World's Best Cakes: 250 great cakes from Raspberry&hellip by Marco Pierre White
20 of 20 people found the following review helpful
The book is a Masterclass in baking I own many baking books and, over the past year, I have reviewed quite a few books on cakes and baking. All I can say is GET THIS BOOK ON YOUR CHRISTMAS LIST.

Roger Pizey takes you through all the Basic Techniques you will need. shown in step by step pictures. Every recipe is accompanied by stunning photographs, often two for each bake, the whole cake and a slice, or a variation e.g. Victoria Sponge and Fairy Cakes.

The recipes themselves are clearly laid out with the ingredients and each instruction in the process clearly numbered. There is also a paragraph about the recipe and some recipes have variations too.

Tales From The Kitchen Shed: English Teatime Treat&hellip by Sarah James
I own many cookbooks and baking books, but Sarah has managed to create a collection which includes the basics of home baking but also some recipes that I have never seen in any other baking book. I made the Oat Biscuits from English Tea Time Treats and they were so simple to make, very versatile and have the quality and crunch of the best of artisan bakery biscuits. Highly recommended.
The Crossing Places: A Ruth Galloway Investigation by Elly Griffiths
I had read one of the later Ruth Galloway novels and enjoyed it so much I decided to go back and start at the beginning. The mixture of archaeology and police procedural with a bit of clandestine romance thrown in is a heady mixture. The cast of characters are well written and run through into the later novels. I'll be downloading my next Ruth Galloway Investigation very soon.
