Event details

Children learn the secrets of traditional baking from a master baker.

There has always been a baker on Highbury Corner. Today, Ott is a destination outlet, making baked goods the traditional way. Chris Ott's family has three generations of bakers, and his recipes go back to those of his great-grandfather.

A hands-on experience, where Chris will reveal how to make shortbread, along with other time-honoured treats.
