At last, the star of BBC2's The Great British Bake Off reveals all the secrets of his craft in How to Bake.

The son of a baker, Paul Hollywood is passionate about busting the myths that surround baking, sharing his finely honed skills, and showing that with the right guidance, anybody can achieve success time after time.

With this in mind, he has filled this book with easy-to-follow, clearly explained, utterly delicious recipes.

Having taken you through the basic techniques, Paul explains how to make an abundance of breads, pastries, cakes and biscuits including wholemeal loaf, soda bread, ciabatta, focaccia, chapatis, Cheddar and apple bread, fruit loaf, fresh croissants, scones, classic Victoria sponge, lemon drizzle cake, baklava, buttery shortbread and triple layer chocolate cake.

Looking forward to baking some of the breads in particular - I have used a couple of recipes reproduced on the internet, with success, as Hollywood makes sure that each step is fully explained.
