Staff Reviews

Great British Baking Show Winner David Atherton's new baking book for children and those who like to bake with them is a winner for these two novice bakers. We've tried several recipes and have shared them at staff meetings. Recipes are straightforward and easy to follow, with charming illustrations. Many recipes contain whole grains and sweeteners other than white sugar. A tasty baking book for all ages!
