“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.”
As do so many of the customers who have found the Baking Bird, Lizzie Crow on her bun run. Homemade pies, savouries, quiches, tempting tarts, drizzled cakes and puff pastries.
The kitchen in her Dorset cottage is always busy. The walls lined with pots and pans, with herbs and ingredients in every nook and cranny and the wholesome heady aroma of freshly baked bread, cakes and pastry.
A regular at the Dorset Farmers Markets she can also be found at the Royal Standard in Upwey.
