GREAT BRITISH BAKE-OFF: Get Baking for Friends and Family

PRUE LEITH & PAUL HOLLYWOOD    Book Number: 85957    Product format: Hardback

We all love to watch Bake-Off, but how many of us can make the grade with a doughy pinny and sticky fingers in the kitchen? The recipes in this book, supplied by the judges Prue Leith and Paul Hollywood and also by the Bake-Off contestants themselves, are all geared to combine the wow-factor with seriously do-able methods and techniques. In "Meet the Bakers" we get to know a London banker, full-time parents, a blood courier, a couple of project managers and a retired air steward, among others. From a variety of cultures and backgrounds, they all share a consuming passion for baking. Six chapters cover each type of bake, while basics such as shortcrust pastry or crème patisserie are collected together at the back, together with tips and techniques. Cakes are up first, with a Celebration Hot Chocolate Birthday Cake and a beautiful Gateau Vert with Pistachio Marzipan - Claude Monet's favourite cake and featured as a Judge's Recipe. Biscuits and Traybakes range from Salter Peanut Millionaire Shortbread to melt-in-the-mouth Coffee and Amaretto Kisses, not forgetting staples like Chocolate Chip Granola Cookies. Breads include a few substantial family mealtime specials such as Spiced Lamb Lahmacun, a Turkish-style pizza. Puds and Desserts feature a profusion of delectable creations from Pina Colada Roulade, Raspberry Blancmange and Apricot Meringue Torte to Banana Toffee Sponge and Custard. Beautifully presented, the book would make a lovely gift. 320pp, lavishly photographed in colour. 7½" x 10".
