Description: Who hasn't lingered outside a baker's shop before, on an irrepressible impulse, they step inside? Bakers need no more effective marketing than the smell and sight of their wares, from freshly-baked scones and warm nutty loaves to rich chocolate brownies. Yet we are increasingly provided with a second-class alternative to traditional baking: muffins wrapped in cellophane and swiss rolls hiding behind silver foil, injected with preservatives to guarantee a longer shelf-life.
Baking is a culinary art lost to many otherwise excellent and enthusiastic cooks. Modern lives cannot apparently accommodate much beyond the evening 'quick-fix' meal and occasional dinner party ... Sue Lawrence, 'the most innovative cook working today' (Clarissa Dickson Wright), here refutes such dismissive claims and demonstrates the joys and ease of home-baking.
On Baking embraces all aspects of baking, offering up savoury and sweet breads, scones, biscuits, cakes, loaves and tarts. Here are traditional recipes for gingerbread, Bath buns and chocolate shortbread in addition to the more curious-sounding Selkirk bannock, Orkney broonie and fat rascals. Included are regional specialities as well as a repertoire of international recipes for the adventurous: blinis from Russia, Lamingtons from Australia, Chapatis from India, Linzertorte from Austria, and the now-fashionable olive and sunflower breads.
Sue Lawrence has reappraised age-old recipes to incorporate the health-conscious ingredients of today, and, with abundant time-saving tips, to suit modern timetables. Illustrated throughout by Jean Cazals' enticing photographs, these recipes will draw the reader into experimenting -- until they're hooked on baking and realise how quick, healthy and inexpensive it can be.
