5.0 out of 5 stars FANTASTIC!, 14 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Great British Bakes: Forgotten treasures for modern bakers (Hardcover)
Right! Anyone interested in this book, I URGE you to order it, especially if you also have an interest in history! It's a stunner, and I am going to have a lot of fun baking from it! It's quite chunky (352 pages) and packed with recipes from Tudor times to WWII. Mary-Anne has included many recipes from old manuscripts, some have a photo of the original, but using language, ingredients and modern methods. It's quite clear she has done a LOT of research, and she hasn't allowed anyone to rush her quite rightly, and boy does it show! The book is divided into Large Cakes, Biscuits, Gingerbread, Pastry, Puddings, Small Cakes, Yeast and Bits and Bobs. Just one of those chapters Gingerbread is 18 pages long and has 7 different recipes plus variations - I love gingerbread so can't wait to have a go! Every recipe in the book has a preamble in Mary-Anne's distinctive style, you can almost hear her speaking to you, and very clear concise instructions. I put this one on my wish list ages ago, and have been eagerly awaiting its arrival ever since, and it does not disappoint. It's a cracker! In my humble opinion the best book to have come from the Bake Off so far.
