 Happy Monday, I hope you’ve all had a lovely weekend.  If however, that back to work funk has hit you, then let me cheer you up with news of our very first Let’s Bake meeting!

Where: Velocity, at the top of Stephens Brae

Theme: Local Produce

There will be twelve spaces for this first meeting.  If you are interested in attending please e-mail me and Susan to confirm your spot and to let us know what you will be bringing, just to avoid any duplicate items.  Please let us know a week before the meeting, so by the 18th September.  Our address is letsbakeinverness [at] gmail [dot] com.

We have chosen to keep the theme very open for the first meeting, break us all in gently!  So, by local produce we mean that at least one of your ingredients should be sourced from the Inverness area.  You bake can really be anything.  Let your imagination run wild!  Sweet or savoury, biscuits or scones, bread of cupcakes.  Truly bake whatever you want as long as it contains some lovely local ingredients.  Also, this is not a competition.  We don’t mind if you’re a professional or a complete novice, as long as you love to bake and eat!  If I could give you any tips though, I’d say that savoury items are usually the least common but most enjoyed.  From previous experience of baking club meetings we have usually eaten so much sugar that the savoury bakes are a delightful reprieve!

The main thing is that we all have fun so if you fancy it please get in touch to book your space!

Welcome to Let’s Bake Inverness!

If you love to bake and share your baking with others, as well as having a good chat with friends, then this is the place for you.

Let’s Bake – Inverness is a baking club which meets every couple of months in a venue somewhere in the Inverness area.  The aim to meet lovely people, have a good chat and enjoy (un)healthy quantities of home baking.  Now, don’t let the word club put you off, Let’s Bake is just an excuse to meet up with some friends for some good home baking and even better chat.  There is nothing formal here, no membership, no fees – just cake…and bread and pastry and biscuits…

Each meeting will have a different theme which will be announced well in advance on our homepage, there will be between 10 and 15 places, depending upon the venue, and all that is required is that you bring along yourself, your bake and buy your beverages from the chosen venue.  Well, there is a couple more things – please could you bring along a plate suitable for your bake and also, if your bake requires a knife and/or another serving implement we would be really grateful if you could bring that along too!

We are  Susan Barrie (@susan_barrie) and Kirsty Montgomery (@eversokirsty) and we have a shared love of baking and all things cake.  We were both part of baking clubs in Fife and Glasgow respectively and now that we are both in Inverness, it seemed like the perfect time to bring the phenomenon up north and start our own club.
