Unlock the molecular mysteries of baking in our exclusive webinar with Great British Bake-Off 2023 finalist Josh Smalley. In this hour long, interactive event Josh will broadcast live from his own laboratory kitchen using baking demonstrations to explore how chemistry plays an all-important role in the success or failure of bakes. Are you someone who carefully measures out your ingredients when cooking, or do you take a more relaxed approach to quantities? Josh will explore whether it’s important to bring scientific precision to your bakes and if you can ever get away without using the scales.

Beyond the oven, Josh will share his personal journey as a chemist, what his inspiration was to begin baking and how he combines a successful research career with his passion for food. The webinar will also look at how Josh navigated the competitive landscape of the Great British Bake-Off and discuss the surprising parallels his experience had to being a researcher in chemistry.

Register now for the opportunity to witness the magic of baking through the lens of chemistry in a webinar experience that will leave your taste buds tingling and your scientific curiosity stirred!

Josh Smalley

Josh Smalley is a postdoctoral research associate in the School of Chemistry at the University of Leicester focussing on the synthesis of new peptidomimetic materials which act as mimics of the native peptides found in the cells in our body. Josh was also a finalist in the 2023 Great British Bake-Off where he captivated audiences with his skilful techniques and mastery of flavours. Being equally accomplished in the laboratory and the kitchen has allowed Josh to infuse his culinary creations with a unique understanding of the molecular make-up of the bakes he showcases. He is now looking to combine his research with science communication.
