Sue Baker's view...

This year’s Bake Off companion, a super collection of baking recipes containing 120 new recipes to whet your appetite. You’ll find celebrity bakes, the contestants’ favourites with masterclass recipes from both Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood. Including both savoury and sweet bakes there are some excellent bread and biscuit recipes as you would expect from master baker Paul Hollywood and gorgeous cakes from Mary Berry but I predict that contestant Richard’s Black Forest Chocolate Fondants will be the winner. Get Baking!
