Staff Pick: Mary Berry’s Baking Bible

Beloved judge of the first seven seasons of The Great British Baking Show and British national treasure Mary Berry has collected her most classic recipes for our baking pleasure. If you're a fan of the show, try your hand at her famous technical challenges such as the Victoria Sandwich, Swiss Roll, Madeira Cake, Mokatines, and many, many more. For an added challenge, try doing it in the time given on the show! She includes handy conversion charts (helpful since she uses British measurements and baking terms), tips on equipment and methods, and a guide to ingredients.

So far I've made her Classic Sticky Gingerbread and Very Best Scones, both of which tasted amazing. The gingerbread is particularly good - my dad didn't get what all my hype was about when he first tasted it, but then he discovered he couldn't stop eating it! I look forward to making Banoffi Pie, Shortbread, Key Lime Pie, and so many more of these delicious recipes. If you love The Great British Baking Show, or just love baking in general, check out this cookbook!
