Look out Delia, sexy baking is here!
on 29 July 2000
I bought this book because I love the brownies, but it is packed with so much more. It made me realise just how staid and stuffy most baking books are. Like most cookbooks these days it is has lots of excellent food photography BUT it also has figures ski-ing down the whipped cream and Cowboys rounding up cup cakes, not to mention what looks like most of the author's family and friends. The real test of any cookbook is in the baking: my favourites so far Coconut Cream Pie (a heavenly fluffy creamy thing, like nothing I've ever tasted before), Peanut Butter Brownies (take the idea of 'rich' food to another level) and Caramelised Onion Tarts (yes there are some savoury recipes too, but they're at the back!) I can't wait to try some more. So far I've found all the recipes really easy to follow, and the results have given me the confidence to even give the Cinnamon Buns a try, (I always find anything with yeast in a bit scary), if they taste as good as they look in the picture I'm on my way to heaven.
