The Violet Bakery Cookbook (English Edition) Formato Kindle
This book is about making baking worth it: simple to cook and satisfying to eat. Wholesome and indulgent - these are recipes you'll want to make again and again.
The Violet Bakery is a cake shop and café in Hackney, east London. The baking is done with simple ingredients including wholegrain flours, less refined sugars and the natural sweetness and muted colours of seasonal fruits. Everything is made in an open kitchen for people to see. Famed for its exquisite baked goods, Violet has become a destination.
Owner Claire Ptak uses her Californian sensibility to devise recipes that are both nourishing and indulgent. With real thought about taste and using the purest ingredients, she has created the most flavoursome iterations of classic cakes, as well as new treats for modern palates.
Discover the recipes behind the bakery that made Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's wedding cake.
Over 100 recipes include Cinnamon Buns, Mozzarella, Rosemary and New Potato Tarts, Butterscotch Blondies and Loganberry-vanilla Birthday Cake.
"While the recipes in her book are unusual and inventive, they’re also incredibly tasty." —Cree LeFavor, New York Times
"Violet Bakery promises to be a doozy: at her uber-popular London bakery, pastry chef Claire Ptak serves up all the beautiful cakes and biscuits anyone could ask for." —Paula Forbes, Epicurious
"Pastry Chef Claire Ptak has hit the nail on the head with her London bakery serving up delightful treats that have garnered a cult following (in that ever so civilized British way) in the UK and beyond." —Meghan Markle, The Tig
"Ms. Ptak, a pastry chef who once worked at Chez Panisse, applies a modern, seasonal and decidedly Californian sensibility to the proper British baked goods in her London bakery. [...] They are just the kind of intriguing yet unfussy sweets I can see making all year long as the different ingredients come in and out of season." —Melissa Clark, New York Times
"Claire is one of my all-time favorite cake-makers, and all her baking is seasonal, beautiful, achievable, real, and of course, totally delicious.” —Jamie Oliver
“A work of beauty. These gorgeous recipes are lovely and nourishing—you’ll want to stay home baking all day.” —April Bloomfield
"...I found Claire Ptak's new book, The Violet Bakery Cookbook, to be a breath of fresh air. Claire's philosophy? Flavor first, without exception. Yes, she offers recipes that are gluten-free, vegan, and made with foraged ingredients, but her book doesn't fit any one of these schools of thought. Claire bakes for flavor." —Meredith Swinehart, Gardenista --Questo testo si riferisce alla hardcover edizione.

Mornings at Violet are my favorite time. I am a morning person; I always have been. I love anything baked in the morning for breakfast, and I would easily eat cake for breakfast every day if I didn’t know any better. I do keep a jar of my quinoa granola at home and love to serve it with a good goat’s or sheep’s milk yogurt as much as with cow’s milk yogurt. Many days I simply have a banana or a piece of sourdough or rye toast for my own breakfast. Sometimes it’s a boiled egg. At Violet we serve generous slices of sourdough with salted butter, seasonal jam, and raw almond butter with sea salt. We get a cold-pressed almond butter from Cornwall that is so sweet and almondy that I prefer it to a toasted variety.
My favorite recipe in this section is possibly the cinnamon bun—a quick and easy bun that melts in your mouth. Every Sunday my friends Sylvia and Jo and I get cinnamon buns and coffees from the bakery and head up to Hackney Marshes with our dogs. A long walk in the wild fields that are also home to many of the ingredients I like to forage for is the perfect way to end the hectic London week.
The recipes in this section are a selection of breakfast items from across a year at Violet. I have included my favorite fruit and muffin or scone pairings from each season, but you can of course substitute here and there where appropriate, depending on what is best at the market.
Buckwheat, apple, and crème fraîche scones
Buckwheat flour is one of my favorite flours to bake with. It has a very strong flavor, so it works best when mixed with other flours. It is also gluten free. In this recipe I’ve added a combination of spelt and oat flours to bolster the buckwheat. Spelt and oat are flavorful, but when mixed with buckwheat, they take a backseat. The spelt has enough gluten to carry the scones and yet leave them with a very appealing crumbly texture. The grated apple is sweet and moist and marries perfectly with the crème fraîche. For more on flours, read my pantry section (see page 224).
Makes 12 large scones
150g (1½ cups) fine spelt flour
(see page 40), plus more for rolling
100g (⅔ cup) whole grain spelt flour
175g (1⅔ cups) oat flour
225g (1⅓ cups plus 2 tablespoons)
1½ teaspoons baking soda
1 tablespoon baking powder
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons salt
100g (½ cup) light or dark
1 tablespoon orange zest
1 teaspoon lemon zest
250g (1 cup plus 1 tablespoon)
cold unsalted butter, cut into
1-cm (½-inch) cubes
300g (1¼ cups) crème fraîche
500g (18 ounces) grated apple
(5 or 6 tart apples such as
Discovery, Gravenstein, Cox’s
Orange Pippin, or Granny Smith)
1 egg beaten with 2 tablespoons
milk, for the egg wash
Preheat the oven to 200°C/390°F (180°C/355°F convection). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Combine all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl along with the zests and whisk together well. Using a pastry cutter, the back of a fork, or a mixer, cut in the cubes of butter until they are the size of large peas.
Stir together the crème fraîche and grated apple. Mix this into the flour and butter mixture until it barely holds together. Turn out on to a flour-dusted surface and pat roughly into a square. Let the dough rest for 5 minutes, then flatten it to about 2.5cm (1 inch) thick with a rolling pin. Fold it in half so that you have a rectangle. Then fold it in half again into a small square. Let it rest for 7 minutes, then roll it into a square about 4cm (1½ inches) thick.
Use a sharp knife to cut the square into three long pieces. Cut each log into two and then each square into two triangles. Place on the lined baking sheet (or wrap in plastic wrap and store in the freezer), brush with the egg wash, and bake for about 35 minutes, or until golden brown.
These are best eaten on the day you bake them. --Questo testo si riferisce alla hardcover edizione.

I'm glad I did. The recipes are somewhat rustic in style with a slightly Californian feel due to the Author being American but its a lovely book, lots of pictures and it is a book which I will use again and again.
That said there is actually loads in here that I will be baking as time goes on. I'm looking forward to trying them.
