My Best Ever Recipes for the Classics
by Paul Hollywood
To his fans, Paul Hollywood needs no introduction. He has made his name as one of the judges on the British baking show where contestants vie for a glass plate prize and a handshake. For those who would like to see what recipes Mr. Hollywood himself uses and recommends this book will be a delightful treat and, one that is full of treats to make. These are offered in sections including Cake, Breads and Flatbreads, Pastry and Pies, Cookies and Scones, Pizzas and Doughnuts, and, finally, Desserts.
The recipes have clear directions and it does not look like one must already be a talented baker to attempt them. There are also many illustrations throughout, some of which will undoubtedly make readers salivate.
One thing that I very much enjoyed in this book were the sections in which Hollywood talks about what baking means to him, the memories that we bring to the cakes we eat, and more. On the TV shows, Hollywood can seem abrasive at times but he is not in the writing within these pages.
I was fortunate to receive an e-galley of this title. I think that I will buy the hard copy when it is available in July.
Many thanks to NetGalley and Bloomsbury Publishing for this title. All opinions are my own.
