Imagine the best brownie you've ever tasted... this week Kristin chats with brownie (and cake and biscuit and more) bespoke baker, Lynsey Bleakley of Bumble and Goose. Lynsey found her calling as a health visitor with the NHS until events in her life made the job too painful to continue. When she turned to baking for therapy, it became more than a distraction, it became a business.
