Paul Hollywood - Bread, Buns and Baking : The Unauthorised Biography of Britain's Best-loved Baker Hardback
by A. S Dagnell
Paul Hollywood is without doubt the man of the moment in British baking.
His luxurious dough recipes have been singled-handedly responsible for the mass ignition of ovens across the UK since the advent of The Great British Bake Off.
Admired for his straight-talking style and amazing technical knowledge, Paul's judging partnership with Mary Berry has been described as one of television's best ever. Having made the cross-Atlantic jump to judge in The Great American Baking Competition, it's clear that there is no stopping the magnetic Liverpudlian. And make no mistake: Hollywood has the magic touch in the kitchen to back up his fame, with his artisan baking business even supplying a GBP15 loaf o Harrods. But then, he was always destined for great things. Descended from a line of illustrious bakers, Hollywood originally trained as a sculptor, giving him the deftly skilful hands his viewers delight in watching.
From kneading dough as a 17-year-old apprentice to his father to working as head baker at the prestigious Dorchester Hotel, his professional career is legendary.
