Hardie Grant Gift
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.
The pages of Beatrix Bakes are filled with authentic photography that works as a stunning visual endorsement of Natalie's favorite treats. The recipes are divided across ten chapters: Crusts, Doughs, Pastries & Crusts; Tarts, Pies, A Crostata & a Galette; The Cake List; One in the Hand; Yeasted Bakes; Fruit-full; Creams, Custards, Fillings, Glazes and Buttercreams; and Finishing Touches. Peppered throughout are infographics, offering readers a visual (pie chart) guide to following their baking hearts.
'If ever a book was going to make you want to bake, this is it! So full of perfect instruction to allow everyone to shine and written in her beautifully quirky way with all the love that Nat pours into her baking.'
