Over 100 Foolproof Bakes (The Great British Bake Off)
I’m very disappointed. Bought to get some new ideas for everyday baking and found it far too complicated for baking with my children. Lots of hints and tips from “paul and mary” make it worthwhile in parts but not “everyday” bakes in my mind. Avoid unless a die-hard GBBO fan.
Metline Rating: 2 stars (Bakerloo)
