This is not your average `baking' book as you might understand it. It is not just cakes, pies, biscuits etc as one might reasonably expect. By baking Mr Hix means just about everything which you can put in the oven and bake. Hence, in addition to what you may have anticipated, there are also useful sections on fish, meat and vegetables.

The photography of the finished products is excellent and certainly enough to get your taste buds watering. Many of the recipes are very appealing.

The list of ingredients for all the recipes is very clearly set out and includes the number of people which the dish should be expected to serve. The methodology is easy to follow and the photographs are a helpful guide to what you should be aiming for. Some of the recipes are aimed at particular occasions whilst others are quite unusual - how about either Roasted Sea Bream with Oyster Stuffing and Fennel Hollandaise or Pheasant Biryani for something a little out of the ordinary! Others such as Garibaldi Biscuits or Hedgerow Pie are much more traditional. There are also some nice twists on traditional recipes such as Mutton Shepherd's Pie Potatoes or Portuguese Baked Breakfast Eggs.

Whilst this book goes well beyond the usual meaning of Baking, it is a delicious and delightful addition to any foodie's bookshelf. There are some straight forward recipes here, so that even the inexperienced cook will find enough to tackle. As long as you realise that you are not buying a traditional baking book you will be in for a treat!
