For many people the trigger to bake is a particular occasion - a family gathering, a traditional celebration, a local festival, or even a change of season. Great British Bake Off: Celebrations which accompanies the new series of Great British Bake Off is a collection of recipes for every occasion to bake through the year. Divided into Cakes, Biscuits, Breads, Pies and Desserts each chapter will follow a loose narrative journey through the year, starting with January and finishing with Christmas. Looking at our long and rich baking heritage, Celebrations includes over 100 delicious recipes, from a Hogmanay Whisky Fruit and Nut Cake to a Bonfire Night Toffee Apple Pie, and from a Lemon Easter Sugar Biscuits to a Spiced Figgy Sponge Pudding. With recipes from the contestants which draw on their own favourite bakes, traditional favourites and new creations reflecting the way we bake today, as well as Mary and Paul's Showstoppers, Signature Bakes and Technical Challenges, the book is for anyone who likes to celebrate a special occasion by serving something home-made with love.
