A Half Baked Idea by Olivia Potts
And so she concocted a plan: she would begin a newer, happier life, filled with fewer magistrates and more macaroons. She left the bar and enrolled on the Diplôme de Pâtisserie at Le Cordon Bleu, plunging headfirst into the eccentric world of patisserie, with all its challenges, frustrations and culinary rewards - and a mind-boggling array of knives to boot.
Interspersed with recipes ranging from passionfruit pavlova to her mother's shepherd's pie, A Half Baked Idea is a heartbreaking, hilarious, life-affirming memoir about dealing with grief, falling in love and learning how to bake a really, really good cake.
