Editorial Reviews:

“He looks like a model and he’ll bring us carrot cake. Meet our dream man… The new king of baking. Step aside, Mary Berry, there’s a new baking guru on the block… Baking God Kamran Siddiqi. The kitchen just got a whole lot hotter.”

Instyle Magazine (UK), December 2014 Issue

“Don’t let the title fool you, this isn’t your grandmother’s sentimental collection of old-timey recipes. First-person experiences in head notes permeate the title with [Siddiqi’s] highly likeable and informative voice, and the full-page color photography and contemporary design make it a pleasure to read and spend time with the pages. An unpretentious, cheery collection designed to convert fear-filled nonbakers to experts.”


“This sweet debut from Kamran Siddiqi covers everything from morning pastries through after-dinner desserts, rustic and encompassing the flavors I crave. With beautiful photographs, Kamran has captured the essence of home baking, detailing every luscious buttery crust and crumb. You’ll be tempted to lick each and every page”

David Lebovitz, Author of MY Paris Kitchen

“Kamran has always seemed wise beyond his years to me, from his ‘old soul’ maturity and charm to his penchant for crafting beautifully sophisticated recipes. I’ve been waiting for this cookbook for a long time, and it does not disappoint!”

Ree Drummond (Pioneer Woman), New York Times Best Selling author of “The Pioneer Woman Cooks”

“[Hand Made Baking] feels lovely and personal, like you’re peering into the kitchen of a friend who’s invited you over for cake and coffee. From the dedication to the last headnote, a light air of charm and an apparent love of food permeate the writing. Everything in Hand Made Baking, from the friendly headnotes to the luscious images, draws you in and compels you to head straight for the kitchen.”


“That Kamran Siddiqi is something else! His baked goods are made with love and true dedication. His photographs make me hungry every time. Reading Hand Made Baking makes me want to move into the kitchen and bake a cake. I have a feeling the same will happen to you.”
