What is BAEK about? AE is a per­sonal cre­ative pro­tect that has man­i­fested into a pa­per ine as well as an on­line blog. The line is re­leased quar­terly and each is­sue has a hand­ful of recipes, a lick of pseudo sci­ence, a sprin­kle of po­etry and a lot of sass.

What sparked the idea to do a zine around bak­ing? Bak­ing is a sci­ence but on The Great South African Bake Off I learned how to play with own avour com­bi­na­tions and ideas. I de­cided to cre­ate a pro­tect for self af­ter the show that would keep me break­ing the bak­ing rules.

What should ev­ery­one try to bake at least once? Bread! Even though I am a sucker for cakes and more del­i­cate con­fec­tionary, I think the smell of freshly baked bread is the hook that will keep all first timers com­ing back for more.

What can we ex­pect from BAEK Vol. 2? My ul­ti­mate choco­late chip cookie recipe, as well as a sa­chet of NOMU's new amaz­ing just add wa­ter hot choco­late Baek.co.za
