Having eaten marvelous cakes in a Brighton cafe, I bought this book in the hope that I could recreate the unusual flavors such as plum and chilli. Sure enough, this book contained some of the recipes I was looking for and I wasted no time in trying them out. Some are stunning but some just don't seem to work! Quantities can be odd indeed; the little lamb pie filling could never fit in the pastry cases and the strawberry rose cake is gorgeous but seems almost commercial in size. It took twice as long to bake as the time stated. The pistachio cup cakes look delicious but there is no quantity given for the nuts in the ingredients list - I'll have to guess. Having said this, the candied orange cake was fantastic and the ham hock and pea pies are a triumph. This is a beautiful book with many flaws but I can't remember the last time I actually cooked so many recipes from one book and was still inspired to try more.

What a great cook book! Agree with previous review - scratch and sniff pages shoud be mandatory with Brighton Bakes! I was hungry just looking at pictures :) what I like a lot about this book is I want to read it from start to finish, which is unusual .... Normally you flick through and select option that catches your eye. Also love the Brighton connection and jess comes across as too cool for school! (In a good way!) totally recommend !

Stunning photography and lovely descriptions accompany these great new recipes. Jessica Haggerty is a bright new talent in the world of cookery writing, I feel newly inspired to get in the kitchen and will be eagerly looking out for her next collection

i'm fairly new to the world of cooking, although i have been eating for some years now... i've been building up a collection of books to help me master this strange new hobby, and as i live in Brighton, i saw this and thought it'd be worth a look.

and wow! i'm not disappointed!!! the book is beautiful to look at, with some fantastic pictures that not only make the food look completely delicious, but also give a real flavour of Brighton (intentional pun alert!). the books laid out by season, which is pretty handy for making sure you're using 'in season' ingredients. Jessica also uses a lot of local suppliers & produce, which is a really nice touch i think.

the recipes themselves are awesome... lots of cakes & sweet dishes (great for me and my probably too sweet tooth!), but nicely balanced with some cracking savoury dishes (ham hock & pea pie my personal favorite!). i also like that some recipes are easy, and some seem a little more complicated. for a novice like me, it's good to be successful while still being able to move on to more tricky once my confidence grows!

Jessica's one cool cookie. i love her style, and very much hope to see more from her in the future... half hour BBC2 slot methinks!

overall, i thoroughly recommend this book!

Not only is this a beautiful book to look at and a lovely read, but I can attest that the recipes are fabulous. Having baked my daughter a delicious birthday cake from it, I can foresee many further successful dishes and treats ahead. Try it for yourself..you will not be disappointed!!
