Easy-To-Make Doughnuts: 50 Delectable Recipes for &hellip by Mowie Kay
Mowie Kay is a professional food photographer, but unlike a lot of his contemporaries, he is also an accomplished baker. Speaking as someone who is still finding her feet and learning about food photography, his work is quite inspirational.

The recipes themselves however, are separated into sections based on various holidays or events such as All Occasions, Elegant, Children’s Party, Weddings etc with appropriate flavours… Read more
