Ludlow Food Festival

The Original Festival for Food and Drink Lovers

Candice Brown

Where: Wot's Cooking Stage - Inner Bailey

Great British Bake Off winner, 2016 & author

Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran – famously immortalised in gingerbread for her most talked about 'showstopper.'

Taught to bake by her beloved Nan, Candice strives to emulate her style, often referring back to her treasured recipe book and hand written notes. Candice loves everything vintage and her sense of style certainly captured 'Great British Bake Off' viewers’ attention.

With a degree in Sport, Physical Education and Community Studies, Candice was a secondary school teacher when she applied for the show and managed to juggle planning her fabulous bakes and filming commitments with teaching lively teenagers.

Since her GBBO victory, she has been extremely busy with a diverse range of projects. A regular columnist for 'The Sunday Times,' writing in the magazine and The Dish. She has baked on 'This Morning' and 'Christmas Kitchen,' has appeared as a panellist on 'Loose Women,' took part in ITV's 'Dancing on Ice.' Works with various charities and big brand promotions, has featured in Hello and Ok! magazine and has become an Ambassador for Avon Cosmetics.

Candice’s first book, Comfort (Ebury Press) was released in July 2017, a labour of love with easy to make and no nonsense recipes - Candice will be available for book signings at the Festival.

In December 2018, Candice and her brother Ben took on 'The Greenman Pub' in Eversholt. After a full refurbishment and menu overhaul they opened to great reviews and excitement of the local community in February this year with many exciting plans for the venue going forward.

During her spare time, you can find Candice walking her beloved dogs Dennis, Albus and Sybil with her husband Liam, in the stands at Tottenham or the rugby with her dad or settling down to a great big Sunday roast with her family.
