The Art of Baking Blind
There are many reasons to bake: to feed; to create; to impress; to nourish and sometimes, it has to be said, to perfect. But often we bake to fill a simple hunger. We bake to love and be loved.
Kathleen Eaden, The Art of Baking, 1966.
1966 and Kathleen Eaden writes The Art of Baking, her guide to nurturing a family through the most exquisite pastries and cakes. Now, the search is on to find the new Mrs Eaden. And each of the five contestants has their own reason to bake.
As alliances form, and secrets emerge, making the choicest choux bun seems the least of their concerns. For they will learn – as Mrs Eaden did before them – that while perfection is possible in the kitchen, it’s very much harder in life.
