This is a foolproof book on how to bake!
on 1 September 2011
I'm not very fond of 'reality' type TV programmes and do my best to avoid them. But my wife and I have enjoyed this series on baking despite it being a reality show.
So, the TV programme is pretty good (for a reality show!), but is the book any good?
Even if you've not seen the TV programme we heartily recommend this book. We were really impressed with three things. Firstly the quality of the book, particularly the photography (and the typography) is first class and beautifully produced. Secondly, the recipes are well written out and extremely easy to follow, which means results are guaranteed if you follow them properly. Finally the recipes are scrumptiously delicious! The only downside is that the recipes are very moreish, which is not good for the waistline.
We do collect cook books and we think this is one of the best we've seen on how to bake, and get great results. Thanks to Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, who both inspire and give some great ideas on how to be a master baker, we think we may have found our 'ultimate' baking book!! We highly recommend it to those who aspire to bake... and who want to get top class results without the fear of failure!
