I love getting recipe books - I quite like browsing them like you would a magazine.
Allyson Gofton's latest offering The Baker's Companion does not disappoint.
It's a beautiful hard covered book and the images make you feel either like baking immediately and certainly like brewing the kettle and sitting down to some serious eating.
Just after I received it my hubby was scheduled for a work shout so I made a couple of the recipes. Both went down a a treat so I consider that a good advert for the book.
The book has a great general know-how section at the start which is perfect if you have someone wanting to become a proficient baker.
The chapters are Pastry, Tray Bakes/Slices/Brownies, Tea Time Quick Bakes, Biscuits and Baked Puddings (hooray for wintery nights and warm puds), Pavlovas/Meringues, Breads and Yeast Baking.
It's a fabulous hard covered book and would make a great gift, or a gift for yourself if you're a baking type.
