The most beautiful cookbook was given to me yesterday. Someone traveling from London was kind enough to carry along Red Velvet Chocolate Heartache to California. {thank you!}
...
So far I have learned that a swede is a rutabaga, a courgette is a zucchini, caster sugar is very fine sugar and that grams will need to be converted, so possibly a scale would be nice. I am deciding between the Lemon and Lavender Drizzle Cake or the Coffee and Walnut Courage Cake, to make first.
...
Maybe the baking will begin tomorrow... in the meantime this cookbook is being read from cover to cover, notes scribbled on a pad, photographs admired and visions of baked goods adorned in pale pink rose buds atop vintage plates lulls me to sleep.

beautiful book!!

When I moved to england I was so confused about there being no recipes with "cups"

Then I found a ton of cute vintage scales and now I love baking by weight
