- A Baker's Life contains 100 of Paul Hollywood's very best baking recipes, which have been finessed over the length of his thirty-year career. Each chapter is filled with bakes that represent a different decade - learning the basics at his father's bakery; honing his pastry skills in the finest hotels; discovering the bold flavours of the Middle East while working in Cyprus; and finding fame with the phenomenally popular Great British Bake Off television series. Thanks to this book (and its clear step-by-step instructions), recipes that Paul has spent years perfecting can be recreated at home. Favourites include garlic baguettes; feta and chive bread; chorizo and chilli Scotch eggs; mum's ginger biscuits; double chocolate Danish twists; and hazelnut cappuccino cake. With photos from the old family albums and many anecdotes and professional insights into what makes a great baker, A Baker's Life will show you how to bring the skills of a lifetime into your own kitchen.
