For every two lovers of sweet baked treats, there is at least another who will take the gruyère gougère or the curry pastie every time, thank you. All Day Baking: Savoury, Not Sweet is a baking cookbook—at last—for them.
Its mission is to deliver comforting, inventive and wholegrain-forward ideas for pies, sausage rolls, pasties and myriad other mostly pastry-based recipes, alongside gutsy accompaniments that equip the reader with the tools to transform delicious bakes into nourishing any-time-of-day meals.
Author Michael James is a Michelin-restaurant chef by training who was drawn early to the art, precision, and satisfaction of baking. In All Day Baking, his second book, he turns his attention to the pasties of his UK childhood, the pies he creates today for his young family, and the quiches, sausage rolls, palmiers and galettes that have earned him a cultish following around the world. As well, he delivers a master class in pastry—from puff to rye to vegan and gluten-free—gifting readers a foundation knowledge that sets them on a path to their own freewheeling baking adventures.
