Emma Bridgewater, queen of kitchenware, proves herself queen of the memoir too. As attractive, comforting and encouraging as her products, this book is similarly innocent of tweeness or cloying cosiness. The crunch of good toast and the bitter sweetness of good marmalade in fact.
[Toast & Marmalade] is a glossy scrapbook of family recipes and childhood memories of camping trips or picnics that shimmer in the late afternoon sun.
In these 'stories', Emma shares her passions and with them comes a satisfying feeling of wellbeing.
Emma Bridgewater's captivating recipe for a happy family life: food, passion, work, love.
It's the kind of beautiful, recipe-packed book you'd buy to give to your mother-in-law and end up keeping for yourself.
What a great read - a true British inspiration story - I loved it!
