Everyone dreams of a home in which the smells of baking are part of everyday life. Warm bread at breakfast, homemade Florentines for tea, Tomato and Tapenade Tart for supper and Dark Muscovado Brownies are the kind of treats that make for happy occasions with family and friends. Sue Lawrence is often called the 'Queen of Baking'; her passion for the subject, and her knowledge of Scottish cookery, are legendary. In her new book, she includes easy recipes for the new and now such as Ciabatta and Ricotta Citrus Cake, as well as the old favourites like Victoria Sponge. Catering for every kind of cook, be they an Aga-lover or a bread-machine devotee, this is a must for everyone's kitchen shelf.
