……. and when he came home, he handed me a gift….. this wonderful book:
“A Piece of Cake” by Leila Lindholm (Photo:here)
The book: “Leilas bakbok “a piece of cake” contains over 200 delicious recipes for breads and pastries. Leila’s idea was to make a bakbok with everything from baguettes and mother’s crumpets to grandmother’s crisp blueberry pie, American wedding cake and peanut butter cupcakes. She has been inspired of her heroes in the kitchen……. her mother, grandmother and aunt Elsa. Leila’s many travels and above all, the time she lived in New York has influenced many of her beautiful and timeless pastries”.
It was love at first sight, when I saw the book on Pernillas kitchen shelf, when we were visiting her in Stockholm last weekend …. she got it as a gift last Christmas. I think I spent an hour looking at all the beautiful pictures…….. åhhhhhh…. I can’t wait the 4 weeks till I’m allowed to eat bread again….. so I can test all these delicious recipes.
But judge for yourself. You can browse the book if you visit this link
