Great British Bake Off Contestants

Posted on 12/06/14

Who will be on the list of Great British Bake Off Contestants this year?


This summer BBC 1 is hosting the 2014 series of ‘The Great British Bake Off’. The big question is…. who will be amongst the contestants?


We are fortunate enough to work with 3 existing BBC Great British Bake Off finalists & semi-finalists teaching our range of baking courses.



Ruth Clemens  (The Pink Whisk) – Series 1 Finalist

Since becoming a finalist in the first series of the Bake Off Ruth’s baking success continued as she become the founder of the popular baking blog ‘The Pink Whisk’. When Ruth isn’t looking after her three wonderful son’s she can be found in her kitchen creating recipes, writing her recipe books or teaching here at Seasoned.

Ruth teaches our ‘Brilliant Bread Making Course’ – perfect for any budding bakers!


Brendan Lynch – Series 3 Finalist

Since the Bake Off Brendan has been teaching baking courses with us at Seasoned Cookery School.  Brendan’s showstopping bakes are always popular amongst the students (choux pastry cygnets are definitely a favourite!) and his savoury danish on our Bread Baking & Sweet Treats course is THE favourite lunch of the Seasoned team!

Take a look at Brendan’s baking courses and see which one takes your fancy!



Beca Lyne-Pirkis – Series 4 Semi-finalist

Beca was a semi finalist in the 2013, Beca’s was well known for her welsh inspired home cooking, a passion which she shares during her baking courses –  Pies & Puddings. For those with more of a sweet tooth her ‘Afternoon Tea Treats’ is a superb course.
