'The book I've taken to most this season is by the Irish Nigella (except prettier, blonde and a better cook), Rachel Allen. Her BAKE is simply and engagingly written: one irresistible thing after another'
Melanie McDonagh, Evening Standard

'As wholesome and attractive as its charming author, (!) it is well thought out and accessibly written, with the emphasis on relaxed family meals. (!) Ideal for anyone who needs to cook on a regular basis but hasn't much experience.'
