There’s no doubt about it: as a nation we love our cookery. With 8.9 million of us tuning in to watch Bake Off series 9 last year* and a plethora of other cooking programmes on TV, we simply can’t get enough.
According to a report** from 2005 to 2017, the trend of UK households preparing meals with fresh ingredients from scratch has been increasing, with over a third of respondents stating that they do so at least once a day. In 2017 the figure was 11% higher than in 2005. It’s no wonder Jamie Oliver’s recipe books are consistently bestsellers at Christmas.
So as we go Bake Off-mad and gorge on all the so-called ‘food porn’ on TV, it’s easy to work up an appetite for our next meal of choice. But you of course need the right equipment to make your culinary masterpieces a reality. Forget warping trays and forever-sticking cake tins – high-quality kitchenware is the order of the day.
