Top Tips

It’s admittedly very tongue-in-cheek of me to refer to these as “masterclasses”; they are more like tips for areas of baking that I am particularly fond of: little baking bites, to dive into as and when……!

Being an amateur baker, I will bow to the professionals any day of the week; I am certainly not an authority, just a very keen home cook who loves to research and practise in order to get better.

  1. Great tips section Philip. Easy to follow for an eager novice like me. I will soon be attempting croissants with your guidance. You need to publish your telephone number so I can call you when I get stuck 🙂 🙂
