Sheffield-born Howard Middleton has been baking since childhood. He first caught the public’s attention on series 4 of the BBC’s The Great British Bake Off and he went on to win their affection with his quirky style and love of unusual ingredients.
Often remembered as the victim of the infamous 'Custardgate’ incident, Howard even managed to produce some successful bakes, including a tea-flavoured biscuit tower shaped like a pagoda and a Black Forest cake complete with a chocolate bear.
His first book, ‘Delicious Gluten-Free Baking’ was published in September 2015 and he is a regular writer for the Great British Chefs website. He regularly demonstrates at food festivals and shows across the country.
