A Second Helping:

More from Ladies, a Plate


In response to the enthusiastic reception for her bestselling cookbook Ladies, a Plate, Alexa Johnston has gathered together another tempting selection of traditional recipes for the home baker. A Second Helping has many more old favourites including Sponge Kisses, Melting Moments, Tan Squares, Lemon Bars and Cream Lilies as well as a few savoury treats. And a new section, with fail-safe recipes for home-made sweets like Russian Fudge, Coconut Ice and Hokey Pokey, will help ensure the success of any community sweet stall. Like its predecessor A Second Helping celebrates the accumulated wisdom of past generations of skilled home cooks in a beautiful book which will bring continuing pleasure – and an assurance of baking triumphs – to your kitchen.
