The Baking Bird - Lizzie creates specialty home baked and hand made goods, making the most of the wealth of fantastic produce available here in Dorset.
I have been cooking & baking since I was knee high to a grasshopper. I used to plague my mother's baking days by "helping" & I use that term loosely. The over kneaded grey pastry jam tarts were always a favourite.
My best ever memory of true baking success was when I was about 3 or 4 years old & I made fairy cakes with my long suffering Mum. My Dad came home from work & I was so excited ... Dad took a bite & rolled on his back with his arms & legs in the air to play dead - I just KNEW he loved them. I am pleased to say that the baking has moved on a little since then ....
Today you will find an amazing selection of hand made seasonal breads, pastries, bakes, savories, biscuits, puddings and wherever my imagination takes me. But you can guarantee that it's Dorset through and through.
