New baking sensation, Jack Sturgess of ‘Bake with Jack’ has won the Local Hero category in the Fantastic British Food Festivals’ new Fantastic Food Stars competition. The overall winner will be revealed on 18 September by Great British Bake-off winner Nadiya Hussain at the Sandown Park Food Festival.
Jack, who is based in Camberley, knew he wanted to work in food from a very early age. After an eight-year career in professional kitchens he launched Bake with Jack in 2013. Bake with Jack is the realisation of his dream of teaching people to bake in their own homes – and showing that homemade bread is achievable in any location.
Jack visits with all the ingredients and equipment and clears up afterwards. All you have to do is enjoy learning about baking bread. Jack says: “I put all my energy into Bake with Jack, and
work very hard to make my baking courses super special every time.”
