First catching the public’s attention on series 4 of The Great British Bake Off, Howard Middleton went on to win their affection with his quirky style and love of unusual ingredients, not to mention his sheer bad luck, including being the victim of the infamous ‘Custardgate’. Howard has gone on to demonstrate his creative approach at numerous food festivals and shows and by teaching at artisan food schools. His engaging personality and sense of humour made him a popular guest panelist on Bake Off’s spin-off show, An Extra Slice, and he is a regular writer for the Great British Chefs website. His first book, ‘Delicious Gluten-Free Baking’ was published in September 2015. For its 2016 Christmas special, Howard made a memorable return to the Bake Off tent, where he even managed to get the last word on the final Bake Off on the BBC.
Howard now works with Bake With a Legend, where he teaches baking classes around the country, including at corporate events, commercial promotions and private parties. He continues to entertain audiences as a public speaker, compere and broadcaster, and has recently joined the team of presenters on BBC Radio Sheffield.
