Of the books by GBBO contestants, this is easily one of my favorites. As much as I like Luis Troyano''s and Francis Quinn''s books for inspriation, I use this book a lot more often — in no small part due to the savory recipes ( sausage rolls! ) it contains. The recipes are classified by difficulty and there are enough well written basic recipes here that I would not hesitate to recommend this an excellent first cookbook for a complete beginner. It''s hardly a book just for beginners, but this is one area where it differentiates itself from a lot of other cookbooks.

I selected this book because from the show, I suspected Richard would have really well thought out and creative flavors as well as detailed recipes and that is exactly what I got! As a plus, it is also has a great sense of fun and beautiful pictures. I want to bake it all! So far up to three "Bakes" and the flavors have been even better than I imagined. There are issues with UK to US translations (corn flour equals corn starch for thickening) and you definitely need a good scale that weighs grams. However, with the internet it is pretty easy to translate. I like to cook, but my baking is more likely to be muffins than cream puffs. I just made it through the rather complicated process of making profiteroles (UK for cream puffs) with puff pastry and Bailey''s Irish Cream filing and dark chocolate top. It all worked due to the careful instructions and I don''t think I have ever been prouder of anything I''ve baked. I''ve also made two bread recipes and they have been great as well. I highly recommend this book! You can check out Richard Burr''s website to get more information and a feel for his recipes if you want. Yum!!!

Love Richard and love the details in describing technique
Reviewed in the United States on June 6, 2017
Love Richard and love the details in describing technique. I bought Chetna''s book too, and consult it for flavors while toggling over to Richard''s for technical explanations. I am glad I already owned a digital kitchen scale as it makes the British measurements a breeze.

Absolutely BEAUTIFUL book! My guy and I binge-watch the Great British Bake Off on Netflix, so I ordered him this as a birthday gift. We have yet to try a recipe, but the style is lovely.

I just bought a metric scale, so cooking from this book became much easier to do. He''s a clever baker and I wish him luck on future cookbooks and in his construction business.

Buy a kitchen scale, it''s worth it.

Every recipe my family has made from this book has turned out beautifully. We love his sense of humor and this has become one of our favorite recipe books, which is saying a lot because we cook/bake a lot.

The recipes are good but the food looks burnt which I dislike and the quality of the photographs is poor. We eat with our eyes too!
