The Weekend Baker

Written by

Paul Hollywood


19 May 2016

Who's the author? Paul Hollywood, household name, the nation's favourite baker and judge on The Great British Bake Off. 

What's it about? Paul's favourite bakes from his favourite cities. He travels all over the world, rooting out the best recipes for us to recreate at home. From Paris to Miami, New York to Naples, Paul explores what makes a great classic bake and presents them in his book with his own unique twist. 

Good book for: Anyone who is already a fan of Paul's, of course. But more broadly, for those who love baking sweet and savoury recipes from all over the world. This is a great family baking book and there really is something for everyone to eat, and get involved in.
