In 2003 Grub Street published Julie Duff's first book, Cakes Regional & Traditional. The book was short listed for the prestigious Glenfiddich Award and was highly praised in the press especially by Nigel Slater and Tom Parker Bowles and has established itself as the classic work on British cakes.
Julie now follows that comprehensive work with an equally thorough and entertaining bible which has taken four years to research and write, by gathering together all the great cake recipes from around the world.
There are recipes from Europe, Scandinavia, the Middle East, the USA, the Caribbean, the Far East, Latin America, Australia, New Zealand, as well as ones from Iceland, South Africa, Patagonia and the Gulf States.
There are large cakes, small cakes, plain cakes, fancy cakes, light cakes, rich cakes, fruit cakes, spicy cakes, apple, orange and lemon cakes, coffee and chocolate cakes, iced cakes, layer cakes, sponge and yeasted cakes. Included are recipes for brownies, cupcakes, muffins, macaroons, cheesecakes, parkins, pound cakes, streusels, gingerbreads and shortbreads.
Julie Duff runs Church Farmhouse Cakes from her home in Croxton Kerriel, Lincolnshire and supplies some of the country's foremost shops with her highly praised confections. Since her first book was published she has been much in demand by the press for her cake making tips and her recipes. Last year she presented a series of regional cake recipes on Woman's Hour for five weeks.
'Those who already own one of Julie Duff's books on cakes and baking will no doubt be delighted to discover she has now brought out Cakes from Around the World, which includes some superb recipes, including the Austrian doughnuts, Krappen, which if eaten while warm and tossed in brown sugar are simply scrumptious. Her chocolate brownies from America are fantastic too.' Helen Peacocke, The Oxford Times
'More exotic delights can be found in the always reliable Julie Duff's Cakes From Around the World: easy to follow recupes with context, provenance and inspirational pics.' Elisabeth Luard, The Scotsman
'A comprehensive and fascinating collection, from Egyptian spiced chocolate cake to Sri lankan love cake.' Wedding Cake
