    Review quote
    One passionate baklava-lover is Gaitri Pagrach-Chandra, who has just published a wonderful and unusual baking book, Warm Bread and Honey Cake (Pavilion, ?25). This is the book to hunker down with at the kitchen table on a winter?s day, only to emerge hours later smelling of nutmeg and honey. Sunday Telegraph
