'Beatrix Bakes' embraces the unparalleled joys of baking seasonally and creatively. It invites you to choose your own adventure with unique features that inspire you to mix-and-match and create magic out of even the worst baking fails and to celebrate indulgence, slowing down and being in the (sweetest) moment.
Nat Paull's recipes are inspired by classics the world over, but they are irreverent too. In this book, she delights in showing readers that once they get the foundations right, the truest magic will come from a willingness to play (with the insurance of her many clever ideas and back-up plans in their apron pocket ).
For example, 'The Cheesecake That You Will Love The Most' presents options for a crumb base, a bought biscuit base, no base, a sponge base and a failed cookie base And from there, ideas for toppings from sour cream to crumb, to fruit bits.
About the Author:
Natalie Paull has been baking and loving all things sweet for more than twenty-five years. She started cooking in professional kitchens at the age of eighteen and spent her formative years working with Australian food luminaries Maggie Beer and Stephanie Alexander. Nat opened the cultish but tiny blink-and-you'll-miss-it 'Beatrix Bakes' in inner-city Melbourne in 2011. Crowds line up in the rain to secure a slice (or more!) of the day's ever-colorful and delicious offerings.
In following her heart and baking the cakes she loves to eat, Nat has established a reputation for melding the traditional pillars of cake baking with her distinct brand of irreverent innovation. Also, she eats a lot of cake. Every day.
