Wooden spoons at the ready for Linda Collister's "The Great British Book of Baking". This is the official book to accompany the hit BBC2 TV series "The Great British Bake-off", presented by Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc. This book takes us on a tour of the very best in baking our nation has to offer - from Eccles cakes to Cornish pasties, Chelsea buns to Scottish gingerbread. With trips to notable landmarks from baking history - Melton Mowbray and Sandwich among the more famous, as well as locally loved secrets from towns and villages around the country - the book highlights the importance of baking as part of our national heritage. Over 120 recipes, as well as numerous adaptations and suggestions, cover the whole range of baking skills from sweet jam tarts to savoury game pie. These are recipes that have been passed through the generations, securing themselves as baking classics, and include recipes from the contestants of "The Great British Bake Off". Whether you want to try your hand at the delicate art of petticoat tails shortbread or dish up a hearty steak pie to a hungry family, you will be looking between the pages of "The Great British Book" of Baking time and time again, as Linda Collister has brought together the very best recipes from around the British Isles. Linda Collister has written over twenty-five books, having trained at the Cordon Bleu, then La Varenne in Paris. Sheila Keating is a food writer and author, with a special interest in the provenance of British food.
