Fast Cakes is the unmissable and definitive baking book from Mary Berry. Mary has incorporated her 'all-in-one' method of preparation into as many recipes as possible, so her recipes are faster to make than ever. Nearly 100 of the bakes take only 10 minutes to make and Mary has included small bake variations for fruit cakes, which traditionally take a long time in the oven, so you can make one even when you are pushed for time.There are scones, buns and biscuits that you can whip up for tea, traybakes and fruit loaves perfect for a school or village fete and of course foolproof cakes for every occasion from everyday recipes such as a Honey and Almond Cake to Mary's First-Rate Chocolate Cake. Not forgetting recipes you can make with your kids from Happy Face Biscuits to Traffic Lights and Jammy Buns.If you miss Mary's wisdom and inspiration in The Great British Bake Off, or want a brand-new companion to Mary Berry's Baking Bible, this is the cookbook for you, with over 150 easy recipes to make with confidence.Straightforward recipes you can trust, Fast Cakes is a must-have for all busy bakers.Note: Fast Cakes was first published by Piatkus in 1981 and was an instant hit with classic recipes that could be made in minutes. A bestseller of its time, many families are still baking with it now, but 37 years on, Mary Berry has completely revised and updated this much-loved book. Collected together with recipes from Mary's follow-up book, More Fast Cakes, published in 1988, this is a beautifully photographed hardback edition for a new generation of bakers.

A Pot of Marmalade

Sarah Randell
Authors:
Sarah Randell

This is a black and white paperback edition of Marmalade: A Bittersweet Cookbook, published in hardback in 2014 by Saltyard Books. If you would like the original colour illustrated version of Marmalade it is available in hardback ISBN 9781444784329. From the arrival of the first boxes of bitter Seville oranges at the greengrocer's in January, to the sweet-sharp scent of citrus fruit filling the kitchen as the preserving pan bubbles away on the stove, there is something deeply satisfying about the annual ritual of making marmalade and piling the pantry shelves high with neatly labeled jars of glistening preserves.Once you've perfected the set and balanced the bittersweet flavour in your traditional orange marmalade, you might experiment with different fruits, or try adding alcohol, essences or spices - cardamom, ginger or a hint of bergamot - but after that, what to do with all those pots of citrus perfection? A jar or two to friends and family, another for the breakfast table... and then what? It's time to start using it for baking and cooking. From Christmas ham to rhubarb and marmalade trifle, and from chocolate fondants with bitter orange centres to marmalade marguerites, here is all the inspiration you need to make the most of marmalade right through the year.

Five Quarters

Rachel Roddy
Authors:
Rachel Roddy

Rachel Roddy's Five Quarters won the Guild of Food Writers' First Book award and the André Simon Food Book award 2015.'Five Quarters stands out as particularly considered and evocative...Impeccably researched and transportive, it's a proper read, rather than a quick flick.' AA Gill, Sunday Times best cookbooks 2015'Of course I thought Rome was glorious, but I didn't want to stay. A month, three at most, then I'd take a train back to Sicily to finish the clockwise journey I'd interrupted, before moving even further southwards...'Instead, captivated by the exhilarating life of Testaccio, the wedge-shaped quarter of Rome that centres round the old slaughterhouse and the bustling food market, Rachel decided to rent a flat and live there. Thus began an Italian adventure that's turned into a brand new life. Five Quarters charts a year in Rachel's small kitchen, shopping, cooking, eating and writing, capturing a uniquely domestic picture of life in this vibrant, charismatic city. Combining Rachel's love of Italian food and cooking with a strong nostalgia for home and memories of growing up in England, this is a cookbook to read in bed as well as to use in the kitchen.Chapters:AntipastiSoup & PastaMeat & FishVegetablesDolci

Blog: Christmas TV Round-up

As we all know, Christmas is a time for reflection, rest, and seeing your loved ones. More importantly, it’s the only time of the year when it is acceptable to fill a bath with twiglets and watch The Muppets’ Christmas Carol (at least it is in my house). So here’s a quick rundown of this year’s festive TV highlights. Monday 17th THE FABULOUS BAKER BROTHERS DO CHRISTMAS (9:00pm, More4) Everybody’s favourite baking duo have cooked up 12 mouthwatering dishes for the 12 days of Christmas. Forget the sprouts, how about whisky-smoked salmon? Bosh. Tuesday 18th BRADLEY WIGGINS: A VERY BRITISH CHAMPION (8:00pm, More4) Aah Wiggo, is there anything he can’t do? More4 are repeating their documentary about the mod, god and newly crowned Sports Personality of the Year. Friday 21st UNIVERISTY CHALLENGE CHRISTMAS SPECIAL (7:30pm, BBC2) ‘Why are we watching this? I never know any of the answers and I just—Hydrochloric acid?! Oh, it was John Milton. Still I was close. Anyway, why are we watching this?’ Get those answers in quick to avoid a Paxo stuffing… Saturday 22nd STRICTLY COME DANCING (6:30pm, BBC1) Our own Bruno Tonioli and his fellow judges will be presiding over this year’s final. Expect laughs, tears and bauble puns aplenty. Christmas Day Betty’s done her speech, you’ve scrubbed all the goose fat off the oven door, and you’re just about hoping that John Lewis snowman gets run over on the motorway. What better way to calm down than a repeat of a documentary about Eddie Stobart lorries on Channel 5? Cracking stuff! Alternatively… DOWNTON ABBEY (8:45pm, ITV1) David Mitchell and Benedict Cumberbatch aren’t the biggest of fans, but the rest of country will be tuning in to see half the Downton lot off on their summer hols whilst the others prepare for the Thirsk Country Fair. Here’s hoping for extending scenes of Maggie Smith guessing the weight of a cake with acerbic asides. Boxing Day Sky Atlantic treat us to a show about Richard E. Grant staying in expensive hotels whilst Channel 4 go with hairy-footed, sword-fest, The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers. At just over seventeen hours long, expect scenes of an Elven nature. And finally, everyone’s favourite hapless heroine Miranda Hart kicks off series three of her eponymous outing with a festive special.
