Fresh out of baking college, Tom (33) won Baker Of the Year and his signature sourdough has won Organic Loaf of the Year 9 times in the last 10 years. Last year Henry (24) left his role as Head Chef of the award winning Coach & Horses in Clerkenwell to face a new challenge, buying the traditional butchers next door to Tom's bakery. Now the two work and cook side by side, professionally and domestically, creating every element of a meal; from the bun to the burgers and even the homemade pickles that top them off.
