Lorraine trained at the leading Leiths School of Food and Wine before completing spells in some of the most renowned kitchens in the world. Eager to work for herself and exercise her baking talents Lorraine couldn’t wait to start her own business, The Cupcake Bakehouse, in London’s Covent Garden. Wide public attention beckoned after her landmark BBC 2 TV series, Baking Made Easy, introduced millions of viewers to her easy, impressive recipes. The book of the series went on to be a bestseller and was followed up by an even more popular book and series, Home Cooking Made Easy, making Lorraine the most successful debut cookery writer in the UK at that time.
