Saku Chandrasekara Biography – Saku Chandrasekara Wiki
Saku Chandrasekara is a contestant on the 14th series of The Great British Bake Off on Channel 4. An intelligence analyst from Herefordshire, Sri Lankan-born Saku places the traditional flavours of her heritage at the heart of her baking – particularly the curry spices, which she claims make for the best pie fillings, while liberal sprinklings of cinnamon, cardamom and nutmeg find their way into her sweeter bakes.
At her family home in Sri Lanka, Saku didn’t have an oven until the age of 18. She turned to baking only when she moved with her husband to the UK in 2003. It truly blossomed when she became a mother – rustling up treats for her children’s lunchboxes by replicating the snacks she saw in the supermarket. A self-taught, she is now a dab hand with a whisk and relishes using her homegrown ingredients from her pride and joy – her vegetable patch.

“Not in a million years did I think I would be selected to go into the Bake Off tent,” said Saku. “It was a tiny dream by the time I submitted my application, which I thought would never come true. When I had the phone call, I couldn’t believe my ears and I felt like I was going to explode.”
On her strengths and weaknesses, she said: “I think the passion to learn new things, creativity and never give up are my main strengths. I am a messy baker and I am hard on myself when bakes go wrong, which I think are my weaknesses.”
