Editor’s Notes:

  • The original KitchenAid Artisan 4.8L Stand Mixer was designed in 1937 by one of the great American style gurus, Egmont Arens, and it remains timeless in its simplicity and function. The Stand Mixer continues to use the same ‘planetary action’, which sees the beater rotate in one direction while it whisks and turns in the other – the ideal motion for creating perfect dough. www.kitchenaid.co.uk
  • Associated charity is Farming and Countryside Education (FACE), the leading charity providing food, farming and countryside education to children, through practical, interesting and enjoyable activities in the classroom and on farms www.face-online.org.uk
  • Tiptree is headline sponsor of the World Bread Awards. The first Tiptree preserves were made in 1885 and Tiptree jams and preserves are now sold across the world, many of them made with fruit still grown on their farms in Essex www.tiptree.com
