We are so excited that Jess Elliott Dennison, founder of the much-loved Elliott’s on Sciennes Road in Edinburgh, joins us in the bookshop to celebrate her new book Lazy Baking.
From the bestselling author of Tin Can Magic and Salad Feasts comes a brilliant new book dedicated to baking which is minimal fuss, yet comforting and delicious.
From speedy breakfast flatbreads for eggs to zesty amaretti to enjoy with coffee, Jess’s recipes require just a handful of ingredients, minimal kit, and little need for washing up. There are recipes for ridiculously easy rustic pastries for a satisfying mid-week lunch, and 3-ingredient Peanut Butter Cookies for those moments when you just need a quick-fix treat using what’s already in the cupboard. There’s
also foolproof crispbreads for enjoying with a bottle of wine, and effortless cakes you can rely on for last-minute celebrations.
At Elliott’s, Jess creates weekly-changing menus of delicious food using seasonal and local produce. Alongside, there is always good coffee, deliciously simple baking and interesting drinks. A staple of the local community, The Elliott’s Kitchen is also stocked with a well curated selection of store cupboard ingredients, wines and kitchenware. For those who don’t yet know Jess or her cooking, we guarantee you’re in for a real treat. Many of our booksellers are regulars at Elliott’s, and we can’t wait for our turn to welcome Jess to the bookshop.
