People who enjoy the cooking shows will probably appreciate The Art Of Baking Blind even more than I did. I enjoyed listening to the audiobook, even though it sounded familiar.

Sarah Vaughan has perfectly balanced the ingredients of this book.

Sarah Vaughan has perfectly balanced the ingredients of this book. Where the baking lends a warm and pleasant tone, this is brilliantly offset by the darker side of the narratives. Each of the stories is compelling. We Love This Book blog 5 out of 5. An amazing read. It makes you crave cake and it makes you want to devour the words, enjoying every morsel till it reaches the.

The Art of Baking Blind is the story of five amateur bakers who enter a competition to become the next Mrs Eadon. Kathleen Eadon was the wife of the owner of a posh chain of supermarkets and in the 1960s wrote her iconic recipe book, The Art of Baking. The five contestants each have something to prove by competing.

Light and ephemeral, sweet and buttery, it should melt on the tongue and leave guests pining for more. children may find these appealing. But the best of biscuits are more delicate. With an exquisitely curled brandy snap, a piped coffee kiss, a raspberry macaroon or a melting moment, the ordinary housewife can conjure up indulgence, refinement and elegance. She will delight those at her coffee mornings – and astound them with her skill. The rules are simple.

There are many reasons to bake: to feed; to create; to impress; to nourish; to define ourselves; and, sometimes, it has to be said, to perfect. But often we bake to fill a hunger that would be better filled by a simple gesture from a dear one. We bake to love and be loved. In 1966, Kathleen Eaden, cookbook writer and wife of a supermarket magnate, published The Art of Baking, her guide to nurturing a family by creating the most exquisite pastries, biscuits and cakes. Now, five amateur bakers are competing to become the New Mrs. Eaden. There's Jenny, facing an empty nest now that her family has flown; Claire, who has sacrificed her dreams for her daughter; Mike, trying to parent his two kids after his wife's death; Vicki, who has dropped everything to be at home with her baby boy; and Karen, perfect Karen, who knows what it's like to have nothing and is determined her facade shouldn't slip.

As unlikely alliances are forged and secrets rise to the surface, making the choicest pastry seems the least of the contestants' problems. For they will learn--as Mrs. Eaden did before them--that while perfection is possible in the kitchen, it's very much harder in life, in Sarah Vaughan's The Art of Baking Blind.

Part Betty Crocker and part MasterChef, this novel was a delight to read. Even though I had to keep searching for images of the featured desserts to be able to understand what each person was making, seeing the final product only made the descriptions come alive even more. Time and time again, I would smell the gingerbread, sugar, warm bread and other treats rising from the page and be instantly transported to the kitchen.

What I loved: Vicky, Jenny and Claire were such well rounded characters each battling the age old issue women face once they become mothers – putting their child’s needs over their own. No matter the age of the child (grown, toddler or a pre-teen) each woman has to come to terms with finding the balance between her needs and her child’s.

What I didn’t love: NO RECIPIES?????? 400 pages of the most delectable treats and not a single recipe. Seriously though, I wish the character of Mike would have been more developed – he was more of an afterthought instead of someone in the cooking competition. I would have loved to have gotten to know him outside of the weekend bake-offs.

What I learned: So much more about English desserts – I wish I had more of a sweet palate so I could sample Battenberg cake, lardy cake, or a magical moment biscuit.

Overall Grade: A-

I LOVE to watch cooking competitions on TV and so this novel seemed right up my alley. It was OK....but no single part of it fabulous enough for me to rate it very high.

First, the title threw me off..."baking blind" in competitions usually means that the judging is done without the judges knowing who cooked which dish which was not the case in this competition.

Unfortunately, while the characters were interesting, none of them were compelling enough for me to be actually mentally cheering for them to win. I wanted to see WHO won but didn't really care much either way.

There seemed to be a bit too much description of every single dish they made (and they made a LOT). I couldn't help but wonder if every single British dish required "egg wash."

Actually, I found the parts about the original baker (who has retired and the store is holding the competition to find a replacement) were very interesting as they were sprinkled throughout the book. In addition to her baking efforts, she writes a lot about her infertility.

I highly recommend reading The Art of Baking Blind. Sarah Vaughn is a wonderful storyteller. Her style reminds me of the late Mauve Binchey. I hope that in the future she expands upon the lives of at least a couple of this movel's characters because I'd like to see how their new-found famine and fortune will carry forth in their lives!

Loved this book. Judging by the title you may think you need to be a fan of food and baking but you would be wrong. The story is compelling to anyone who enjoys a good character development.

Full disclaimer - I am a home baker and love love love books on food, about food :)
This book was such a delicious treat, I enjoyed the individual stories, the recipes, the stories behind the recipes. The lone man in the book seemed a tad forlorn, I guess more time could have been devoted to his character development but overall, enjoyable book, pick it up for an enjoyable afternoon

Kinda reads like a soap opera! I wouldn't recommend it. If you just want a fluffy novel, this is the one.
