Miranda Gore Browne achieved widespread acclaim as a finalist on the first series of BBC2’s The Great British Bake Off. She was highly praised for her home baking, which was described consistently as both delicious and beautiful. Miranda made a great impression with her “signature bake” biscuits in the form of perfectly dainty decorated shoes, pretty dresses and stylish handbags. Such was the success of the programme and the popularity of its stars that BBC2 commissioned a one-off programme for royal wedding week, The Great British Wedding Cake, which featured the three finalists from the first series.
Miranda’s blog of recipes and baking ideas has attracted a keen following, and she has worked with Squires Kitchen and Kenwood teaching, guest-speaking and demonstrating. Miranda is asked regularly to give masterclasses and baking demonstrations, is a contributing chef on www.lovefood.com and has appeared at a number of food shows, including the Cake & Bake Show and the Goodwood Revival. She is also an Ambassador for the National Children’s Charity ‘Dreams Come True’ and is leading their ‘Dream Tea’ campaign.
Miranda’s first book, BISCUIT, features recipes for a tempting variety of biscuits, appealing to a spectrum of bakers, from those on their first forays into biscuit baking, to more confident cooks. BISCUIT was published by Ebury in spring 2012. Miranda’s second book, BAKE ME A CAKE AS FAST AS YOU CAN, was published by Ebury in August 2014.
Miranda lives with her husband Edward and three children, Thomas, Eleanor and Henry, in West Sussex.
