Publisher Description

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

_____________________________________________________

When Olivia Potts was just twenty five, her mother died. 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?
