Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Sandy Docherty

Where: Castle Inner Bailey

We're delighted to welcome Sandy back to Ludlow following the success of 'Bake in Time' last year.

If you're a Bake Off fan, you'll instantly remember Sandy from the class of 2015 with her bubbly personality and down to earth approach, demonstrating how a crème brulee should be like a bottom wobble and then again in the Christmas Special 2017 when she had Noel Fielding (literally) eating out the palm of her hand!

Sandy started baking as a child and likens her style to the way she’d describe herself, 'it might not be glamorous but it’s tasty.'

In her role as a Child Welfare Officer in her home county of Yorkshire, she helps young people with emotional issues and after work runs a cookery club where she teaches children from deprived backgrounds to bake on a budget.

Since Bake Off, Sandy teaches and demos across the country, with her ethos that baking enables everyone to express themselves in their own unique way.
