Jo Wheatley has loved baking since she was a child. Last year she watched the BBC's The Great British Bake Off and decided to enter. She feels incredibly proud that not only did she make it onto the programme, but she also went on to win against some amazing bakers. Since winning The Great British Bake Off, Jo has set up a small cookery school from her home in Essex.
Jo Wheatley, winner of the Great British Bake Off 2011, shares a new collection of the hearty food she brought her three hungry boys up on, the fool proof recipes handed down to her by her Nan, and the treats she delights her extended family and friends with. All of the 100 recipes featured have been taste tested and enjoyed by generations of Jo's family, and are now ready to be enjoyed by yours. Easy recipes for little ones, tasty pies and tarts, delicious pastries and sumptuous cakes all fill the pages of Family Baking, and all will make you want to roll up your sleeves and turn on the oven. Jo's recipes are refreshingly simple and honest, and all made regularly for her family. From a classic focaccia, to delicious chocolate and honeycomb bars, perfect American pancakes and a spectacular croquembouche, Family Baking will fill your home with fantastic homemade food all year round.
June 2013 Food and Drink Book of the Month. The 2011 Bakeoff Winner, Jo Wheatley has collected together the thoughts, the recipes, and the help that will spur on anyone wanting to get serious about baking. She’s equally passionate about baking and its role in family life. By involving children, teaching them baking skills and cooking for them shows love and attention, something that all too many children lack. She has so many happy memories of family get-togethers, treats made for parties, cakes made for the happiness of all that her enthusiasm spills from the page, it would be a reader of steel who didn’t bake a cake or a biscuit after reading this. And there’s a recipe for real, homemade custard creams among all the other sweet – and savoury treats she has to offer.
