About the Author
RUBY TANDOH is a weekly food columnist for the Guardian and has written for British Elle. At the age of twenty, she was the youngest ever contestant on The Great British Bake Off, where she impressed judges and viewers alike with her creative approach to ingredients and her focus on flavor over decoration. Tandoh lives—and bakes—in north London.
Heads up: The Chocolate Lime Mud Cake has only seven ingredients--including the pinch of salt....and the instructions are fairly simple: I am buying this baking book! And, there are so many more recipes like that. But the chocolate, and the lime, together; well, for me, it does not get any better.Then there are the Cherry Spelt (yeast) Loaves..... And rosemary in my pecan pie. And way, way more. The short blurb in bold face on this product page is absolutely correct, and sums up the book so well: "...a focus on charming, flavorful, and practical dishes...the pleasure of casual baking." This is truly a baking book worth working through--recipe by recipe. Even the Sweet Dough chapter of buns, doughnuts, coffee cakes and more--things I'm not usually interested in--is luring me, especially the Coconut Lime Loaf..... There is not a single one that I want to pass by. (Well, to be honest, I will pass on the fried doughnuts, the Danish rolls and the coffee cake.) And I'm afraid to make any of the crackers (but I will)....because I would want to keep them to myself and eat them all before company arrives. And this is all before the "Decadent Dessert" chapter with cheesecakes, meringues, custards and sponge puddings.-I Do Speed Limit
I have enjoyed every aspect of this book, from the ingredient and technique details, to Ruby’s personalized baking tips, to the recipes themselves. In Crumb you’ll find a variety of recipes familiar enough to feel manageable but with a taste that elevates it beyond common fare. A few ingredients required research - for the Chicken and Pale Ale pie, chicory is sold in the US as “Belgian endive,” and for most of the recipes superfine sugar can be tough to find and fairly pricey here, so a dedicated coffee or spice grinder could prove useful for making your own. Also please notice that all the bread recipes call for instant yeast, while most of us are used to working with Dry Active Yeast; she gives advice on adjusting accordingly but it will depend on your yeast, water, kitchen, etc., so if you plan to bake a lot it’s worth investing in a block of instant yeast to store in the freezer. I made the chocolate and hazelnut couronne with milk chocolate instead of white, which was extremely good - like a Nutella bread. The Sticky Toffee Pudding is an explosion of sweet and comforting flavors without being tough on the jaw or your teeth, while her chicken pie was such a hit it’s been put in frequent dinner rotation. I’ve got three more recipes lined up to try in the coming week and can’t wait!-Broget
I am an avid fan of TGBBO and I decided to buy Ruby's book. She is one of the best baker on the show and her book speaks her personality! I have tried couple of her recipes already with (it may not be perfect) success! This book is not the latest updated publication but it is the same as her other Crumb book. I think the difference (as what I read from other reviews) are the conversion of measurements, baking temp, cover of book, and the price—this book is cheaper. This book has the british measuring/oven gas/fan temp but it is not hard to convert into American household setting.I wrote the conversion on the book for my reference,This book is definitely a keeper.-Learningjeane
