Martin Booth – The Joy of Eccles Cakes


Move over Sheila Dillon! Martin Booth, as well as writing a rather wonderful blog about how fantastic Bristol is, also happens to be the UK’s foremost expert on Eccles cakes. In this sweeping epic of an Ignite talk, Martin takes us round most of the artisanal bakeries in Bristol and also to a cellar in Eccles. This being video, I’m afraid you miss out on the cakes he passed round. I’m told they were delicious.

If you have a particular corner shop confection you want to tell the world about, let us know and you too can come and treat the front row at Ignite Bristol.
