About Meryl White

Grandma Abson's Traditional Baking is all about simple and tasty baking, a legacy from my Grandma's time as a cook-housekeeper in Edwardian times and a lifetime of baking. As I was growing up, I watched her bake and cook, and acquired her passion for baking. Now I love to share heritage baking themes. I deliver the talks with a digital projector and can bring my equipment - projector and screen. I bring cakes to taste in keeping with the baking theme.
