LoveReading View on A Passion for Baking

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.
