A baking cookbook from The Great British Bakeoff contestant Ruby Tandoh, with a focus on charming, flavorful, and practical dishes that celebrate the joy of casual baking.
Enjoy the pleasures that baking has to offer, from the exertion of a long knead to the crackle of a loaf cooling on the countertop. Crumb presents a simple yet exuberant sort of baking, with recipes such as Chamomile Vanilla Cupcakes, Rosemary Pecan Pie, Fennel Seed & Chile Crackers, and Chocolate Lime Mud Cake that excite the palate and bring bliss to everyday baking. A delight to read as well as to cook from, Crumb covers a range of projects from sweet to savory--including cakes, cookies, crackers, bread, pastries, pies, tarts, and more. This is baking stripped back and enjoyed for its own sake, with recipes you’ll return to over and over again.
