Gary started baking when he was at school as his first Saturday job, from here he learnt his craft working in small artisan bakeries including some of the world’s leading hotels and bakeries. Gary met his co-director and friend Mike Cook over 30 years ago when they both worked as traveling test bakers for an American ingredients company. From here
