Every once in a while a cookbook comes out that blows readers away. World renown chef and judge of The Great British Bakeoff, Paul Hollywood, has released one of the best baking books out there: BAKE: My Best Ever Recipes for the Classics. Hollywood has included an excellent variety of baked goods, such as breads, pastries, cakes, cookies, desserts, and even savory British pies.

The recipes are written in the traditional manner and are easy to follow. Not to say they are easy (some recipes have several steps and take time to prepare correctly), but the instructions are good enough that bakers at every level can successfully follow them and end up with perfect results.

The recipes lean toward British classics, like Sticky Toffee Pudding, Hot Cross Buns, and Lemon Drizzle Cake, Ultimate Sausage Rolls, and Victoria Sponge, Hollywood has included Foccacia, and some mouthwatering international breads such as Naan, Brioche, Croissants, Lagana, and Maneesh.
The photographs are exceptional. There is a photograph of every recipe, which gives bakers an idea of how their finished product should look.

Hollywood has outdone himself this time, and will inspire bakers to fall in love with this excellent cookbook. It should be on every baker’s shelf and is a good choice for gifts. Highly recommended.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
