#BookReview: Bake: My best ever recipes for the #Classics by #PaulHollywood

Paul Hollywood, The King of Bread and of course the star of the Great British Baking Show, gives us a wonderful book of classics perfect for both beginning and experienced bakers. This book is easy to understand and the pictures are beautiful. I love sourdough bread, so why would I not want Paul Hollywood’s recipe? He’s Mr. Bread! Likewise for the pizza dough. Of course I want to try it!

I’ve always wanted to learn to make macarons, and the lime macaron recipe looks amazing. That is top of my list, along with the Victoria Sponge, Sticky Toffee Pudding, Individual Lemon Sponges, and so much more. All the classics are here, and they are shared in a much more casual way than we’re used to seeing from Hollywood, who is normally in “baking competition” mode on our tv screens.

If you want a beautiful cookbook of all the classics as shared with you by an experienced and famous baker, pick this one up.

I received a temporary digital copy of this book from Bloomsbury USA via Netgalley, but I will purchase a hard copy of this one. My review is voluntary and my opinions are my own.
