This review is from: British Baking (Hardcover)
I'll often pop into the Peyton and Byrne bakery at St Pancras on my way home from London and I have always said the cakes there - both the taste and the presentation are head and shoulders above your other trendy bakeries. I've been waiting for this book for a long time!
Peyton and Byrne is different because quite simply, its British. Unlike American style bakeries and cook books (which I also love by the way) the recipes are slightly more traditional and all about the quality/ ingredients. Its like the bero cook book for cool kids!!!!
The photos are gorgeous, as is the presentation of the whole book. I also really like how each recipe states how long the finished product will keep for.
My favourite feature of the book is that he refers to Fairy Cakes - not Cup Cakes - and having bought them and baked them, they taste and look totally delicious.
Buy the book, you wont be disappointed!
