‘Every kitchen needs a Rose’ – Nigel Slater

ROSE PRINCE The Pocket Bakery Easy-to-follow techniques, secrets, and recipes to get everyone baking. Beginning as an idea to get her children to earn their pocket money and gain a lifelong skill, Rose Prince, along with daughter Lara, 13, and son Jack, 16, began opening up their Battersea home every Saturday morning to sell freshly made bread which they made themselves. Trained in the art of sourdough by guru Giuseppe Mascoli (who creates famously delicious sourdough-based pizzas in his Franco Manca restaurants in Brixton Market and Chiswick) the Pocket Bakery has gone from strength to strength. Today, it is a thriving local bakery with a big future that produces quality and delicious artisan baking from brioche loaves in flower pots to scrumptious teatime cakes. This is a beautifully illustrated cookbook with recipes for crusty baguettes, mouth-watering pastries, hearty sandwich loaves and buttery pastries, all interwoven with a light-hearted family narrative. Rose Prince has been writing and campaigning about food for over 15 years. She writes two weekly columns for The Daily Telegraph and is author of three bestselling cookery books, including The New English Kitchen and Kitchenella, which was shortlisted for a Galaxy Award. Rose Prince’s Baking Club, a forum for recipes, reader tips and advice is featured in The Daily Telegraph’s Saturday Weekend section.
