Product Description

Review

One of the most innovative of our modern bakers (Nigel Slater Observer Food Monthly)

Best of the batch . . . Gellatly's sourdough is without peer in London (Independent)

With Justin the force is strong and the crumb is good (Fergus Henderson)

I have always loved eating his bread and cakes, and his the doughnuts are the best in the world. Fabulous book (Angela Hartnett)

Having always hugely enjoyed eating the seemingly endless, singular delights of this talented and very good baker, it is a boon and a half to know at last how Justin makes these so very, very delicious things (Jeremy Lee)

Whether it's healthy granola clusters for breakfast, an afternoon slice of Earl Grey and honey loaf or a decadent dessert of sticky banana pudding, this is as good as no-nonsense baking books get (Crumbs)

About the Author

Head Baker and Pastry Chef at St John for twelve years, Justin created the St John Bakery and restaurants' legendary sourdough bread and doughnuts, and has just opened a new bakery, Bread Ahead, in Borough Market. Justin Gellatly is the co-author, with Fergus Henderson, of Beyond Nose to Tail: A Kind of British Cooking.

There have been many baking books published over the last five years - some blazing a trail, but most jumping on a bandwagon. The problem with the superficially easy British baking tradition is that anyone can make an edible cake badly. To achieve perfection requires a good understanding of your oven, the chemistry of baking, the varying qualities of ingredients, and the discipline to adhere to a recipe. It is these things that the really good baking books address - they teach you how to think like a professional. And that is one reason why this book is special - almost without trying the author passes on an incredible amount of his expertise. Moreover, although many of the recipes are for the 'classics' of British baking, they usually have some added value that makes them a unique interpretation. And by 'interpretation' I mean a well-thought-out sophistication, not pink icing on a ginger nut! As you will see if you buy the book, this approach offers an excellent way to extend your repertoire and to learn how to successfully vary recipes.

So, what else do you get for your money? About 150 recipes organised into the following chapters: Breakfast, Baking and Bread, Savoury Baking, Cakes and Teatime Treats, Biscuits, Doughnuts, Warm to Hot Puddings, Cold Puddings, Ice Cream, The Store Cupboard. The Store Cupboard chapter is not the usual list of obvious supermarket fare, but includes several recipes for making your own pickles, jams, and so on. Generally, the recipes in this book are well organised and comprehensive. As well as fully detailed instructions, there is a separate list containing: quantities, suitability for freezing, prep. and cooking times, and the list of ingredients. Measures are metric and standard spoons.

Justin's doughnuts may be renowned, but this book is about so much more than those tasty treats

The book is broken down into the following categories, with a few examples:

Breakfast (pikelets; granola clusters; William's spud fry; the Full Monty soufflé; breakfast bun scrolls...)
Baking with bread (pumpkin seed bread; classic brioche; lardy cake; corn bread; sour dough; rye and malt sourdough...)
Savoury baking (truffle, cheese and potato pie; anchovy twists and cheese straws; sweet onion and fine herb tart...)
Cakes and teatime treats (Early Grey and honey loaf, croquembouche; bomber command buns; Devonshire splits...)
Biscuits (chocolate and oat snaps; the perfect dunking biscuit; the mega milky malt; coconut and cardamom biscuits...)
Doughnuts (the dough recipe; caramel custard and salted honeycomb sprinkle; Seville orange with ginger snap sprinkle...)
Warm to hot puddings (peach and Amaretto cobbler; prune armagnac and almond pudding; sticky banana pudding...)
Cold puddings (chocolate terrine; chocolate caramel brandy creams; chocolate pots; custard tart, chocolate brownie...)
Ice-cream (vanilla; blackberry and crème fraiche; orange and cardamom; brown sugars and hazelnut...)
The store cupboard (bread and butter pickles; pickled beetroot; tomato and chilli chutney; pumpkin seed oil...)

I've tried several doughnut recipes, always cursing them when the inevitable leaden ball thumps onto my board. These are proved for 24 hours however, resulting in amazing flavour, and a lightness that just cannot be described. Check out the photos on my site if you'd like to see the doughnut recipe for yourself

Lovely book, with well written recipes that work. "Old-fashioned" treats like the ginger cake and earl grey tea cake, but also recipes for Gellatly's famouos doughnuts (still haven't dared try that one) and sourdough. I am going to have fun baking my way through the rest of this one, a must-have for those who are fan of Gellatly's Bread Ahead and of St John Restaurant and their style of British food.

If you like food, you'll love this. Easily one of my favourite, most-used recipe books - every time I flick through the pages I want to make something, immediately. Having tried a third of these already I can safely say that the results are, as one would expect, consistently wonderful. Filled with photographs as beautiful as the recipes themselves, Bread, Cake, Doughnut, Pudding easily avoids the trap of 'style over substance' fodder and is perfect for the most novice to experienced of cooks.
