  • Making Bread Together

    Muesli bread I love a good baking book and even more so if I actually bake from it ….

  • The Handmade Loaf by Dan Lepard

    The Handmade Loaf by Dan Lepard is 10 years old this week Contemporary European Recipes for the Home Baker Written and photographed by Dan Lepard     Our In house baker Vanessa Kimbell explains why this book is her favourite bread making book of all time. The Handmade Loaf is perhaps the single most influential bread making book of modern times. I bought The Handmade Loaf when it came out in 2004.  The slightly battered edges of my book give a good indication that I come back to it again and again. I love it...

  • Bread Revolution by Duncan Glendinning and Patrick Ryan

    Bread Revolution by the award-winning bakers Duncan Glendinning and Patrick Ryan is an engaging and accessible bread-baking book for beginners with plenty of interesting and unusual bread recipes Right from the moment you look at the cover of Bread Revolution the tone is set.

  • The Pocket Bakery by Rose Prince

    We are delighted to have a limited number of signed Pocket Bakery books. Last year Vanessa, our in house baker, interviewed Rose Prince about her pocket bakery. Rose explained that what started as a means of getting her children to earn pocket money became a powerful bridge between school and work for her son Jack.  You can't help admiring Rose as you read her frank approach to how baking can not only bring a community together, but keep a family communicating through difficult times. There are some people who would rather not share their struggles with the world, but...

  • Jane Mason - The Book of Buns

    I phoned Mexico about midday to chat to Jane Mason about her Book of Buns.  There was no answer, but a text arrived a few moments later.  It’s 6am here...can I call you in a bit? Despite being mortified at waking Jane up I was delighted to chat to her about an hour later about her fabulous book and how she came to be the founder of Bread Angels, a network of people up and down the land running their very own home baking business called Bread Angels.  Jane explained that she found herself at a crossroads and asked...

  • Review - The Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook

    - Trade secrets from a successful London bakery specialising in American baking Recipes for colourful cupcakes, pies, muffins and layer cakes.
