All of us here at the Book People have been glued to our screens every Wednesday evening for the past few weeks – and with the Great British Bake Off now entering the final stages, we’re sure we’ll continue to be fascinated… From the unadulterated drama of ‘bingate’ to the tension revolving around Martha and Kate’s messy choux pastry éclairs, GBBO fans have been on tenterhooks throughout this latest series – you never quite know Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry will say, while Mel and Sue provide a comforting and reassuring presence as presenters for both contestants and us as viewers.
With the programme now set to be a fixture in the BBC One schedules for years to come, the Bake Off continues to go from strength to strength and many are hoping to recreate the delicious bakes they’ve seen on the show. What better way to start doing this than by following the recipes in the Great British Bake Off’s Big Book of Baking? The tie-in baking book to this year’s series, it contains recipes from all the contestants and even some from Paul and Mary themselves – you’ll be sure to avoid any soggy bottoms while recreating some of this year’s best dishes.
In Mary Berry’s Cooks the Perfect, the popular judge shows how she’s far more than just the ‘Queen of Baking’… She’s pretty handy when it comes to cooking too! With over 100 all-new recipes, she covers everything from crackling to crumble – and every single recipe is simply delicious. The step-by-step instructions make things easy to follow, while her ‘Keys to Perfection’ – top tips for making the most of each dish – will keep you happily returning to the kitchen.
We also have books from previous contestants Holly Bell, John Whaite and Edd Kimber, while our 10-book Big Baking Collection will show you how to become a savoury and sweet bakes specialist. In addition to this, Paul Hollywood’s Bread will show you how to not only make a variety of different breads, but also use these as the basis for each meal!
If you’re a Bake Off fan, visit the Book People for all the baking books you’ll need – by honing your skills with our book, maybe you’ll be in the GBBO tent next year with your recipes ready to be judged by Paul and Mary.
