We are in the middle of National Baking Week and at The Online Cookery School are posting a series of classic cake and biscuit recipes as well as traditional Christmas Pudding and Christmas Cake recipes to help you get ready for the festive season in plenty of time. We have also added a useful new page with handy temperature conversions.
So if you are curious about why we eat a Victoria Sponge when we have afternoon tea, would like a recipe for perfectly crisp Almond Shortbread Biscuits or delicious Strawberry Milkshake and White Chocolate Cupcakes then why not have a look at the blog. And with four more days to go, there are more recipes to get you dusting off your rolling pin, putting on an apron and baking.

I am a food and drink writer, chef, one-time publican and restaurant manager, and qualified ASET trainer with over thirty years of experience in hospitality. I now live and work in the Channel Islands with my beautiful family. I’ve worked on six islands and in probably just about every type of business you can imagine, from beachside burger joints to world-famous pizza restaurants and in more than a few really good food pubs, historic country inns, and a former RAC Blue Riband UK Hotel of the Year.
I have helped to create a small informal dinning group, been a group executive chef for eighteen diverse bars and eateries, demonstrated at food festivals, and contributed to the Real Food Festival Cookery Book, national and local publications, and podcasts. I am a proud member of the Guild of Food Writers and the British Guild of Beer Writers.
