Product description


The visceral appeal of her sourdough variations (which run to 40 pages), duck and pork pie or sweet olive oil bread with grapes is enough to turn any kitchen into a Pocket Bakery (Christopher Hirst THE INDEPENDENT)

I love a recipe that does what it says on the tin, and Rose's scrumptious soda bread certainly did that. What's more, it went down a storm in the office and all with very little exertion on my part. I'm looking forward to working my way through the rest of her lovely book over the coming weeks (www.sainsburysmagazine.co.uk)

Written in the same no-nonsense, reassuring tone of her demos, the recipes are delicious and easy to follow... a cookery book with a heart. (THE LADY)

Rose Prince started The Pocket Bakery in her home kitchen to help her children earn their pocket money, and it's grown into a thriving business. This book is a lovely guide to making all sorts of bread, pastries, cakes and biscuits. (CHOICE)

Rose tells the story and shares the recipes from the home business she set up to help her children earn pocket money, and gain skills and confidence. There are great bread and pastry recipes, instructions on making your own sourdough starter and some showstopper cakes, including a tiramisu roulade to die for. (Sally Hughes BBC GOOD FOOD MAGAZINE)

In 2010, Rose Prince, along with daughter Lara and son Jack, began opening up her Battersea home every Saturday morning to sell freshly made bread. Today, it is a thriving local bakery that produces artisan bakes from brioche loaves in flowerpots to teatime cakes and biscuits. This beautifully designed book shares over 100 of the family's trusted recipes with easy-to-follow techniques and trade secrets so young and old bakers alike can get fantastic results (CAKES & SUGARCRAFT)

The Pocket Bakery amalgamates all of the family's favourite baking recipes as well as easy-to-follow techniques and tips. With step-by-step illustrations, this book is ideal for budding bakers and bread-makers (FOOD & WINE MAGAZINE)

With its tasteful blue cloth cover and Laura Hynd's wonderfully restrained photography, this is a book aimed at getting the whole family involved in baking at home, and the 100 recipes cover a range of simple breads, cakes and biscuits guaranteed to bring out the aspiring baker in you. (CRUMBS)
