Matt Adlard, 26 years old baking genius known as “Topless Baker” has gained substantial attention on social media with 253k followers on Instagram. ‘Topless Baker’, an online cooking youtube channel become the talk of the town among the youths whose fan base has grown exponentially since he launched less than a year ago. Adlard was grown up in a small town named Norwich in England where he helped his parents to run their restaurant.
After pursuing his graduation from the University of Birmingham, he moved to London to pursue a career in marketing and he realized that this is not his cup of tea and began expanding his cooking repertoire. As a son of former Michelin star chef David Adlard, cooking has always been a passion for him.
Matt prepares everything from sweet treats to classic home recipes and draws in crowds from across the world, with his live streams on Facebook and weekly tutorials on YouTube engaging beginner and home cooks alike. When Matt told his girlfriend that he wanted to open a youtube channel without a shirt on, his girlfriend laughed out loud and took his idea as a matter of fun and prank for his friends, as they were well aware that how bored Adlard was with his routine job. But the only thing laughable about Topless Baker a year after its launch is the insane success it’s had since its beginning.
After practicing for a year, he entered a bake-off competition with his lemon tart recipe and surprisingly, he was the winner. His colleague suggested him to start a naked baking blog as he was fond of exercise. Both interests of exercising and baking totally worked out for him.
Being the cooking expertise in the gene, he becomes an internet sensation and even Gordon James Ramsay Jr. a reality television personality followed him on Instagram.
