No jokes about British food please, this is not 1970 and the Brits are now on top of the global food game.
One area that the small island nation excels at is baking and that’s why Regula Ysewijn’s book The British Baking Book is essential reading.
The Iconism Of British Cookery
This isn’t any old recipe book and Regula has aimed to focus on the iconic dishes that make British baking stand out from the crowd.
For example, who can refuse the unfussy jam-layered Victoria sandwich?
And whose heart isn’t just a little lighter for a taste of sweet lamb pie?
An Evolutionary History
And it’s not just recipes that you get here.
Regula also wants to tell you the story of the history of British baking and its evolution.
Undoubtedly, The Best British Baking Book
Sure, we had some reservations when we first heard “British” baking but we’ve been pleasantly surprised.
These recipes are full of authenticity and love and they capture the spirit of a more innocent time and as we all know, Happiness is Baking.
