What a gem of a little book. recipes for all the British classics in easy to follow format. Ingredients generally very easy to source, method suitable even if you don't have a thermometer, nice little intro to each recipe telling it's history.
A nice little book that is a great addition to any confectioners collection.

An excellent book full of some old-time favourites. The recipe for Chocolate Nut Fudge was so easy that my 11 year old niece was able to make it with minimal supervision. I have not tried all the recipes yet but if they are half as good as the fudge I'm in for some real treats!.. it is well worth a try.

This book is great. Shame there are no pictures but I have tried several of the recipes so far and they have all worked quite well although i have lowered some of the boiling points for a more refined result i.e. chocolate caramels should be chewy i thought so I took them off at the soft ball instead of hard. All in all a good basis book as most of these kinds of sweets need practice and a personal touch.

Favourite Sweets and Toffees: Traditional Home-made Confectionery (Favourite recipes series) A delightful little book. Lovely pictures throughout but not of sweets. The recipes are easy to follow and ingredients easy to obtain. The ideal book to begin with and, whilst you could manage without one, a sugar thermometer makes things even easier.

This smaller than A5 size neat little book is brilliant! It doesn't have one single duff recipe, and there are 35 of them altogether; that's not bad going. It's tiny enough to tuck in your handbag when you go to the supermarket so you know what ingredients you want to buy, it has an easy to find recipe index at the front and a metric conversion chart at the back together with a full list of the entire series, and believe me, you'll need it because you'll be wanting to buy more of these. By the time I'd read to the end of this book I was grinning from ear to ear in anticipation of the fun I was going to have in the kitchen and then of course in the sharing and eating. My grand kids are going to love me. I personally wasn't bothered that there isn't a picture for each recipe, my childhood memories remain perfectly intact and I can see everything in my minds eye. This is an absolute 'MUST' for your cookery book collection and let's face it, for the price you really can't go wrong.
