Marguerite Patten, during a long lifetime in the kitchen until her death at the age of 99 in 2015, was the doyenne of British cookery. She began her cookery career as a Home Economist for the Ministry of Food, hence many, many decades of experience went in to writing this book and it shows. She shares her wealth of knowledge and her tried and tested recipes for cakes large and small, biscuits, breads, pizzas and pastries. Baking was Marguerite’s most natural culinary territory and she starts by explaining the equipment and the basic techniques, as well as what to do if things go wrong. From different types of flour, to what utensils you need or can do without, to the meaning of creaming and how to fold ̶ all the traditional terminology is explained so that you can read and get started. There are no glossy photographs in this handy little manual but as her tone is friendly, reassuring, straightforward but factual you will find all the instructions you need to guide you to success every time. She covers not only family favourites such as Walnut cake, teacakes and buns but more modern popular cakes such as muffins. The book has been planned to introduce the pleasures of baking in such a way that even a beginner will achieve successful results under the expert guidance of Britain’s still much loved cookery writer.

Vegan cooking without eggs using the magic of chickpea water From the Latin aqua (water) and faba (beans), aquafaba is the cooking liquid found in tinned beans and other legumes like chickpeas or the liquid left over from cooking your own. It can be used to replace egg whites in many sweet and savoury recipes. Its unique mix of starches, proteins, fibre and sugars, which are left in the water after cooking, gives aquafaba a wide range of emulsifying, foaming, binding and thickening properties, making it the perfect ingredient in vegan cooking or recipes for those who have egg allergies. It’s amazing to think that this precious liquid that we all threw down the sink could have such incredible properties? This is a real culinary revolution. The authors give all the secrets of aquafaba; how to make your own at home with just chickpeas and water and then how to use it in a dazzling array of recipes. Aquafaba beaten with a whisk produces a mountain of snowy white, giving volume to your muffins, and binding in your pasta. At last for vegans, lemon meringue pie, mousses, mayonnaise, macaroons and meringues are on the menu. Sébastien and Laura have thought of everything. Having created your aquafaba there are even a collection of recipes at the end of the book which use those cooked chickpeas to make hummus, falafels and curries.
