Written by Georgie Tarn & Tracey Fine
This book brings out the cake-making goddess in you. Even if you’ve never lined a baking tin, you’ll want to by the time you’ve flicked through a few of the recipes. Georgie Tarn and Tracey Fine babble their way through this recipes book with plenty of girl talk. Their quibbles and observations on shopping, eating and well, more eating occasionally grate, but if you find this happens, just skip straight to the recipes which are for the most part, simple, straightforward and most importantly, a pleasure to devour.
The ‘anytime cake’ was a particular recipes favourite of ours, with its suggestions for optional extras. There are plenty of recipes that will become life long favourites in this cookbook, and it’s not just cakes that feature. Sophisticated fish pie, bloody mary borscht and of course chicken soup all feature in this little treasure of a read. The prefect book to buy for friends’ birthdays – just make sure you take a peak before you wrap it up and give it away.
