When Peter Sawkins won the Great British Bake Off in November 2020, it was the culmination of an amazing journey that began when he started watching the show aged 12. Just 8 years later, he won the coveted GBBO cake-stand with his imaginative, distinctly Scottish twists on baking classics, his unsurpassed flair for flavour and his witty, self-deprecating honesty. And, of course, his sheer passion for baking. Now, in PETER BAKES, Peter reveals the secrets to his baking success, his brilliant recipes and gluten-free options, and his trademark tricks including how to listen to your cakes, how to enhance your skills and how to develop the confidence to trust your senses in the kitchen. All of which will help you make everything from showstopping cakes and perfect patisserie to yummy puddings that’ll bring a smile to everyone’s faces.
