I first came across this book when a young British Doctor came to work at our hospital. After much indepth reading of this book, I just had to have a copy for myself.
What I like about this book is that it covers a vast range of "Baking" from Muffins, Teabreads, Gingerbreads, Cakes & Cake Decorating (the basics), Cheesecakes, Roulades, Biscuits and many more. This book also has Questions & Answers at the back of each section, so if for some reason you baking hasn't turned out as expected, you can look up what went wrong at back of that particular section.
This book has fantastic pictures and some great sketches for methods ie; how to pipe meringues etc. From my extensive cookbook library, this book is truly one of my most treasured cookbooks for, which I refer to frequently.
I believe that this book is well worth the money (Well worth what it cost to ship it to Australia.....) Honestly, you will not regret your purchase. Enjoy and happy baking.
