Book Description

The fantastic first cookery book from the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2012

About the Author

John Whaite is the winner of the BBC's the Great British Bake Off, 2012. He has been a keen baker and cook since he was a tiny tot, when he would spend many hours in the kitchen with his mum.
From banking to baking, John was able to give up his mundane day job as a city commercial banker, to focus on the one thing he is truly obsessed with: food.
In 2013 he fulfilled one of his lifelong dreams and attend Le Cordon Bleu in London to study the nine-month patisserie diploma.

I love this book

Perhaps I have fallen on the bake off band wagon but after several years away from baking I have rediscovered it and this book makes it easy with a great tips section and each recipe highlights the essential equipment.

I have also recently discovered bread making and the recipes for the white loaf and wholemeal bread are foolproof. Great results and haven't bought bread for months now. Do buy this book, you won't regret it apart from maybe popping on a few ounces.

I was given this book - the first of John's in my vast collection - and I must say, I'm impressed.

Featured are both sweet and savoury recipes and differ from the norm which shows that John has taken the time to research and devise recipes which will tantilise and tempt your taste buds.

Ones I have tried to HUGE acclaim are:

Pear, Walnut & Marzipan Crumble Tart (Page 66) - use shop-bought Shortcrust Pastry, it's just as good and saves faffing. FAB for marzipan lovers!
Apricot & Pecan Herb Loaf (Page 104) - unusual, yes - but delish!
White Chocolae & Raspberry Melting Cake (Page 119) - easy to make, easier to eat .....
Chocolate & Pear Tart (Page 135) - again, use shop-bought pastry. Enables you to eat it quicker!
Lemon Curd Cake (Page 147) - a taste of Italy, particularly on a dull, dark, damp day in Blighty
Chocolate & Cassis Cake (Page 200) - uses up that Cassis bought for Christmas that you can't think what to do with (Delish)
Almond & Pear Crown Torte (Page 220) - you can leave the pears off if you wish - just ice it. It's still yummy

So if I've whetted your appetite, do give this book a go.

Note: Some of the recipes are quite long but that's due to the quite large font which is easy on the eye when reading, so don't be put off. You will turn to this lovely book, full of anecdotes and lovely photography, time and time again. I already have!

My family and I love watching The great British bake off on TV and were thrilled when John won. I asked my daughter to buy me this book for Christmas, and straight away loved reading all the little back stories of how recipes came about and what they mean to him.

Now, I seldom actually follow recipes, I just look at them for inspiration and then do my own thing. This is mainly because of all the failures I've had in the past when trying the likes of Delia and Jamie Oliver. I consider myself a fairly good cook, but at 47 years old have never mastered breadmaking by hand. I'm now proud to say I can make all kinds of delicious bread thanks to this talented young man, and I have stopped buying it from the supermarket all together.

It's not just the bread! Muffins, cakes, rough puff pastry, cookies, eclairs...........not a single failure to date. I also love that it's not all prissy and "chefy", it's proper tasty food that looks impressive, and the whole family love. Never in my life have I made so many recipes from one book. (17 so far and loads more on my to do list)

All I can say is, he has another book out now and if it doesn't find its way to me on my upcoming birthday, there may be tantrums!

I loved John on the Great British Bake Off and so had to buy his book. The book is great and I urge you to buy it - the twists that he puts on classics and the flavour combinations are fabulous. However, I do have one criticism and that is - it is a recipe book and there aren't enough pictures of the finished recipes. I know, crazy right? (Lorraine Pascal take note too...) There are plenty of pictures of the lovely John and I don't necessarily want less of these but I would like to see how he imagines his recipes turning out. I wouldn't mind so much but there are pictures of some things that are quite self-explanatory to anyone who watched GBBO but then there isn't a picture of, for example, Baci Di Dama. Does anyone with a rudimentary knowledge of patisserie/home baking know what they are supposed to look like? There are pictures of Madeleines, Croquembouche, Macarons and Cheesecake and plenty of the others but no pictures of Gateau Affogato, Galettes des Rois or Baklava Millefeuille!! I buy books to learn and create - I don't want to have to google an image of something that the editor could have simply had photographed and put in the book. I want to know what John Whaites's Affogato or Baci di Damas look like in comparison to the google image not instead of. Less victoria sponge photos in the next book and more Joconde sponge and pithivier pics please!
Rant over.
Seriously, buy this book for all the great recipes with pictures and the sheer inspiration of all his work - the recipes are written in such a way that it is easy for you to create the marvellous confections too. I truly hope that there are more books to come - I will gladly buy them all!

What mood are you in?? The book is full of original flavors and ideas. After a read through it's apparent that the book is very aptly named, John Whaite Bakes: Recipes for Every Day and Every Mood, as there are plenty of recipes to either lift one out of a bad mood or relax after a hard day and so on...

Chapters include an Introduction; Baker's Notes; All-Important Armoury; Simple Essentials; Seeking Sweet Solace; Calming a Bag of Nerves; The Mood for Food and Love; Edible Nirvana; Memoirs of a Baker; Simple Speedy Solutions; Deepest Darkest Desires; The Artist Within; and Happy Hour

So, the only question is where to start? I suppose it will depend on what mood I am in....
Here is a list of recipes I can't wait to try out. They are mostly sweet, but there are a nice amount of savory recipes in the book too.

Overnight Rustic Loaf
Midnight Blues Tart
Plait of Worries Loaf
Apricot and White Chocolate Flapjacks
Coconut and Lemon Bakewell
Italian Feeding Frenzy Focaccia
Eastern Sweet Spring Rolls
Plum and Pinenut Loaf Cake
White Chocolate and Raspberry Melting Cake
Tropical Sponge Pudding
Lemon and Poppy Seed Scones
Strawberry and Custard Shortbreads
Bakewell Muffins
Sunflower Seed Soda Bread
Mocha Choca Madeleines with Chocolate Dipping Sauce
Individual Apple Strudels
Spiced Sticky Toffee Pudding
Cherry Brandy and Brazil Nut Brownies
& all 8 cocktails

What are you going to bake first?? This review is based on my first impressions of the book and as a cook book collector I am very impressed with how it's written and the style is very inviting! As I bake from the book I will have all intentions of updating this review.
