London for Bakers

Grab a bowl, a wooden spoon and whip up a delight in your kitchen tonight.

Baking is the new Rock'n'Roll. Who knew?

That puts my nan up there with Keith Richards. Mind you, she does take a hell of a lot of cocaine.

The magical combination of an economic slump, a yearning to return to "the good ol' days" and the televisual juggernaut that is the Great British Bake Off has seen an explosive resurgence of baking up and down the country.

There's something for all tastes too: sweet, savoury, snack, feast - it all comes under the delicious gastronomic umbrella that is "baking".

So grab a bowl, a wooden spoon and whip up a delight in your kitchen tonight.
