The Great British Bake Off

Finished June 15
The Great British Bake Off:: How to Avoid a Soggy Bottom and other Secrets to Achieving a Good Bake by Gerard Baker

I was attracted to this book by the subtitle, as I have had problems with a soggy bottom on my rhubarb pies. The book covers cakes, biscuits, bread, pastry, desserts, and fillings. There are some basic recipes for common creations included in each section, lots of history, information on the chemistry of baking, and lots of helpful tips and guides to getting a good result. I know have some strategies to try the next time I make a pie.
