Book Launch: First Cream the Butter & Sugar
Books for Cooks
"Make baking your happy place. It's not so much a science; it's practice plus play, which becomes instinct and then art. And even the failures are delicious."
Emelia Jackson's First, Cream the Butter and Sugar is the ultimate guide for anyone who loves cake. Whether you're searching for the only choc chip cookie recipe you'll ever need, or aspiring to conquer an opera cake, a raspberry passionfruit tart or become a choux-master, this is the book for you.
A natural baker (who needs to be really precise?) Emelia guides you through the techniques that truly matter and sidesteps the steps that don't. Packed with advice for every level of home baker, this is the modern baking reassurance many of us need, whether it's the night before the birthday party or just a Sunday afternoon for baking something sweet to get you through the week.
Emelia is a life long baker. You may recall her from season six of Masterchef; the baker we all wanted to win, or the 2020 season where she came back and won the lot. Before, between and after stints on Masterchef, Emelia has been baking, designing cakes, and indulging in butter, sugar and flour almost every hour of the day and now she has put all her love for baking down on the page.
Amanda is very much looking forward to baking from this. Please join us on 8th November for a delicious discussion about all things sweet and baking with Emelia Jackson; oh and a piece of cake or two!
