Fresh out of baking college, Tom won Baker Of the Year and his signature sourdough has won Organic Loaf of the Year 9 times in the last 10 years. Now, along with his butcher brother Henry, the two work and cook side by side, professionally and domestically, creating every element of a meal; from the bun to the burgers and even the homemade pickles that top them off.
Last year Henry, 24, left his role as Head Chef of the award winning Coach and Horses in Clerkenwell to face a new challenge, buying the traditional butchers next door to his brother Tom`s bakery. Now the two work and cook side by side, professionally and domestically, creating every element of a meal; from the bun to the burgers and even the homemade pickles that top them off.
Ken Hom was born in the United States of Chinese parents. He studied art history at the University of California and lived in nearby Berkeley until 1998 when he moved to south-west France where he is now based permanently. His first BBC television series, Chinese Cookery, in 1984 and its accompanying book assured him a place in the hearts of all those fascinated by Oriental cookery. Together with Ken Hom's Hot Wok and Ken Hom Travels with a Hot Wok, on fusion food, Ken has created a trio of bestsellers which has sold over one and a half million copies around the world.
