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!

Synopsis

Great British Bake off: Christmas by Lizzie Kamenetzky

Christmas is a time of friends and family. Of anticipation and excitement. Of good times - and of course, great food. This book celebrates everything surrounding Christmas with 100 delicious bakes for the festive season, as well as dishes for the big day itself. Whip up tempting Christmas nibbles like Mini Potato Farls with Smoked Salmon, or Parmesan Palmiers, perfect for a party. Spice up your home - and get the kids involved too - with Gingerbread Tree Ornaments and a Cinnamon Christmas Wreath. And of course, there are plenty of delicious ideas for what to do with all those leftovers. Each chapter also includes spectacular recipes from Bake Off finalists, and Mary and Paul reveal the secrets to those classic Christmas dishes - whether it's Paul's perfect mince pies or Mary's ultimate Christmas pudding. Packed with everything from edible decorations and delicious gifts to party dishes and showstopping centrepieces, this book is the perfect Christmas companion.

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.
