If you're not, where have you been? Meet The Fabulous Baker Brothers, Tom and Henry Herbert, who appeared in their very own Channel 4 TV series at the beginning of the year. Their roots stem from the legendary family Hobbs House Bakery, established in 1920 in the Cotswolds, which Tom is now sales director. Their cheeky-chappy ways have been "woo-ing" the hearts of women all over Britain with their manly expertise in dough and meat - but I'm sorry ladies, they are both taken!
But guess who is in proud possesion of a signed copy of their new book? ME!! And they called me a "Baking Sister" - chuffed to bits doesn't quite cover how I feel about this!
|My very own dedication from Tom and Henry Herbert!!|
|The brothers aim to show you just how easy it can be|

And apparently, as the lovely lads started doodling away on the inside pages of their brand new cook book, they turned to her and said, "Well make sure she has a towel and stand well back!" Oh dear, how embarrassing!
I wasn't quite that hysterical, but it was presented to me after spending the afternoon watching Wales win the Grand Slam in the pub, meaning I was a little more hyper than usual and my reaction was priceless - lots of screaming, hugging and shouting!
But I have the book and I can't wait to try out the recipes as a (fabulous) baking sister. Oh yeah!
Book available for £10.99 from Amazon - it really is a beautiful addition to any foodie's collection. Expect plenty of buns, breads and sour dough mixtures, manly meaty mains, and my favourite - a "get out of trouble" chocolate cake!
