From the Inside Flap
We are a nation of bakers. Baking is steeped in our history, class system and geography. What is more Scottish than shortbread? More Cornish than a pasty? More Welsh than Bara Brith? More traditional than a pie?
The Great British Book of Baking looks into our long and enviable baking heritage and brings together over 120 of the very best recipes from around the British Isles.
Whether your weakness is a 4 o'clock biscuit dunked in your tea, a slab of rich chocolate cake or warm bread fresh from the oven, you'll find a recipe to satisfy your every craving in this book.
Learn how to make a traditional raised pork pie, perfect your flaky pastry skills for the ultimate Eccles cake and discover how the baking fashions and trends of Great Britain developed throughout the centuries as people moved around the globe.
With recipes for sweet and savoury tarts and flans, homely puddings and hearty pies, delicate slices, teatime treats and breads and cakes for every occasion, this truly is the book of great British baking.
