Something Sweet is Great British Bake Off Winner Sophie Faldo's guide to achieving impressive, beautiful and delicious patisserie without the need for a commercial kitchen or an expensive patisserie diploma. It will talk through, in a step-by-step way, how to make a delectable repertoire of cakes, pastries, tarts, desserts, biscuits and sweets.

Each recipe is based on a French or Italian classic but always with a twist ensuring that every recipe is original and has Sophie's style stamped on it and making it different from other patisserie books.

Sophie was born in London and grew up in Suffolk. After gaining a Bachelor's degree from The University of Manchester and a Master's degree from The University of Toulouse, both in Psychology, she was selected to attend the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. She commissioned as an Officer in the Royal Artillery where she served all over the world, including Afghanistan. After leaving the Regular Army, she worked as a surveillance consultant, personal trainer and Alpine ski touring instructor before applying for The Great British Bake Off. Since winning the Great British Bake Off in 2017, Sophie has worked as pastry chef on stages at 1 Michelin starred restaurant, the Glasshouse under chef Berwyn Davis and at 2 Michelin starred restaurant Le Manoir aux Quat' Saisons under World-renowned pastry chef, Benoit Blin. She has curated a special afternoon tea at London's 5 star hotel, Jumeriah Carlton Tower to celebrate 50th anniversary of Laurent Perrier cuvee rose and had recipes and projects published in numerous publications including The Telegraph and The Mail on Sunday. Sophie has turned her hand to banquet catering, preparing dessert for 75 people at a VIP dinner alongside Celebrity Masterchef winner Angellica Bell and among her many recent commissions, she was honoured to be asked to make a special 9-tiered cake to celebrate the 80th anniversary of HMS Belfast. Sophie is delighted to be a charity ambassador for Gt Ormond Street Hospital and particularly for Combat Stress, a charity with works with veterans who suffer from mental health issues and PTSD, a cause which is very close to her heart. As well as her passion for baking, Sophie also loves sport. She has previously held National Age-group titles in both Rowing and Track Cycling. She is currently training for the stunt register, is an ambassador for the Spartan Race obstacle course races and continues to serve as an officer in the Army Reserve. Sophie specialises in celebration cakes, chocolaterie and fine patisserie and has an interest in alternative grains, sugar-free baking and performance foods.
