Blind Baking with Penny Melville-Brown

Blind veteran Penny Melville-Brown OBE is a keen baker who makes the most delicious treats. She is a force to be reckoned with in the kitchen, and proves to us all every week that nothing can stop you if you work hard enough.

“You don’t have to be blind to cook but it helps; extra sounds and smells, touch and tastes! Our ways of cooking may be different – because of where we live, what we can grow or what we can buy – having a disability doesn’t really matter. Food is the true universal language that breaks down barriers and brings us all together – no matter who, where or what we are.” – Penny

Penny hosts baking events and her next one is coming up on July 11th. You can register your interest here: https://fruit-cake-baking-blind.eventbrite.co.uk
