The British Baking Book

by Regula Ysewjin

 

A meticulously researched, beautifully written, and richly photographed cookbook celebrating the recipes, ingenuity, history, and heritage of British baking.

 

With over 100 iconic recipes, Oats in the North tells the wonderfully evocative story of baking in Britain--and how this internationally cherished tradition has evolved from its rich heritage to today's immense popularity of The Great British Bake Off.

 

With lavish imagery and evocative narrative, the expert-baker author details the landscape, history, ingenuity, and legends--and show-stopping recipes--that have made British baking a worldwide phenomenon. From cakes, biscuits, and buns to custards, tarts, and pies, authentic recipes for Britain's spectacular sweet and savory baked goods are included here--like pink-frosted Tottenham cake, jam-layered Victoria sandwich cake, quintessential tea loaf, sweet lamb pie, Yorksire curd tart, and more. Illustrating the story of how British baking evolved throughout the country, many of the recipes have a sense-of-place heritage like Dorset apple cake, Whitby lemon buns, Cornish cake, Grasmere gingerbread, and Scottish oatcakes. Evocative and fascinating, this cookbook offers a guided tour of Britain's best baking.
