Found: The Great British Bake Off

This morning I thought I’d suggest a gift idea for an avid baker in your life, fan of the recent Great British Bake Off series or *ahem*, perhaps yourself!

I’m an absolute sucker for cookery books, particularly of the baking variety and as I didn’t watch the series, I wondered if any of you had bought the book or thought the recipes might be worth trying?

I have to say, I’m more than a little bit in awe of the macaroons pictured above – seriously pretty presentation!

I think the problem with most cook books is that there is so much duplication of recipies, particularly when you narrow things down to ‘baking’ for example. I already make a good lemon drizzle, victoria sponge and carrot cake, so do I need this book in my life?

Do tell readers!


PS, Fan of food? So is Florence ;) Watch out tomorrow for a gorgeous recipe coming your way in Friday Food.

PPS. In case, you’re wondering, this is post 2 for the day. Come back later for number 3, a meaty number you can get your teeth into the comments section for ;)
