Books & Writing


To date, I have written two books, one sweet, and one savoury.

Great British Bakes

Published November 2013

A selection of British bakes from across the centuries that we used to enjoy and have somehow forgotten.  Divided into seven main chapters, rediscover Cakes, large and small, Biscuits and Gingerbread, Pastry, Puddings and Yeast-raised treats.
