You know when you have a cookery book that's covered in splashes, splodges and scribbles because it's so brilliant? Well this is one of them.
This paperback version was bought for a friend and she's already tried the old British Rail Gingerbread, which is a real stunner.
There's also an authentic New York bagel recipe that I've used many times.
Each recipe comes with a delightful little back story which tells of its origins, the travels of the authors and the bread making enthusiasts that they met.
