The book is the idea of Linda Morris and her committee "The Baking Belles.” Linda is a keen baker and mother to professional chef, Ed Shaerf (Chef Patron at One Blenheim Terrace). The Baking Belles include Ingrid Salida, loves cooking and volunteered to test the celebrity recipes by baking all of them to ensure they all work. Lindsay Shaerf, a solicitor and wife to Ed Shaerf. Anouska Plaut, a childbirth educator, journalist, great cake baker and mother to two young children. Elisa Margolin, studied BSc in Food & Consumer Management at university and a fantastic novelty cake baker and a mother to two young children.
Linda has been involved with charity work in Islington for the past eight years and knew of The Ben Kinsella Trust and how it important it was for it to take an anti-knife crime exhibition to schools around the country to educate children of all ages and achieve its aims. The committee all agreed that this was such a worthwhile cause and set out to compile this book and raise the much needed funds for the Trust.
