A combination of what baking means to a young girl whose life it changed and a selection of fantastic baking recipes, this book, with a few added extras, are the perfect gift for the baker in your life. And who can resist making a fresh loaf and sitting down with it – still warm from the oven – and adding a bit of raspberry jam to it.

About the book

Breadsong : How Baking Changed Our Lives by Kitty Tait, Al Tait 

Breadsong tells the story of Kitty Tait who was a chatty, bouncy and full-of-life 14 year old until she was overwhelmed by depression and anxiety and she withdrew from the world. Her desperate family tried everything to help her but she slipped further away from them. One day her dad Alex, a teacher, baked a loaf of bread with her and that small moment changed everything.

One loaf quickly escalated into an obsession and Kitty started to find her way out of the terrible place she was in. Baking bread was the one thing that made any sense to her and before long she was making loaves for half her village. After a few whirlwind months, she and her dad opened the Orange Bakery, where queues now regularly snake down the street.

Breadsong is also a cookbook full of Kitty’s favourite recipes, including:- the Comfort loaf made with Marmite, and with a crust that tastes like Twiglets- bitesize queue nibbles, doughnuts with an ever-changing filling to keep the bakery queue happy- sticky fika buns with mix-and-match fillings such as cardamom and orange- Happy Bread covered with salted caramel- cheese straws made with easy homemade ruff puff pastry- the ultimate brown butter and choc chip cookies with the perfect combination of gooey centre and crispy edges.
