The Violet Bakery Cookbook, Claire Ptak


Jamie Oliver calls Claire Ptak his favourite London cake maker for good reason. A California native, Ptak moved to London after a stint at Berkeley's Chez Panisse, and opened Violet Bakery, one the city's most celebrated bakeries (Ptak was comissioned to make the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's 2018 wedding cake). In her cookbook, Ptak uses her Californian sensibility to create recipes that are both nourishing and indulgent. With a careful eye to taste and using the purest ingredients, she includes over 100 recipes for biscuits, cinnamon rolls, deep dark chocolate butterscotch brownies, and several showstoppers, including a chocolate soufflé cake
