Beatrix Bakes embraces the unparalleled joys of baking seasonally and creatively. It invites you to choose your own adventure - with seasonal mix-and-match alternatives given for each recipe.

Its more than 70 recipes are inspired by classics the world over, but offer new takes on these. The book teaches you that - once they get the foundations right - the truest magic will come from a willingness to play and add your own twists.

The recipes (and engaging, instructive conversation) are all beautifully photographed and are divided across eight chapters: Doughs, pastries & crusts; Tarts, pies, a crostata & a galette; The cake list; One in the hand; Yeasted bakes; Fruit-full; Creams, custards, fillings, glazes and buttercreams; and Finishing touches.

Peppered throughout are infographics, offering readers a visual (pie chart) guide to following their baking hearts, and adaptations for each recipes. For example, The Cheesecake (That You Will Love The Most) presents options for a crumb base, a bought biscuit base, no base, a sponge base and a failed cookie base! And from there, ideas for toppings from sour cream, to crumb, to fruit bits.

Beatrix Bakes will guide anyone who loves the adventure of baking to perfect their skills and break the baking mould.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'If ever a book was going to make you want to bake, this is it! So full of perfect instruction to allow everyone to shine and written in her beautifully quirky way with all the love that Nat pours into her baking.'

* Maggie Beer *
'Beatrix Bakes is not for everybody, which is a good thing. It is both serious and poetic. Every dedicated baker will benefit from the comprehensive and, dare I say, entertaining explanations of every single thing they ever wanted to know, and lots they did not even know they didn't know. I cannot wait to make my first nutty crust - and who ever knew to chill flour! The message from Nat is that patience and understanding lie behind all the seemingly effortless creations. The flavour combinations are stunning and original. For anyone who follows Beatrix Bakes on Instagram here are the secrets of all those mouth-watering pictures. I have just lifted the Walnut and olive oil shortbread bars from the oven and am waiting until they are cool enough to try. I shall challenge myself very soon to try the Tart-a-misu with its divine prune filling.'
* Stephanie Alexander *
Beatrix Bakes is more than a baking bible. It is a story about the heart of making cakes and the soul of sharing them. The Beatrix Bakes world is one of sweet spots and finding the small moments in baking that inspire and nurture us. And we are so lucky that, in this book, we can get lost in this world of sweet wonder. Natalie Paull's baking is powered by precision and adventure - in her book, she effortlessly takes the home baker on a journey of discovery, building confidence with her laws of baking, while sparking our imagination with her fun yet practical cakes, pies, tarts, cookies and buns that are, in all honestly, unequivocally joyous. * Hetty McKinnon *
In a city that reveres desserts, Beatrix has risen to grand dame. Knowing I have the secret code to her flaky, gooey treats has me dizzy with power. * Zoe Foster Blake *
