A cookbook by Great British Bake Off judge Paul Hollywood is clambering up the top 10 list of best-selling non-fiction hardbacks.
‘Paul Hollywood’s Pies & Puds’, published by Bloomsbury on October 24, ties in with the celebrity baker’s 20-episode TV series of the same name.
Episode 12 of the show will be screened tomorrow (Monday November 25) at 3.55pm on BBC One. In it. Paul sets out to prove that Britain’s pies and puddings are among the best in the world as he is joined by American baking boys Outsider Tart for a Great Transatlantic Bake Off. But when it comes to pies, Paul’s Scottish buffalo steak pie wins the day, and Paul discovers the ‘strawberry of the future’ in Kent.
