The festive spirit was truly in the air on Saturday as Great British Bake Off winner John Whaite joined RDO in Reigate. John arrived at 10am to take part in a cooking demonstration and book signing organised with manufacturer Neff.

As part of the days events, several cooking demos took place and John was available to meet and greet customers at RDO – several of which took the opportunity to have a photo with the celebrity chef.

At 12 o’clock John began his live cooking demo and treated everyone to his very popular Gingerbread Latte Cake (one of his 12 Bakes of Christmas).

As the crowds gathered at the showroom, the interaction was great and customers made the most of John’s baking knowledge, many making notes as the demonstration continued.

By the time the demonstration had finished, there was barely standing room left, but everyone had the opportunity to enjoy the finished product as people grabbed a plate and fork and tucked in.

For anyone who was unable to attend on the day, you can find the recipe for John’s Gingerbread Latte Cake here.
