In an attempt to boost British Baker’s baking skills, the team visited Brook Food in Somerset where we caught up with Mark Bennett, our 2014 Baking Industry Awards Baker of the Year.

Bennett of Mark Bennett Patisserie in Poole, was asked to join the editorial and advertising team from British Baker at Brook, where he let us get our hands dirty with some sourdough loaves.

Bennett said he was working on plans to start a baking school at the bakery, and also spoke of ambitions to open a celebratory cake shop in addition to his three-strong fleet.

The baking antics were all caught on camera - watch the video below to hear more about our award-winning baker’s plans, and see some of the team try their hand at some baking themselves…
