Dan Lepard's recipes

Our baking expert shares his tips: 1. Go easy on your baking mistakes and try not to be distracted by your successes.
2. We're lucky to have the ingredients, the time and the equipment to work with. Remind yourself of that when you can't be bothered.
3. All baking benefits from minimal handling: if you don't need to touch it, hands off.
4. Appreciate the flavour of each ingredient before you combine them, then do everything to preserve the flavour through to the plate.
