James uses supermarket flour and instant yeast - you can save money by making your own bread. You don't even have to knead! It just takes a bit of patience and a few simple techniques.
Using step by step photos, James guides the reader through the how-to of dough making and shaping, with recipes ranging from basic loaves through flatbreads, sourdoughs, sweet doughs, buns, doughnuts, focaccia and pretzels. Inspiring and simple to follow, with James's no-nonsense advice and tips, this book will mean you never buy another sliced white loaf again.

The SuperJam Cookbook

Fraser Doherty (Author)

SuperJam is a delicious range of jams and marmalades created by young entrepreneur Fraser Doherty. They're 'super' because they're made with 'superfruits', such as cranberries and blueberries, and fruit juice rather than sugar, meaning they're healthier than your average pot of jam.

As well as being packed full of recipes for jams, marmalades, chutneys and jellies, the book offers more unusual ideas for spreads, such as Banana and Rum Curd, Dulce de Leche and Chilli Jam.
