Product Description

About the Author

Jessica Simmons writes for WI Life, membership magazine for the Women's Institute. Jessica grew up in Lincolnshire and has fond memories of baking with her grandma as a little girl which inspired a growing fascination into the origins of traditional and regional British recipes - many discovered in the archives of the Women's Institute. When she's not eating cake in the name of research, Jessica writes for various food and consumer magazines, specialising in the history of the WI and its relationship with food throughout the last century. Jessica is a member of Finchley WI and lives in London with her partner Laurence.

The WI is a British Institution for good reason, it's members have spent years perfecting almost all aspects of cooking and therefore this set of recipes drawn from the WI archives is a delicious mix of foods you would eat at high tea.

The book is split into four sections - Savoury Teatime Treats, Cakes and Special Occasions, Traditional and Regional Favourites and Biscuits and Bakes. All section have clearly written, easy to follow recipes - many illustrated with scrumptious photos of the end product.

Here I'll add a list of all the recipes included - a small p after the name indicates that there is a photograph of the recipe in the book.

If your looking for a little gift for someone that loves baking this is it, it's full of great ideas for the classics but also some slightly different cakes, it's ideal for someone that already has lots of baking books as it has different recipes in it that the others does not
