Reviews

Bake your way around the world with this comprehensive recipe book as your guide. The book also includes recipes that are wheat- and gluten-free and vegan so everyone can enjoy the fruits of your labours. - Bake School Magazine.

In The Global Bakery, author and baker Anna Weston highlights traditional baking recipes from around the globe in a way that is easy and approachable enough for even an amateur baker to tackle. - A Squared.

This is a great book to introduce you to every type of international cake! It's neat to see the different influences on the cake styles- locally abundant ingredients, and those sourced in from colonizers tastes, in some cases. If you have a foodie or a baker in the family, they'll love to get this book for Christmas, or any special occasion! - Bless Their Hearts Mom.

What a great idea for a cookbook: travel the world from your very own kitchen. Most of her recipes use authentic ingredients and cooking methods to create desserts that are close to what you might eat in the country where they originate. The recipes range from easy to challenging and include a handful that are vegan and gluten-free. - The Tampa Tribune.

The diversity of the world’s cakes are represented for the first time in one thoroughly researched volume. The amateur baker is taken on a journey across the continents visiting Cote d’Ivoire, Libya, Finland, Hungary, Azerbaijan, India, Cambodia, Papua New Guinea, USA, Colombia and many more countries along the way.

Working on the premise that every culture must have a favorite cake, author-baker Anna Weston started researching the wonders of baking in corners of the globe that she’s not likely to visit in the flesh. She soon discovered an amazing richness of cakes and found herself investigating cakes and delicacies that are well beyond the scope of most other books about baking – let alone her mother’s fund of knowledge.

With all tastes and occasions catered for, the recipes have been fully tested in a domestic kitchen and feature sumptuous photographs. The book includes a number of vegan and wheat & gluten free recipes. These are marked in the contents list and in the recipes.
