Kate Barmby Children's Classes

Kate Barmby brought a distinctly local flavour to Great British Bake Off 2016. Watched by millions, her passion for local, seasonal food was evident as she championed the fantastic produce Norfolk has to offer by using local meat, oils, flour and fruit in her Bake Off recipes. Kate's classic home cooking is influenced by her farming background and family life, but her showstopping skill is her creative baking, demonstrated by her gorgeous sugarcraft, pastry art and bread sculptures. Bake Off may have given Kate the chance to take-off with a whole new strand to her career, but she remains delightfully grounded, reluctant to chase fame or fortune but instead is relishing the opportunity to carry on cooking and share her love with others.

We are delighted to welcome Kate as a guest teacher at the Richard Hughes Cookery School where she will be offering a whole host of fabulous classes for grown-ups and children alike. We'd love you to come along and cook with Kate!
