Excerpts-
  • From the book Introduction

    As first loves go, I have many. We all have many.

    For fifteen-year-old me, it was the Backstreet Boys, who I was going to meet one day (so I told myself) and I would marry Kevin, though not before all five of them battled to win my love! Even now, at thirty- five, they still send my heart aflutter because out of all the bands that fifteen-year-old girl could have loved, they were the first.

    But back here in real life, away from the land of make-believe and distant teenage dreams, I have had the joy of many weird and wonderful first loves. Becoming a proper older sister, when my baby brother was born, my first taste of maternal, yet not technically maternal, love. That was a first love of many to come. My first real pet, Hira the cat, she loved me like tuna and I loved her like I love chips. Becoming an aunt for the very first time, that rush of connection—we share the same DNA and I didn’t even have a hand in making him. That was a first love.

    My first secondhand bike I shared with my sisters; her name was Bluebird and she was blue, rusty, with white tires and cost my dad 25 cents from a Sunday market. I loved that bike, but that unpadded seat did not love me! My first pair of roller skates, yes they were hand-me-downs and I grew out of them pretty quickly, but they rolled me to places beyond the parameters set by parental guidance, not far but far enough, so my blades I loved.

    Finding love, actual real love, nothing like anyone else’s and all our own. Real, first, true, actual love. And children: real people, growing inside me, waiting to be met. You would think that first love of seeing one’s child would change, fade, or lessen with each subsequent child, but no. It’s still there, first love, fresh love, new love, every single time, with every single child.

    And then of course there is cake. Yes, cake.

    You may ask, how can cake sit here in this list? This list of monumental events and material memories, where does cake fit here? Like everything on my list of first loves, baking came into my life at a particular point, but unlike my memories of boy bands, roller- blades, and pets, which sit somewhere in “things that once were,” baking is right here with me still. With my husband, with my children, with my family. Baking has become such a massive part of who I am that there is no denying it. I live it, I breathe it, I whisk, stir, measure, and bake it! For goodness’ sake, I dream about it! I really do.

    Baking is my first love.

    I didn’t quite realize it when as a teenager I baked a cake for my sister’s pre-wedding party. A simple cake, sandwiched together with sticky jam and groaning under the sheer weight of thick white fondant and a hideous fondant groom all dressed in his fondant finery. I didn’t see it when I did a GCSE in Food Studies a few years later and designed an entire Pokémon Cake, with marbled red-and-white layers, sandwiched with jam and covered in a colored fondant, shaped and cut carefully to create an actual “Poké Ball.” The teacher said, “You’re really good at baking. Ever considered going to catering college?” I’m also good at tying my shoelaces, so who cares?! I thought. I just wanted an A in Food Studies, and that I got. But still nothing—the connection wasn’t there. Whatever it is I have now, whatever I feel now, it didn’t ignite, it didn’t even spark.

    We had an oven at home, but it was full of pans; it wasn’t used for baking, just for storing greasy deep-frying pans, and I never really saw it any...

    Starred review from June 7, 2021
    Hussain (Time to Eat), winner of the Great British Baking Show in 2015 and host of the Nadiya Bakes Netflix series, shares her favorite bakes in her stunning and scrumptious latest. She writes that “baking is my first love,” and that sentiment clearly comes through in the impressive array of appetizing cakes, tarts and pies, breads, and cookies within. From turmeric and ginger diamonds to a mango and coconut yogurt cake with German buttercream, Hussain’s recipes balance rich flavors with her trademark precision, though she lets things slide here and there. (“I am forever getting involved in the what-goes-first debate... though... as long as neither is left off, I’m a happy girl.”) While ingredients are easy to find, her combinations are decidedly European; Tutti-frutti pavlova (“a chewy meringue nest”), tottenham cake doused with hot custard, and covered-all-over lamington cake may not be readily available in American bakeries, though that doesn’t preclude their universal appeal. Other mouthwatering options include her “money can’t buy you happiness” brownies and a chicken, brie, cranberry, and pink pepper pithivier that’s at once airy and decadent. Hussain also includes notable chapters on no-bake bakes—ideal for summer months—and savory bakes, perfect for lunches or dinners. The star baker’s fans will no-doubt delight in these stellar offerings.

    This new cookbook from Great British Baking Show winner Hussain (Time To Eat: Delicious Meals for Busy Lives) seeks to offer "Americanized recipes for sweet treats" including some of her favorite recipes, "traditional, twisted, and everything in between." On this, Hussain certainly delivers. The pages of this beautifully photographed book contain recipes for the unusual (Matcha and Kiwi Hurricane Roll), the comforting (Portuguese Custard Tarts), and the reimagined (Mint Choc-Chip Nanaimo Bars), as well as many photos of the author in the process of baking and constructing her favorite treats. The recipes themselves are detailed and well-written; the inclusion of measurements in cups and grams is particularly helpful. While this cookbook is packed with photos, not every recipe is accompanied by an image of the final dish. With some recipes having almost a dozen photos and others having none, the book sometimes feels a bit unbalanced, but that shouldn't deter home cooks from attempting these appetizing treats that will satisfy the entire family. VERDICT Like in her previous cookbooks, Hussain's recipes are filled with flavor and creativity while also being effortlessly attainable by home bakers.--Siobhan Egan, Barrington P.L., RI
