The Pocket Bakery by Rose Prince
The Pocket Bakery will contain bread and baking recipes, easy-to-follow techniques and secrets from Rose Prince’s family bakery in London. Beginning as an idea to help her children earn their pocket money and gain a lifelong skill, Rose Prince, along with daughter Lara and son Jack, began opening up their Battersea home every Saturday morning to sell freshly made bread. Trained in the art of sourdough by guru Giuseppe Mascoli, owner of the famous Franco Manca in Brixton market, the Pocket Bakery has gone from strength to strength, awakening a passion for all things baking-based in Rose and her teenage children. Today, it is a thriving local bakery with a big future that produces high quality and delicious artisan baking from brioche loaves in flower pots to scrumptious teatime cakes and biscuits.
Rose Prince has been writing and campaigning about food for over 15 years. She started her career working as a chef in the test kitchen of Notting Hill’s ‘Books for Cooks’ alongside Clarissa Dixon Wright. She then moved on to report for BBC Radio 4’s Food Programme. Rose Prince currently writes two columns for The Daily Telegraph and regular recipe features for the Telegraph magazine. She is the author of three cookery books, The New English Kitchen (2005), The New English Table (2008) and Kitchenella (2010), which was shortlisted for a Galaxy Award. In 2006 she wrote The Savvy Shopper, a book based on The Daily Telegraph column of the same name.
The Pocket Bakery will be published on 7/11/2013 by Weidenfeld & Nicolson
