This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Twelve new amateur bakers are ready to rise to the Great British Bake Off challenge. While they don their aprons, adjust to their new ovens and get used to baking in a tent, this book takes you through the challenges from the series and shows you how to achieve baking perfection.Throughout the book, Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood are on hand with practical tips to help you create perfect cakes, biscuits, breads, pastries, pies and teatime treats every time, as well as showing you how to tackle their 'technical challenges', as seen on the show. There are over 120 recipes in this book, including traditional British bakes and imaginative twists using classic ingredients, as well as the best contestant recipes from the series. There is plenty to challenge keen bakers here, from brandy snaps to elaborate pastries, pavlovas to iced celebration cakes, and with a sensuous and yet practical design and full-colour, step-by-step photography, this really will become the baking book that you will turn to for years to come.
Just a warning this book has a new format which is a little strange. I can see the reasoning behind it as it is easier to move between pages of the recipe in order to go backwards and forwards to the ingredients etc, however it doesn't seem finished. You can scan across two pages which means that you can end up half way between pages (not good with butter hands) but it only works for pages which would be next to ch other in the actual cook book, you would think they would take advantage of the ebook format to fiddle with it slightly. It also doesn't take up the entire screen and looks really strange.
Other than that the pictures are crisp and very pretty and a glance at the recipes they look good but I am not sure how much I will use the book as the format is so strange.
Difficult to use
The content of this book is excellent but the electronic layout is extremely frustrating and spoils the experience of browsing through it, not sure it will be easy to use without first printing out the required page which rather defeats the object. Would recommend to buy the book rather than the electronic version...disappointing!
The content of this book is great, but it's near on impossible to even turn the page. It's slow chunky and just horrible to use. I've never seen a book like it in iBooks.... The programming is simply horrible. Somebody needs there head read if they think this should have been released in this poor standard. Mary would not be best pleased. I'll be buying the hard back version.
