Sacha: Totally the Talent
Sacha - The Talent. Don't be fooled by his model looks and 'posh' English accent... he's cheeky. Cheeky as hell. And at times very very smutty... and ignore the exotic sounding name and Mediterranean looks, Sacha was born in Bristol and brought up in rural Worcestershire in the English countryside.
His family owned and ran a chain of bakeries, so Sacha grew up surrounded by flour, sugar and all manner of sticky stuff - as well as two sisters and a brother.
Sacha has built an audience around the world cooking in his home. Creating dishes ranging from low-cal soups and snacks to far more calorific main dishes and bakes. Among them his show-stopping six-tier Rainbow Cake coated in Marshmallow fluff and his Caramel Apple Roses dessert which looks like a bouquet of freshly opened blooms. Sacha makes even recipes like those seem effortless and takes you with him step by step in a punchy, friendly fashion.
Sacha’s heart, though, lies with the simpler comfort foods like his crowd pleasing sticky toffee pudding, millionaire shortbread or fun halloween cupcakes. Check them out on our Recipes page!
Now Sacha isn't a full-time chef - in fact he works in the financial-technology sector. But like everyone he's gotta eat. But more than that he's a passionate foodie...and to help beat his love of pies (and maintain his trim waistline) he's overcome his addiction by becoming a pusher (or more literally... a Feeder!)

Sydney: The REAL star (RIP)
If you've seen a single one of our videos, you'll likely have seen Sydney... her cheeky cameos became a favourite of ours, and we know - because you told us - she was a favourite with you too.
She was never more than a few feet away from us as we filmed. In fact at all times. But after a short illness she left us to chase squirrels for eternity.
Sydney was just shy of 14 years old - which is incredible for a Golden Retriever. Their usual life span is nearer 11. She was spritely and smiley right to the end. When she decided it was time, she left us without pain snuggled on the floor in our arms - peacefully and with great dignity.
She's left a big hole in our household and an even bigger hole in our hearts.
RIP Sydney - gone, but never forgotten
Cobie: Dog of Mischief
No dog could ever replace Sydney and we never intended to make room in our lives for another. How could we?!
Then word got to us of a puppy needing a loving home. She - like Syd - was also a golden retriever. So we reluctantly met Cobie (though she didn't have a name at that stage).
She'd been adopted from her litter when she was 8 weeks old. But her new owners couldn't cope and for whatever reason didn't take to her, so gave her back to the breeder just weeks later.
She was timid, not at all smiley (retriever pups usually are) and very withdrawn when we met her. But after a few minutes in Minion's arms - comfortable, safe and warm - her little tail started to wag and she burrowed even further into his hug, and instantly snuggled her way into our hearts.
She came home with us a few days later, and we named her after Cobie Smulders - the actress in How I met your Mother & The Avengers movies. Among other names we considered was Loki - the god of Mischief. So that's why she's affectionately known as Cobie - The DOG of mischief.
Minion: Man of Mystery
Minion's identity is shrouded in mystery. Some say deliberately!
Rumour has it he's a jewel thief; international spy; on witness relocation; the hot guy playing 'Mr Grey' in 'Fifty Shades' or conversely is so ugly that his mere reflection could shatter glass and scare the vulnerable.
In fact none of this is true (although that last one is a little true!)
Now we could tell you the truth - but then we'd have to shred you. Sorry. We don't make the rules!!
What we can tell you about Minion, however, is that he's effectively the producer, cameraman, editor, webmaster, food researcher (and consumer!), photographer and ... erm...
... the minion!
