Accompanying the Channel 4 series, A Baker's Life contains 100 of Paul Hollywood's very best baking recipes, which have been finessed over decades spent as a baker. Try your hand at Paul's expertly honed recipes including Courgette Pizza with Ricotta and Thyme, satisfying Sesame-Topped Buns with Home-made Burgers, a beautiful and delicate Pistachio and Rose Petal Roulade, as well as Paul's classic Madeira Cake used to make his showstopping Nude Meringue Finish Celebration Cake. Each chapter is filled with bakes that represent a different decade - learning the basics at his father's bakery; honing his pastry skills in the finest hotels; discovering the bold flavours of the Middle East while working in Cyprus; and finding fame with the phenomenally popular Great British Bake Off television series. Thanks to this book (and its clear step-by-step instructions), recipes that Paul has spent years perfecting can be recreated at home. Favourites include garlic baguettes; feta and chive bread; chorizo and chilli Scotch eggs; mum's ginger biscuits; double chocolate Danish twists; and hazelnut cappuccino cake. With photographs from personal family albums, plus many professional insights into and anecdotes that reveal what makes a great baker, A Baker's Life will show you how to bring the baking skills Paul has learnt over a lifetime into your own home kitchen.
