    There are some issues with the recipes in this book. Check out http://www.danlepard.com/ for any modifications (the choc chip cookies and garlic bread in particular). The pecan shortbread is delicious.

      Delicious, took longer to bake in my oven.

  • Benedict bar

    • pomona on March 30, 2019

      Delicious jammy, nutty shortbread bar.

  • Bramley apple sourdough

    • SpatulaClark on April 26, 2020

      Pleasant fruity flavour, and easy to make if you can have periodic involvement over a few hours. Good result with Granny Smith apples. I think the lengthy given post-shaping proof time is for sourdough only, because I added the optional dry yeast and it was somewhat over-proofed in 2 hours - I'd check around an hour after shaping, as normal with dry yeast.

  • Dolly Bakes

    It reminds me of a school textbook (which incidentally, we never had in Food Technology...) but is filled with mouth watering pictures too.

Baker & Spice is a small artisanal baker in London whose exceptional breads, cakes and pastries have won widespread critical acclaim and a loyal international clientele. This beautiful shop in Walton Street, Knightsbridge, is a place where a young team has redefined our expectations about the quality of the food we eat, working with almost entirely organic ingredients and using the handmade techniques of a craft producer. Baking With Passion is a distillation of those skills and working practices, a book that communicates how to achieve remarkable results in a domestic environment, using ordinary ovens and standard equipment.

You will be able to enjoy the breads that Baker & Spice supplies to top restaurants in London such as Zafferano, Le Gavroche, River Cafe and The Sugar Club--from moist and delicious sour wild yeast breads and baguettes to butter-rich broches and dense rye breads--as well as the elegant tarts, falky croissants, cookies and biscuits, and irresistible cakes of all kinds that are sold in the splendid bakery.

This is an essentially practical guide for the home baker, offering detailed, easy-to-follow recipes that guarantee expert results every time. There are no arcane secrets, just sound practice and good technique to ensure that everything the professional bakers at Baker & Spice do, you can do too. All the recipes have been tested in a domestic kitchen and are illustrated with stunning photographs, including step-by-steps that clarify the more complicated procedures. Throughout, the emphasis is on simplicity and achievability, the clear text taking the reader in easy stages from start to finish.
