A Half Baked Idea: Winner of the Fortnum & Mason’s Debut Food Book Award


WINNER OF THE FORTNUM & MASON’S DEBUT FOOD BOOK AWARD ‘A tender and beautifully written tour-de-force on 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 ‘An utterly beautiful, moving, bittersweet book on love and loss. I loved it’ DOLLY ALDERTON _____________________________________________________ Olivia Potts’ mother died when she just twenty-five. Stricken with grief, she did something life changing and rather ridiculous: she gave up a high-flying legal career to study at the notoriously difficult Le Cordon Bleu, despite not being able to cook. No one ever told Olivia you couldn’t bake your way to happiness – but could you? _______________________________________________ ‘A brilliant, brave and beautiful book: funny and charming; utterly inspiring and life-affirming’ Olivia Sudjic ‘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 ‘Funny, sharp and sad. I laughed so much (and I cried)’ Ella Risbridger, author of Midnight Chicken ‘An honest, brave and funny account of what it is to love, to lose love and how to make macarons’ Red
