This superb book will change your baking for ever. Fiona Cairns’ wonderful recipes, combing both a beguiling exoticism and an essential Britishness, give stunning new taste combinations. Try her astonishing saffron-and cardamom-scented Alphonso mango pavlova at the start of summer, or sprinkle fiery chopped chilli into chocolate shortbread to keep out the winter cold.
Here are recipes to celebrate each seasonal milestone, inspired by the foods growing around us. Make rhubarb and custard cupcakes to celebrate the arrival of spring, or dig into spiced butternut squash mini loaves at harvest time.
The inspiring creations in this book will keep you baking around the year with the best produce each season can offer. With recipes to take you from Valentine’s Day and Mothering Sunday gifts, through Easter treats and summer picnics, to Hallowe’en party food and the very best Christmas cakes, this is the only baking book you will ever need.
