I’d happily spend eternity eating chef Calum Franklin’s pies. — Grace Dent ― Evening Standard

The book is a lattice of history and technique, it talks of flour and pastry and prepping, of tins and egg washing and all sorts of other things. The photographs stun, the writing has a certain modest style. There is a rather charming chapter dedicated to his team. Mostly, though, the book is incredibly helpful: followed carefully, you image even the most daunting creation is within grasping distance. In other words, he’s made it look easy. ― Evening Standard
