Irvin L. Young Library Presents “The Great British Baking Tour: Holiday Edition”

Editor’s note: The following information was provided by the Irvin L. Young Memorial Library.

Join UK travel/relocation consultant and former UK resident Claire Evans for a delightful culinary tour of the UK inspired by “The Great British Baking Show” television series, aired on PBS. Learn about making a proper cup of tea, regional specialties, their origins, and the particular parts of the UK they hail from. As it’s soon the holidays, she’ll focus on festive baking in particular.  She’ll translate the trickiest parts of British recipes for Americans so you can try them in your own kitchen. Pick up useful travel tips as well, just in case you’d like to create your own tour!

Claire Evans started her love of most things British as she and her mother watched countless episodes of “Are You Being Served,” “Fawlty Towers,” and “The Vicar of Dibley” on PBS.  She went on to study abroad in London and, against the odds, she married a Brit she met in Peoria, Illinois.  They moved to England, where they lived for a number of years.  Outside of her work for a legal advice charity, Claire became a student of historical sights, pub dining, and tea shops.  Her business, Tea with Claire, grew from friends asking for travel and relocation advice.
