Review by Library Journal Reviews

This new cookbook from Great British Baking Show winner Hussain (Time To Eat: Delicious Meals for Busy Lives) seeks to offer "Americanized recipes for sweet treats" including some of her favorite recipes, "traditional, twisted, and everything in between." On this, Hussain certainly delivers. The pages of this beautifully photographed book contain recipes for the unusual (Matcha and Kiwi Hurricane Roll), the comforting (Portuguese Custard Tarts), and the reimagined (Mint Choc-Chip Nanaimo Bars), as well as many photos of the author in the process of baking and constructing her favorite treats. The recipes themselves are detailed and well-written; the inclusion of measurements in cups and grams is particularly helpful. While this cookbook is packed with photos, not every recipe is accompanied by an image of the final dish. With some recipes having almost a dozen photos and others having none, the book sometimes feels a bit unbalanced, but that shouldn't deter home cooks from attempting these appetizing treats that will satisfy the entire family. VERDICT Like in her previous cookbooks, Hussain's recipes are filled with flavor and creativity while also being effortlessly attainable by home bakers.—Siobhan Egan, Barrington P.L., RI Copyright 2021 Library Journal.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

Hussain (Time to Eat), winner of the Great British Baking Show in 2015 and host of the Nadiya Bakes Netflix series, shares her favorite bakes in her stunning and scrumptious latest. She writes that "baking is my first love," and that sentiment clearly comes through in the impressive array of appetizing cakes, tarts and pies, breads, and cookies within. From turmeric and ginger diamonds to a mango and coconut yogurt cake with German buttercream, Hussain's recipes balance rich flavors with her trademark precision, though she lets things slide here and there. ("I am forever getting involved in the what-goes-first debate... though... as long as neither is left off, I'm a happy girl.") While ingredients are easy to find, her combinations are decidedly European; Tutti-frutti pavlova ("a chewy meringue nest"), tottenham cake doused with hot custard, and covered-all-over lamington cake may not be readily available in American bakeries, though that doesn't preclude their universal appeal. Other mouthwatering options include her "money can't buy you happiness" brownies and a chicken, brie, cranberry, and pink pepper pithivier that's at once airy and decadent. Hussain also includes notable chapters on no-bake bakes—ideal for summer months—and savory bakes, perfect for lunches or dinners. The star baker's fans will no-doubt delight in these stellar offerings. (July) Copyright 2021 Publishers Weekly.
