From the Publisher
In an ocean of baking books this book is something new. It is an
aspirational, yet very achievable, collection of recipes to
guide you through baking in a more nourishing way. Food stylist
Amber Rose found a lot of the baking recipes out there tend to
have the same flavor combinations used over and over again with
refined white flour and white sugar as a staple. The
heroes of her recipes are the seasonal fruits and ancient
flours (spelt, rye, buckwheat and nut flours) used as an
alternative to so much refined sugar and gluten, to bring more
depth of flavor and texture and to create a healthier baked good.
This is a book that covers all occasions, all seasons and all
moods, bringing heritage ingredients into the modern kitchen.
Using readily available fruit, honey, nuts and flowers to give a
more natural kind of baked good, some of the recipes are sugar- and
wheat-free and in some instances even dairy-free. Other recipes
call for sugar and flour but it''s always in a way that brings
to the life the ingredients being used. Learning to cook and
bake with the seasons helps to support our natural rhythms and
brings endless delight to the taste buds as well as helping us to
be a little more thrifty, which is an important part of
feeding ourselves and our families. Enjoy baking a Spiced
Carrot Cake with a crumbly topping; make Berry Good Fairy Cakes for
the kids, create a Coconut & Passionfruit Tart for a dinner
party, or try the healthy Zesty Oat Cookies with an orange zest
pastry. Baking is always indulgent and comforting but, with Amber,
it can be nourishing too.
About the Author
Amber Rose, described by You magazine as "Britain''s most glamorous baker," grew up in New Zealand, surrounded by heritage fruit and vegetables. She has travelled the world, cooking in cafes and restaurants. She was a private chef to Sadie Frost before becoming a doula and cook to new mothers. She is also a food stylist, based in London.
From Amber Rose''s Love Bake Nourish, these ginger-peach wholegrain muffins are sweetened with honey and topped with a surprisingly good gingery-peach combination that soaks into the top of each muffin as it bakes.
