This is a great collection of recipes. Some unusual ingredients are used in some recipes but these are easy to find in health food shops. Photography is inspiring. Nice collection of quick recipes also included.
Fantastic baking book, clear instructions with beautiful illustrations. I like the fact that the majority of ingredients are normal everyday store cupboard essentials for a baker. At last some different recipes that turn out as expected. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys baking no matter what level of experience baking there is something for everyone to try.
This is a gorgeous book. I do like Donna Hay and her recipes. When I visit my daughter in Australia I always make sure I buy her monthly magazine that is issued over there as it is just full of the most lovely stuff.
The first section in this book is Chocolate and I just drooled over the pages - chocolate and maple banana cake, white chocolate and amaretti cake. Fig and chocolate truffles (I am making these for Christmas) there are so many imaginative recipes and the instructions are simple and uncomplicated and accompanied by beautiful photographs.
There are quick and easy recipes here as well and the feeling is that this is a book which can be used by most competant bakers and cooks. It is not high brow or pretentious in any way. All recipes are, as in all cook books these days, given in metric and no imperial measures and I always find this sightly irritating. But that is my only criticism of a beautiful book. I dislike the word ‘accessible’ as i think it is over used but everything in this book is.
A treat to read even if you never cook anything from it!
really easy recipes to follow, i haven't cooked donna hays recipes before, but i would now ,easy to follow, great results, the recipes are obviously tried and tested before they are printed, the book is gorgeous well photographed with a picture of every recipe if you like baking, cakes , biscuits and chocolate then this a book i would recommend.
I'm a big Donna Hay fan, and this is another of her books that will see a lot of usage in our house. Predominately sweet recipes, it has plenty of simple options for novices, and some interesting inspirations for more advanced bakers. Have a given a few copies as gifts, and recipients have all loved it.
