Bread & Butter is a love letter to two glorious, artisanal products that have graced our tables for centuries. The book delves deep into the history and culture behind the bread and butter partnership, taking a global overview that brings us to the present day.

It also shares more than 50 outstanding sweet and savoury recipes that celebrate the best of both bread and butter. There are key recipes for a variety of breads (flatbreads, brioche, grain loaf) and butters (real butter, ghee, flavoured spreads), as well as recipes that bring the two together, from simple buttermilk scones or bread puddings, to a brioche and brown butter ice-cream and spelt buttermilk pancakes.

Bread and Butter are put on the table to be eaten and enjoyed, and this book shows you how to prepare both brilliantly – but it also explores how bread and butter are used in celebration, myth and story across the world. It covers the traditions, the flavours and the making processes. And it's a celebration of the most humble, but arguably most important, pairings in food history.
