Review

Do not read this book without a clean handkerchief and a full larder. I laughed, I cried, I baked gingerbread biscuits . . . Potts is a writer who clasps you to her floury bosom and wraps you in your apron strings. There is wit and warmth on every page. This is a book of courage, consolation and more custard than you can shake a whisk at (Laura Freeman, Times)

I cannot express how much I adored this book. It made me laugh, cry, salivate and, on no less than four occasions, resolve to learn patisserie and leave the criminal Bar. Olivia Potts has delivered a tender and beautifully written tour-de-force on the four tenets of the human experience; love, grief, hope and cake. If this is not the book of the summer, I will eat my wig. An absolute triumph (The Secret Barrister)

A heart-wrenching yet humorous portrayal of grief, a delicious collection of recipes, an inspirational tale of changing careers, and a feel good love story (Vogue)

An honest, brave and funny account of what it is to love, to lose love and how to make macarons (Red)

I loved it so much. It's funny, sharp, sad and full of clear observations about food. I laughed so much (and I cried) (Ella Risbridger, author of Midnight Chicken)

A brilliant, brave and beautiful book: funny and charming; utterly inspiring and life-affirming. I loved it (Olivia Sudjic)

Tender . . . filled with the comfort we all seek when dealing with grief (Stylist)

Potts writes powerfully about the nature of grief, yet she has the lightest of touches with her sensuous descriptions of food. A delightful read - and there are some terrific recipes in it, too (Daily Mail)

A heart-warming book about death and new beginnings that will delight cake lovers; it manages to be moving, funny and mouth-watering in equal measure - a difficult literary confection to master (Guardian)

Uplifting . . . tender (i)

Book Description

A moving, heart-warming and exquisitely funny memoir about one woman's journey from criminal barrister to p tissi re.
