Synopsis

Louise Johncox comes from a long line of bakers and confectioners. As a child she would sit on a flour tin at her father's side and eat whatever was fresh from the oven - a hot bread roll or a fluffy piece of sponge - and when her father, a master baker, retired, Louise decided it was time to capture his wisdom and baking expertise, writing down his recipes for the first time and preserving his magical legacy for her children. In The Baker's Daughter she weaves delightful childhood memoirs of life in her family tea shop wit her father's recipes, honed by over forty years of instinct and experience. From classic cream cakes and traditional buns, to celebration cakes, handcrafted chocolates and her father's signature cream meringues, these recipes come laden with the sights, smells and warmth of the tea room and bakehouse.

Louise Johncox was born in Weybridge, Surrey, where her father worked as a baker and chocolatier in the family tea shop from 1958 to 2000. She comes from a long line of pastry chefs originating from Poschiavo on the Swiss Italian border. Instead of following in the family tea shop tradition, Louise trained as a journalist, and writes for publications including The Times, Sunday Times, Telegraph and Guardian. Louise lives in Surrey and has two children, Lara and Joe.
