New Member: Marie Lester

An obsessive home baker and collector of vintage kitchenalia, Marie caught the baking bug while writing recipes for Vintage Breadboards (Prospect, 2019). In 2020 Marie developed a sourdough bread recipe for Sharpham Park’s new ‘Heritage’ spelt flour and made accompanying demonstration films, which can be viewed on Sharpham Park’s website. With inspiration and ideas for new bakes often coming quicker than she can write the recipes, Marie aims to develop and describe an in-depth and practical knowledge of sourdough, enriched breads, yeasted breads and all things in between.
