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 like the layout organising the bakes into moods but it really could have done with a couple of pages at the back indexing the recipes into categories so you could find them a bit quicker. For example there are bread recipes in almost every section so unless you can remember the exact name of the recipe to look it up in the index it can be a frustrating task to flip through the book to find it again, a list of all the bread recipes and their page numbers would have been great.
Of course, you can dress it up all you want, are the recipes good? Yes! (The white chocolate and raspberry sponge - i will say no more.) A big plus for me is that you don't need a list of unusual ingredients the length of your arm. Most of them are usual things found in your cupboard - no need to buy something just to use a pinch of it!
Now, back to the kitchen!
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves to bake.
