One of the things I really liked about this year’s event was it’s simplicity. No stars, no oven building, no mobile oven, no programme, not even much advance planning for baking themes. Not that I’m against any of these things but Joe made available a great variety of flours and ingredients, he and Jay had the menus sorted, and people just turned up and got on with it and each other.
As well as the pen drawings, Pam took a load of crowd shots:
Look at that water pouring technique!
