Battenberg out of hell anyone? Bake in Black is a recipe book with a twist. The twist being the combination of food and music. Bake in Black started life as a blog from a kitchen in east London and was written by a musician and food journalist. Each recipe was created whilst listening to records, aiming to capture the essence of the bands whose music inspires the bake.
The music the recipes are based on is straight from my husband's iPod and he loves puns, so was impressed with the wonderful attention to detail in the book. It's the kind of music I hadn't had much contact with until I met my husband, but I now know a fair few Pantera songs!
With my sister over from San Francisco and my mum up from Wales, I decided to try out the smoke on the rosewater gluten free recipe as they are both coeliac.
Next up I am going to attempt the Nirvana cheesecake, aptly named 'Big Cheese (cake)'.
Bake in Black is available at musicroom.com for £14.99.
Disclosure: I received a copy of Bake in Black for the purpose of review. This had no impact on my post, which is honest and fair.
