with Food Historian Seren Charrington-Hollins

It's not surprising that in the past 100 years, baking and indeed bakeries have undergone some significant changes. 

These changes are not just apparent in the equipment and baking methods adopted by bakers, but in the tastes and changing shopping patterns of customers. 

As we peep through the bakers window from 1920 to present day, we are able to gain a fascinating snapshot of social and commercial changes that have taken place and it is also possible to see that each decade looks to be the baking heyday only to be followed by an equally fascinating and innovative decade of baking.


Take a read through Seren's introduction to baking throughout the years in Britain, and look out for future articles on each decade that will appear every month below.
