Q & A with Alana Spencer

14th March 2018

1 - How long have you been cooking and what made you decide to be a Baker?

 

I first started creating sweet treats at the age of 15 when I mum bought me a book on how to make chocolates. I then spent all my weekends teaching myself the art of chocolate work, I was hooked. 
 

2 - Can you talk us through your style of cooking?

 

I am all about the flavour. My company, Ridiculously Rich, was created off the back of my style. The cakes I make really are ridiculously rich!! 
 

3 - Which chef/Baker has influenced you most during your career?

 

I think Heston Blumenthal is incredible. I actually had the pleasure of creating a giant square for one of his chocolate recipes he had on his show. His creativity is fascinating and I love the theatrical side of his cooking. I would say my style is more influenced by Nigella Lawson and her love for decadence. 
 

4 - What are your favourite garnishes to use when plating up?

 

My passion is sweet treats and I don’t think you can beat a dash of edible gold or a beautiful edible flower
 

5 - What is your favourite product to work with?

 

Chocolate!! Always chocolate 
 

6 - What does the future hold for you as a Baker, what is your ambition?

 

My goal is to grow Ridiculously Rich to be a household name in the luxury cake market. We are currently doing this through our team of amazing ambassadors. We hope to have 200 by the end of 2018.
