The Baker Brothers
Brothers Tom and Henry had great success at the start of this year with their hit Channel 4 television show and accompanying book, The Fabulous Baker Brothers.
Their ascension continues as they are currently filming their second series and a one-off Christmas special, as well as preparing for the release of another book.
As 5th generation bakers they have come from a long line of family food lovers and are carrying on the tradition with gusto.
Fresh out of baking college, Tom won Young Baker of the Year, heading out with a wealth of artisanal nous. His family business, Hobbs House Bakery has won many prestigious awards and featured in the Independent’s top 50 food shops.
Henry, ex head chef of the Coach and Horses in Farringdon, is passionate about carefully sourced, good quality seasonal ingredients. Reviving old recipes is part of his mission to restore the food culture in Britain. Henry now runs a butchery with the aim to shake up modern meat tastes.
The brothers are no strangers to television, with Tom having appeared in his own BBC4 documentary, In Search of the Perfect Loaf and Henry featuring as a contestant on BBC 2’s Great British Menu. Tom and Henry are also talented journalists and are regular contributors to renowned food publications as Fire and Knives as well as featuring in several newspaper columns.
