Inside Great British Bake Off host Prue Leith’s home kitchen

Ever wondered what it’s like inside Prue Leith’s kitchen? Well, after moving into a new home, the GBBO presenter opens up about colour and cookery…

Best known for her critiquing of cakes and beautiful bakes, Prue Leith has presented on Channel 4’s Great British Bake Off and The Great Celebrity Bake Off. Good Homes magazine gets a sneak peek inside her colourful new kitchen…

Bright and beautiful kitchen

As a lover of colour, Prue joins kitchen manufacturer Omega to highlight its colour range –  at a time when we are all spending more time in the kitchen. Her ambassadorial role for the British kitchen makers gets underway this month as Omega explore what the typical UK kitchen looks like. This includes insights on interesting activities undertaken in the kitchen, and how many people are burning their baked goods!

Colour psychology

“I’ve always had a love for colour in my own style and in my home,’ says Prue, “so working with Omega to showcase the wonderful colour range they offer is really exciting.”

“One of the most important points for me, is how colour can make you feel. And as we spend more time in our homes it has become more vital than ever to ensure the home is a positive space for everyone – and colour plays a huge part in that.”

“I am really delighted with my new kitchen. It was tough to decide the final colour I must admit as there was so much choice, but the style, design and quality really all compliment it perfectly.”

Instagram foodie

Of course, Prue can be seen regularly in her kitchen at home via her popular Instagram page providing culinary inspiration. Most recently, she has turned to creating her own culinary how-to videos. For example, you’ll find out how to make homemade pickles, mix classic cocktails and zest citrus fruit without bitter pith. And, over the past year she has been joined by many more of us fine tuning our culinary skills.

In fact, in April 2020 45,000 new photos of banana bread were posted on Instagram alone. Plus, a poll* discovered that 86% made cakes during lockdown. This data suggesting that the kitchen is more of a sanctuary than ever before. Now that lockdown restrictions are beginning to lift, why not recreate this gorgeous roast ham? It makes for a perfect Sunday roast with your household, with cold cuts for a garden meet-up the next day!

Sir Bob Murray, founder and Chairman of Omega, added: “We’re so delighted to welcome Prue onboard to endorse our unrivalled product offer. The kitchen has always been the heart of the home, and over the lockdown period its importance has only gotten bigger.”
