Summary

Accompanying the Channel 4 series, A Baker's Life contains 100 of Paul Hollywood's very best baking recipes, which have been finessed over decades spent as a baker.  
 
Each chapter is filled with bakes that represent a different decade – learning the basics at his father's bakery; honing his pastry skills in the finest hotels; discovering the bold flavours of the Middle East while working in Cyprus; and finding fame with the phenomenally popular Great British Bake Off television series. 
 
Thanks to this book (and its clear step-by-step instructions), recipes that Paul has spent years perfecting can be recreated at home. Favourites include garlic baguettes; feta and chive bread; chorizo and chilli Scotch eggs; mum's ginger biscuits; double chocolate Danish twists; and hazelnut cappuccino cake. 
 
With photographs from personal family albums, plus many professional insights into and anecdotes that reveal what makes a great baker, A Baker's Life will show you how to bring the baking skills Paul has learnt over a lifetime into your own home kitchen.

    A palate-pleasing cookbook that “enables us to virtually visit Italy’s 20 regions and savor its pastas” (Booklist, starred review).   In Pasta Modern, Italian food authority Francine Segan challenges the notion that pasta must be traditional or old-world. In this beautifully photographed cookbook, Segan details the hottest, newest, and most unusual pasta dishes from Italy’s food bloggers, home cooks, artisan pasta makers, and vanguard chefs. The one hundred distinctive pasta recipes, including many vegan and vegetarian specialties, range from simple and elegant (Pasta with Caramelized Oranges) to more complex (Neapolitan Carnevale Lasagna) to cutting-edge (Cappuccino-Caper Pasta). Tips and anecdotes culled from Segan’s Italian travels enhance the easy-to-follow directions, and a glossary of more than fifty extraordinary dried pastas showcases shapes to revive any pasta lover’s repertoire. For contemporary, authentic Italian pasta, Pasta Modern is the go-to guide.

    In a world where everyone seems to be trying to eat more healthfully and seasonally, nothing makes more sense for dinner than pasta with vegetables. In Four Seasons Pasta, best-selling author Janet Fletcher follows the harvest to create more than 50 seasonal recipes for this wholesome combination. Inspired by the southern Italian pasta repertoire, Fletcher has unearthed many little-known gems—authentic, unfussy regional recipes that even novice cooks can make. From a spring fava bean stew with fusilli to summer's spaghetti alla Palermitana (with zucchini, tomatoes, anchovies and capers), peak-season produce paired with pasta makes a totally satisfying meal. Autumn brings radicchio to braise with pancetta and onions—a savory sauce for tagliatelle. Even winter provides produce for the pasta kitchen: beans for hearty bean-and-pasta soups and kale for a winter pesto. With guidelines for choosing dried pasta, making fresh pasta from scratch, and equipping the pasta kitchen, Four Seasons Pasta offers readers a delicious and sensible way to eat for life.
