Emma Bridgewater's cheerfully distinctive kitchen pottery - manufactured and traditionally hand-decorated in the Staffordshire Potteries, just as it would have been 200 years ago - has found its way onto the dresser shelves and kitchen tables of homes all over Britain and beyond.

Her designs are jaunty, friendly, sometimes quietly funny. They call to mind childhood picnics, summer gardens and busy kitchens, with their motifs of Sweet Peas and Figs or bold calligraphic patterns such as Toast & Marmalade. Above all the name Emma Bridgewater suggests home and welcome.

This book combines beautiful photographs of Emma's life and designs with a collection of warm stories of her family, along with the inspirations for and characters involved in the success of this particularly English brand.

MEDIA REVIEWS
In these 'stories', Emma shares her passions and with them comes a satisfying feeling of wellbeing. * The Good Book Guide *
Emma Bridgewater, queen of kitchenware, proves herself queen of the memoir too. As attractive, comforting and encouraging as her products, this book is similarly innocent of tweeness or cloying cosiness. The crunch of good toast and the bitter sweetness of good marmalade in fact. * Stephen Fry *
Emma Bridgewater's captivating recipe for a happy family life: food, passion, work, love. * Meg Rosoff *
It's the kind of beautiful, recipe-packed book you'd buy to give to your mother-in-law and end up keeping for yourself. * Evening Standard *
What a great read - a true British inspiration story - I loved it! * Cath Kidston *
[Toast & Marmalade] is a glossy scrapbook of family recipes and childhood memories of camping trips or picnics that shimmer in the late afternoon sun. * Daily Express *
Toast & Marmalade is a heartwarming, sumptuously presented memoir-cum-commemoration of the Emma Bridgewater brand. * You Magazine *
The word 'Toast' triggers a bat's squeak of association in the brain, conjuring that endearing autobiography by Nigel Slater, 'artistic' clothing in the eponymous mailing catalogue and a home-made loaf. Its appearance in the book's title is as masterly as what follows, an account of the Arts and Crafts-style life that created the Bridgewater Pottery empire, satisfying to read and thickly spread with luscious photography... it is hard not to fall for this narrator, who comes across as all of a piece: sagacious, plain-speaking and energetic, labouring at her pottery, her family life and the writing process, to bring them all into something not far off perfection. -- Ruth Guilding * World of Interiors *
