'I'm so excited about this beautiful book. Delicious, cozy recipes that are pure comfort on a plate’ Fearne Cotton
Secondary school teacher and pub landlord's daughter Candice Brown stole the show with her amazing bakes and weekly lipstick change in The Great British Bake Off tent of 2016.
This year the Sunday Times columnist will be bringing out her first cookbook - all about home comforts. These are the recipes Candice learned to bake from her nan and mum, recipes close to her heart, that should be served up as a big generous slice - and preferably on a vintage plate if you have one.
Candice's recipes are easy to make, no nonsense and hearty. She has a recipe up her sleeve for every occasion - for baking with kids, birthday parties for all ages, Christmas, afternoon tea, quick savoury bakes for weeknights and fancier recipes for weekends.
Candice Brown is the winner of The Great British Bake Off 2016.
Born in North London, Candice grew up in the pubs that her parents ran– and that she famously immortalized in gingerbread for her most talked about showstopper – always chipping in when needed, be it pulling pints or mopping floors.
With her degree in Sport, PE and Community Studies, Candice was a secondary school teacher when she applied for GBBO and managed to juggle planning her fabulous bakes and filming the show with teaching lively teenagers. Candice is currently taking a break from teaching to explore new adventures in flour.
