Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Country [loaf]

    • Astrid5555 on April 16, 2020

      Not sure if the spelt starter I used for the first time again after taking it out of the fridge worked properly, this recipe produced only a small loaf of bread with very little oven spring. Also, the baking time stated for using a Dutch oven was way too short to get the desired color, it needed 15 more minutes in the oven without the lid on, and then 10 more turned upside-down directly on a pre-heated baking sheet. That said, still a nice tasting loaf of bread, no complaints from the family here.

  • Roast fennel, quinoa, orange and sunflower seeds [salad]

    • Astrid5555 on January 02, 2021

      Perfect winter salad, loved the fennel and blood orange combination. A keeper!

  • Pistachio and lime [loaf]

    • Lepa on May 25, 2020

      This is a simple, nutty loaf. It was understated and good for breakfast. It took an extra ten minutes to cook through and the edges burned a bit but it was done at around 1 hour and ten minutes.

  • Butternut squash and Birnam honey [loaf]

    • leilx on January 27, 2022

      She gives a raw weight of squash and then says they usually bake a lot more and just measure out what they need of purée…but doesn’t give the amount of purée she uses! Very frustrating when you have purée already and have to guess how much to use. Given that 1 lb of squash is supposed to make about 1 1/4 c purée, it seems like this calls for only about 1/4 c. A similar reaction in Honey and Jam calls for 1 c.

  • Angus’ shortbread

    • leilx on August 18, 2021

      Very easy to make. Melts in the mouth. Makes more of a shortbread bar than a cookie. Be careful not to overbake or it goes more crisp. Keep it just the palest gold.

  • Chocolate oat cookies

    • Cochise on July 10, 2021

      Cookies spread a lot. Quite sweet, maybe an error in the ingredients.

  • Roma’s elderflower cordial

    • Hansyhobs on June 19, 2022

      Made with Putney foraged elderflower. A standard recipe for this sort of elderflower cordial, very nice. Must have made about 4l of the stuff

  • Crème pat

    • Hansyhobs on May 10, 2022

      Made this for the rhubarb and pistachio danish and it turned out great

  • Rhubarb pistachio Danish

    • Hansyhobs on May 10, 2022

      I cheated and made these with rough puff but they still turned out great. I found the folding instructions hard to visualise so I looked up some YouTube videos which really helped

  • Blood orange and cardamom loaf

    • Hansyhobs on May 08, 2022

      Fantastic cake but I couldn't really taste the cardamon so I'd recommend more than the measured the amount
