A lighter way to bake
LORRAINE PASCALE’S fun, sociable style of cookery came to wide public attention with her landmark BBC2 television series, Baking Made Easy. With treats such as the ‘I Can’t Believe You Made That’ Cake, Lorraine introduced millions of viewers to her amazingly easy but still very wow-y recipes. The book of the series went on to be a perennial bestseller. Lorraine followed this up with Home Cooking Made Easy and Fast, Fresh and Easy Food, and quickly became the most successful debut cookery writer ever in Britain.
Lorraine earned her stripes training at Leiths School of Food and Wine, where she earned a diploma, and went on to complete a four-year degree in International a Culinary Arts gaining a first-class degree. After doing stages at some of the most renowned kitchens in the world (among them Petrus and the Mandarin Oriental), Lorraine decided that working 18-hour days for someone else wasn’t for her. She decided to start her own business, The Cupcake Bakehouse located in London’s Covent Garden, and create popular books for busy people who want to make delicious, imaginative food without too much fuss and hassle.
