Me at a Harvest Textiles screen printing workshop

Welcome to my buttery blog!

I am Ben – a 29 year-old guy from Australia. I have set up this site to document my adventures during 2011 and 2012. I am currently living in a little town in Derbyshire while I study baking at The School of Artisan Food. I use this blog as a record of some of things I encounter during my journey.

If you would like to contact me please send me an email or find me on Twitter.

    I was looking up custard tarts and I found you. I’m going to be busy studying your site. Actually you being from Oz might be able to help with my question.
    No matter what bakery I go to, anywhere, the pies will be different but custard tarts are all identical. Are these the same because they are mass produced in a factory and bought by bakeries ??? They all taste the same, look the same anywhere in the country!!
    I hope you can help Ben

    One more thing, I am From Oz. And speaking of our bakeries, The greatest plain pie I have ever eaten in my life is from the Paynesville Bakery in East Gippsland Victoria. The business is for sale now. I wonder if the plain pie recipe is for sale. Its probably worth a million dollars more than the business.
