    I want to show you how baking works. I want to prove how easy baking can be.

    Whether you want light cakes, squidgy brownies, perfect pastry, stress-free macarons or mountainous meringues, this book features a mini-masterclass for each one.

    Everything's split up into wee, simple steps. There's no faff and you don't need any expensive equipment. You don't even need a sieve.

    And for baking veterans, this book tells you why you're doing what you've been doing all these years.

    Here’s to baking that just works.

He was runner-up on Great British Bake Off 2012. He learnt to bake with his granny, growing up in the Shetland Isles. James is studying medicine at the University of Glasgow. This is his first book.
