Poh Bakes 100 Greats
Poh Ling Yeow
‘I love baking so much I’ve been known to park myself in front of the oven to watch a cake cook, like television.’
Poh first fell in love with food by learning to bake as a nine year old – she remembers vividly her mum showing her the art of folding flour into her first sponge cake ‘just like so’ and the skill in lining a tin meticulously. Now, years after Poh’s meteoric rise to fame through MasterChef, and hosting her own television shows, Poh’s Kitchen and Poh & Co, she returns to her roots, with wooden spoon and mixing bowl in hand. Poh owns and runs Adelaide destination cafe and bakery Jamface, with her bestie, Sarah. She describes the Jamface baking philosophy as the love child between a Parisian patisserie and the Country Women’s Association. Here, she shares recipes for 100 of her favourite baked delights.
So take the afternoon off, fire up the oven, and join Poh in the meditative process of baking something truly great.
I think this has to be one of the best all round, accessible baking books of the year. It includes chapters on:
- Savoury Starters
- Bake Sale Beauties
- French Fundamentals
- Sweetie Pies & Tantalising Tarts
- Oldies But Goodies
- Thrills & Frills
- Adventure Bakes
- Trusty Tea Cakes
- Must Knows.
Included in the 100 recipes are some of my favourite foods including:
*Pecan Cinnamon Scrolls
*Basic Nut Praline
*Bienenstich –Bee Sting Cake
*Baked Camembert with Thyme, Garlic & Red Wine
*Hero No Need Crusty Bread
*Smoked Salmon & Zucchini Slice….
And many many more. I am sure you will find your new favourite in this book J
