Following a career as a craft baker, Jimmy Burgess was offered the job of pastry chef with free rein in the kitchens of Glasgow hotel, One Devonshire Gardens. Here he reveals 35 years' worth of recipes of small batch baking, using traditional foodstuffs. Recipes include flour batter cakes, petit fours, speciality breads, pastries and confectionery. Cookery writer and Glenfiddich Award-winner Catherine Brown provides a revealing portrait of Jimmy's working life and the techniques he has employed throughout it. There is also practical advice on methods and equipment for home bakers.
