Stand by Your Nan with Rachel Sambrooks

Episode 5: Gran British Bake Off

July 14, 2021

Did you learn to cook with your Gran? I'm keeping it in the family this episode as my artist cousin Jacqui Calladine joins me to bake Shrewsbury Cakes and talk about my Nan Eve, creating art, moving with the seasons and how to value being wild and creative. 

Bake along with the recipe from Great Step Gran Alice's recipe book!
