About the Book


Your best friend in the kitchen and bestselling author, Rachel Allen, offers a collection of delicious and easy cakes and bakes, tarts and pies, quiches and casseroles.

What could be better than the smell of freshly baked bread or the joy of eating warm cookies straight from the oven? Do you pine for the pleasures of gingerbread houses and holiday delights or the warming goodness of home baked casseroles?

These are just some of the treats that await in Bake, which tie in with the TV series. She shares both the sweet and the savoury sides of baking, whether quick snacks, wholesome breads and pies, exotic cakes and tarts or easy baked meals for friends and family.

Rachel take the mystery out of traditional baking and pastry making, offering troubleshooting techniques for common problems and wheat or gluten-free recipes so nobody is left out of the fun!

Rachel’s friendly and expert tuition make this easy-to-use book the best friend to every home baker.
