A Great British Bake Off finalist rose to the occasion at Jordans Mill on Sunday for a demonstration double.
Ian Cumming – who was a finalist in the 2015 edition of the BBC staple – gave the demonstrations to more than 70 people as part of National Mills Weekend.
He made three different types of bread, including a six-seeded loaf with molasses and wholemeal spelt rolls, but it was a wild garlic and Parmesan loaf which stole the show.
During the demonstrations, Ian fielded questions from the audience, with one member asking Ian why he originally decided to enter the Great British Bake Off.
Ian said: “My wife and I were watching the 2014 series final and Helen remarked that she would love to go to the tea party held for the finalists during the final programme.

“And that’s how I ended up applying, so that Helen could go to the tea party, never for one minute imagining it would actually happen.”
