After always being an awful, like AWFUL baker I discovered the 'no knead no mess' bread method created by a genius baker called Jim Lahey. I made one loaf then another and another. The loaves were not only easy to make but delicious! I can get a bit obsessive and in an attempt to relieve our growing bread bin I started giving the loaves away.....
Opened a bakery, the Orange Bakery.
This wasn't planned at all! I was just 15 but I knew that all I wanted to do was to get good bread out to people. My Dad quit his job as a teacher to become my co-baker, we crowdfunded and opened our own bakery.
Published a book with Bloomsbury called Breadsong. From the moment the book was published I got an influx of messages from people who had tried and loved the first recipe in the book, Miracle Loaf (aka the no knead no mess bread method). The messages said things like "I'm 95 and had never baked a loaf in my life, now I'm never going to stop" or "my 5yr can't tie his shoe laces but this morning he baked this focaccia!"
This got me excited so I made 200 'just add water' bread mixes, put them on instagram and gave them out for free in exchange for feedback....it worked and people loved them!
Kitty's Kits hit the market!
World bread domination!
