A Baker's Life contains 100 of Paul Hollywood's most treasured recipes, which he has carefully finessed over the length of his career. Each chapter is filled with bakes that represent a different decade of Paul's life - learning the basics at his father's bakery; honing his skills as a top pastry chef in the finest hotels; discovering the bold flavours of the Mediterranean while working in Cyprus; and finding fame via the hugely 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 Scotch eggs, Mary Berry bread, Hand raised pie, Crumpets, Feta and chive bread, Mum's ginger biscuits, Iced buns, Baklava, Armagnac and prune tart, Macarons, Chocolate soufflé, and Hazelnut cappuccino cake. These are the loaves, buns, cakes and biscuits that have shaped Paul Hollywood's life. Filled with photographs from Paul's old photo albums and personal anecdotes, A Baker's Life is a rare insight into the meals, tastes and experiences that have defined Britain's foremost baking expert.
