Review quote

The visceral appeal of her sourdough variations (which run to 40 pages), duck and pork pie or sweet olive oil bread with grapes is enough to turn any kitchen into a Pocket Bakery -- Christopher Hirst THE INDEPENDENT I love a recipe that does what it says on the tin, and Rose's scrumptious soda bread certainly did that. What's more, it went down a storm in the office and all with very little exertion on my part. I'm looking forward to working my way through the rest of her lovely book over the coming weeks www.sainsburysmagazine.co.uk Written in the same no-nonsense, reassuring tone of her demos, the recipes are delicious and easy to follow... a cookery book with a heart. THE LADY Rose Prince started The Pocket Bakery in her home kitchen to help her children earn their pocket money, and it's grown into a thriving business. This book is a lovely guide to making all sorts of bread, pastries, cakes and biscuits. CHOICE Rose tells the story and shares the recipes from the home business she set up to help her children earn pocket money, and gain skills and confidence.
