Broken heart? New job nerves? Whatever the problem, a brownie is always the solution.
Whether you prefer a rich fudgy brownie or a comforting cakey blondie, my second book offers 56 brownie-based solutions to all of life's challenges, big or small*.
From recipes to cheer you up, like the 'Lonesome Tonight' brownie (an indulgent concoction made from store cupboard staples like peanut butter and crumbled cookies), to bakes for celebration, such as the 'I Think I Love You' brownie (with raspberry cheesecake swirl) or even the 'Payday' brownie (a caramel confection inspired by Millionaire's shortbread), you'll find the perfect treat among these pages.
* I also included blondies in the party, as they do have a lot of fun.
You can buy The Brownie Diaries on Amazon or any good book store.
Made in London
My debut cookbook, Made in London, is published by Absolute Press, £26.
I've always been fascinated by cities' unique food cultures, and London has one of the richest food scenes in the world. In Made in London, I trace the city's edible journey from Tudor oyster peddlers and Victorian pie and mash shops, to the supper clubs and street food markets flourishing today.
The book features recipes invented in the city; such as the 18th century treat Chelsea buns (a favourite of King George II) and Omelette Arnold Bennett, created for the famous writer while staying at the Savoy Hotel. Alongside these are new dishes of my own creation, inspired by my eating adventures around the capital: such as a mouthwatering Pimm's and lemon curd trifle, an unusual goat's cheese and cherry tart and an easy twist on Indian restaurant Dishoom's iconic bacon naan, one of the best brunches in London. Plus histories, maps and useful lists galore.
