About me

Me at a Harvest Textiles screen printing workshop

Welcome to my buttery blog!

I am Ben – a 32 year-old Australian guy who’s interested in all sorts of things. I originally set up this site to document my baking adventures at The School of Artisan Food in England during 2011 and 2012, but that was a while ago now.

I’ve given the site a bit of an overhaul in the hope that it will motivate me to use it again.

If you would like to contact me please send me an email or find me on Twitter.

  1. I was looking up custard tarts and I found you. I’m going to be busy studying your site. Actually you being from Oz might be able to help with my question.
    No matter what bakery I go to, anywhere, the pies will be different but custard tarts are all identical. Are these the same because they are mass produced in a factory and bought by bakeries ??? They all taste the same, look the same anywhere in the country!!
    I hope you can help Ben

  2. One more thing, I am From Oz. And speaking of our bakeries, The greatest plain pie I have ever eaten in my life is from the Paynesville Bakery in East Gippsland Victoria. The business is for sale now. I wonder if the plain pie recipe is for sale. Its probably worth a million dollars more than the business.
