A Month of Cookbooks - Day Twenty Seven

 The Hummingbird Bakery - Cake Days
 By Tarek Malouf
 Published by Harper Collins, 2011

This is my guilty pleasure, the book I drool over, and the book which convinced me that I am definitely a Grade -A glutton!

The second cookbook from the amazing staff at the famous Hummingbird Bakery in London, the recipes in this book are a delight. We have made several of the recipes, which are distinctive, upmarket, delicious but not necessarily cheap to make, I have to admit.

The book is divided into seasonal themes:

  • Valentine's Day
  • Spring Weekend Bakes
  • Mother's & Father's Day
  • Easter
  • Summer Afternoon Tea
  • Birthdays & Celebrations
  • Rainy Day Treats
  • Halloween & Bonfire Night
  • Christmas  
and include seasonal fresh  ingredients in many.  There is a full listing of the recipes included here.

The only possible word to describe this book is "Yum!".
