Diving right back into Cliffs House and Cefflygwyn is almost like coming home. All the regulars are present, and Kitty, who first appeared in the last book, is now Julianne’s full-time assistant. Nathan Menton, the brash American whom we also met in the last book, is now living in Truro and was one of the main players in getting Cliffs House as the venue for “The Grand Baking Extravaganza”. As a contestant, Dinah takes a week off as Cliffs House cook so she can concentrate on the show. She is up against some stiff competition and it seems as if nerves will get the better of Dinah, or will they?
The descriptions of the food sound soo enticing and I feel like having a baking session of my own. The depiction of the event itself is so like “The Great British Bake-Off” (which I loved), and do the judges (or at least one of them) sound ever so slightly familiar? I couldn’t possibly tell.
Tension mounts as the contestants chop, mix and bake, some creations winners and others very sad losers (that’s the baked products, not the contestants). There is also some tension elsewhere in Cliffs House. Kitty has lost a lot of her abrasiveness and defensiveness, but not all of it and when she feels threatened by someone getting too close, will all her usual defences go up?
Just reading the descriptions of the final cakes gave me a sugar overload and while the cakes were meticulously and beautifully described enough to picture them, I would have loved a photo of the winning cake to drool over. I found a very short, but eloquent descriptive passage that are one of the things I enjoy so much in this series.
Thank you, Ms Briggs for another wonderful visit to your very special Cornwall.
