For the weekend that’s in it, I’m taking a look at Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache by Harry Eastwood.
Right first thing’s first: Harry is a woman. A very attractive woman who has a sweet tooth but a keen eye for her tiny waistline. Thus every recipe in this sinfully sweet-looking book contains ingredients from the vegetable garden. Sounds weird I know. But worth a shot. Sticky toffee pudding with parsnip or courgette and camomile cupcakes might not be to everyone’s taste but it’s an impressive and original approach to a baking book.
I’m not sure about the results but it’s a lovely-looking book and would make a great gift for any adventurous bakers in your life this Valentine’s Day!
