Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Flaky shortcrust pastry - whole rye variation

    • eliza on May 13, 2022

      Made a half recipe to try out his rolling pin method, which was new to me. I found it quite difficult and messy, but it came together eventually; if I did this again, I would cut the butter into smaller pieces to start with. Baked in a galette (filling from a different book) using his galette instructions. Resulted in a very flaky pastry, will def repeat.

  • Rye sourdough crackers

    • eliza on December 15, 2021

      My first recipe from this beautiful book, and it’s a winner. Very easy and quick, these crackers use discard (or fresh starter) along with whole grain flours to make a crunchy, tasty cracker. I used rye starter and einkorn flour along with a seed mixture (poppy, sesame, and caraway seeds), and I increased the salt a little. These will go into regular rotation.

  • Zucchini, goat’s cheese and rosemary loaf

    • readingtragic on August 06, 2021

      The recipe specifies an onion, tells you to cook it, then no mention of it again. I imagine you mix it with the zucchini and stir into the batter, or mix it in after or at the same time as the zucchini…

  • Onion and Gruyère gougères

    • pomona on August 16, 2021

      So good. Did not last long.

  • Rabbit, bacon and white bean pie

    • pomona on August 16, 2021

      Rabbit is not cheap but this was delicious and it made a bunch of pies. They were easy to freeze and were still great reheated. Pastry held up well.

  • Root Wellington

    • pomona on August 16, 2021

      Bit of a showstopper. I'm looking forward to being able to have guests because this is a dinner party centrepiece.

  • Rabbit and wild rice pie

    • pomona on August 16, 2021

      Tasty, but turns out that black rice in tomato sauce is a look and texture I find not entirely pleasant. But if you love that combo, this is a winner.

  • Celeriac, kale and hazelnut muffins

    • pomona on August 16, 2021

      Delicious and easy. Easy to prepare ahead, mix dry and wet for quick breakfast baking.

  • Nettle and Gruyère muffins

    • pomona on August 16, 2021

      Delicious and easy. Easy to prepare ahead, mix dry and wet for quick breakfast baking. Replaced nettle with spinach because I couldn't get nettle at the time.

  • Tomato and anchovy spelt galettes

    • luluf on August 17, 2021

      These were wonderful. The pastry is delicious and flaky and the filling is great. I’ll be making these again and soon

    • Ganga108 on January 14, 2022

      Galettes are common in our household - they are wonderful vehicles for using up end-of-the-week veggies and even leftovers. We use an excellent frozen spelt pastry as I don't have eggs in the house. Instead of the onion I used the last (almost) of the home made savoury fennel jam, and topped with tomatoes and olives as suggested by the recipe. I might just add some feta next time, or perhaps bocconcini, and omit the parmesan. Overall, very delicious, and very easy.

  • Ratatouille and bocconcini pie

    • luluf on August 05, 2021

      Delicious ratatouille filling but my pie bottoms were soggy, maybe I should have made a bigger hole in the pastry lid. I also used frozen shop-bought pastry. I will be making these again and I will make the up the short crust pastry recipe in the book next time.

  • Tomato kasundi

    • Ganga108 on November 22, 2021

      Kasundi is a Bengali condiment - sauce, chutney or relish, somewhere in between all of these. First and foremost it is mustardy in flavour, using brown or black mustard seeds, or a mix of these and yellow mustard seeds. Tomato Kasundi is one of the variations on the basic kasundi (the most popular variation uses green mangoes). This recipe by Michael James has the typical kasundi building blocks - garlic, chillies, turmeric. Other recipes may vary in the spices, but Michael keeps it simple with ginger and cumin. The main issue with this recipe is the low level of mustard seeds. A typical Indian/Bengali recipe will contain between 1 and 2.5 Tablespoon per 1 kg tomatoes. Increase the level if you are keen. Use jaggery or palm sugar. Olive oil is not usual - use mustard oil to add to the mustardy flavours, or vegetable oil..... BTW, if it is TOO bitter or mustardy, leave it out of the fridge for a couple of days and the taste will mellow.

  • Steak and Stilton pasties

    • Lafro on September 20, 2022

      This was a labour of love and took a good few hours to make - mostly because I don't make pastry too often so had to keep re reading the recipe. The instructions were great and easy to follow. The pastys were delicious. Would make them again.

Publishers Text

For every two lovers of sweet baked treats, there is at least another who will take the gruyere gougere or the curry pastie every time, thank you. All Day Baking: Savoury, Not Sweet is a baking cookbook - at last - for them. Its mission is to deliver comforting, inventive and wholegrain-forward ideas for pies, sausage rolls, pasties and myriad other mostly pastry-based recipes, alongside gutsy accompaniments that equip the reader with the tools to transform delicious bakes into nourishing any-time-of-day meals. Author Michael James is a Michelin-restaurant chef by training who was drawn early to the art, precision, and satisfaction of baking. In All Day Baking, his second book, he turns his attention to the pasties of his UK childhood, the pies he creates today for his young family, and the quiches, sausage rolls, palmiers and galettes that have earned him a cultish following in Australia and beyond. As well, he delivers a master class in pastry - from puff to rye to vegan and gluten-free - gifting readers a foundation knowledge that sets them on a path to their own freewheeling baking adventures. The book is structured across the arc of a day but the recipes at their heart are interchangeable - if you fancy beetroot & shallot galette for breakfast or bacon & onion quiche for dinner - that's perfectly ok. And throughout there is a nod to Michael and wife Pippa James' ethos, rooted in sustainability, seasonality and a desire to minimise their waste footprint.
