What we do:
Baking society is a very relaxed place for people who love baking to chat and share recipes! Whether you have just started or you are a professional we don't mind! We bake at home for different themes and then we share what we've made with other people in the society. Unfortunately we can not teach people to bake as the university does not have any feasible rooms where we could do this but we are hoping to organise several baking and cooking classes with professionals throughout the course of the year.
When we meet:
From September, we will be meeting every other Thursday evening from 6:30-9pm in the Julian Study Centre for our themed baking socials on campus. We also have some exciting baking and cooking themed events planned in and around Norwich, last year these included a cocktail crawl and a cake crawl!
Themes this semester for each meeting:
