Anneka Manning believes that many accomplished home cooks find baking daunting simply because they haven’t been taught the basic foundations and techniques.
This unusual baking book takes the form of a series of ‘lessons’ designed to teach readers the ten most common mixing methods including ‘the measure and beat method’, ‘the rubbing-in method’ and ‘the kneading method’.
Each lesson begins with an introduction and step-by-step images to help you get the hang of the techniques. The chapter then includes recipes using that method so you can practise your skills and build your confidence in the kitchen. There are 92 sweet and savoury recipes in total, from a simple chocolate cake to white chocolate and orange macaroons. They’re classic, fail-safe recipes that, whether you consider yourself a baker or not, you’ll find yourself making time and time again.
