Event Details

Join UK travel/relocation consultant and former UK resident (and also former Springfield resident!) Claire Evans for a delightful culinary tour of the UK inspired by “The Great British Baking Show” television series, aired on PBS. Learn about making a proper cup of tea, regional specialties, their origins, and the particular parts of the UK they hail from. She’ll translate the trickiest parts of British recipes for Americans so you can try them in your own kitchen. Pick up useful travel tips as well, just in case you’d like to create your own tour!

If you're a "Bake-Off" fan, an Anglophile, or if you just picked up a baking habit during quarantine, join us for this little trek through British baking.
