempting to recreate a recipe from the world famous Mrs Beeton’s Book of Household Management with the method instructions removed. They’ll have to master a two hundred year old cast iron range as well as the fine art of weighing their ingredients on an old-fashioned pair of scales.
