‘Quite simply, Roger Pizey is one of the finest pastry chefs Britain has ever known.’ Marco Pierre White

World's Best Cakes is a fabulous collection of globally-inspired classic bakes, from national favourites such as American Boston cream pie and British Chelsea buns to exquisite small treats including Russian Tea Cakes and French madeleines. Each recipe has been meticulously researched and perfectly baked by Roger Pizey, one of the world's leading pastry chefs.

Whether you are a baking novice wanting to make your first plum madeira or a seasoned pastry enthusiast wishing to impress with a millefeuille and a croquembouche, the book is divided into chapters that correspond with types of cakes and techniques. A handy go-to recipe section covers all the Baking Basics – from all types of pastry to crème Anglaise or frangipane.

With guest recipes from some of the world’s most famous chefs and bakers, including Rachel Allen, Mark Hix and Marco Pierre-White, World’s Best Cakes is a superlative global resource for the art of cake baking, a showcase of awe-inspiring cakes and pastries, each one a superb testament to the skills of master pâtissier Roger Pizey.

Roger Pizey is a celebrated baker and patissier with over twenty years' experience at the cutting edge of cooking. He trained for two years with Albert Roux at Le Gavroche before joining the charismatic Marco Pierre White as his Chef Patissier. As Marco was becoming the first British chef to be awarded 3 Michelin Stars, Roger was creating the ground-breaking desserts for his restaurants. Roger developed his craft in some of the finest restaurants in London, including a period as Head Chef of the highly regarded Criterion Restaurant, before returning to his original passion and founding the bakery for Peyton & Byrne. There he created a classic selection of pastry offerings, both sweet and savoury, reigniting interest in traditional pastry treats. He has appeared on Hell's Kitchen, demonstrating his superb pastry skills alongside celebrity chef Marco Pierre White.
