Product description


Just when I thought I didn't have anything left to learn about bread, Kitty teaches me otherwise. Accessible, engaging and wonderfully wide ranging -- Felicity Cloake

Not only is
Breadsong a brilliant book about the bliss of baking, Kitty Tait tells a brave and beautiful story of what it is to be human. Rise up like your dough, Kitty! You are Britain's next Star Baker! -- Mel Giedroyc

Breadsong is everything I could ever wish for from a book. Kitty is a true inspiration. I see her passion, her writing and her baking and I can't help but be filled with joy. I can't wait to see what she does next -- James Morton

Breadsong is exactly the kind of cookbook I love to curl up with - uplifting, inspiring, heartfelt and with wonderful recipes to boot. The best recipes are filled with heart and this book is just that -- Georgina Hayden

We have been following Kitty and Al's journey with wonder and amazement. It is proof, if one was needed, that a loaf of bread can have the power to heal, bring joy, bring together a family and a community and give life flavour and purpose. In this book they share with their stories and recipes, both are utterly delicious -- Itamar Srulovich and Sarit Packer, Honey & Co

Breadsong is an extraordinary father and daughter duet, a baking book that's dazzling with easy ideas and strong techniques for exactly what you want to bake and eat right now -- Dan Lepard

Breadsong is a beautifully soul-stirring book about overcoming personal anxieties and depression through the nurturing joys of baking. I loved it from start to finish! -- Gurd Loyal

Kitty and her father plot the journey from rock bottom to redemption through dough. A hilarious catalogue of the pitfalls of setting up your own artisan bakery with an inspiring tale about learning to recognise what's important - being brave enough to frame your life around it -- Xanthe Clay

More than a book about baking.
Breadsong made me hungry (very!) but it also filled me with admiration for Al, Kitty, their family and their friends. Inspiring, honest, generous and optimistic -- Janet Ellis

A wonderful exploration around the seemingly (and often not so) simple process of making bread and how it can help to heal and restore.
Breadsong is truly inspiring and will no doubt encourage everyone to bake, for both their mind and their mouth -- Flora Sheddon

Book Description

A cookbook with bags of heart about the redemptive power of baking

My name is Kitty and I am a first and foremost a baker. I can’t quite believe I am writing an Author bio as I still can’t quite believe I’m an author. I started baking at 14 when I got very ill with depression and anxiety and had to leave school. One loaf led to four led to forty and soon I was running a subscription service and then a pop up bakery. All of this was done with my Dad, Al who left his work as a teacher to bake with me. Today we run a shop called The Orange Bakery in Watlington, Oxfordshire and make everything from walnut and fig sourdough to deconstructed snickers cookies. I am so lucky because customers queue up outside and I get to feed them snacks as they wait. I’m a feeder. Our book Breadsong is about the last four years and how our lives changed so drastically. It’s also about the amazing people in Watlington who helped us, my family who were beside me at the worst of times and a very demanding corgi called Scout.

Thank you for thinking about buying it.

4.0 out of 5 stars not really my thing
By 🍊orange🍊 on 4 May 2022
I do wish that amazon would allow us to spit reviews into 'how well it's written' and 'did you like it?'
The first 152 pages of this book are absolutely not my thing; they're well written, but simply don't interest me. I nearly sent it back! This is not a slur on the authors, it's a comment that not everyone wants to know the 'journey'.
Then I tried the next level Chelsea buns — what a fantastic dough! OK, I'll keep it as I look forward to trying more recipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Next level Chelsea buns Amazing
By Jaz on 29 April 2022
Honestly after reading the Guardian article about Kitty's journey to baking it truly inspired me to buy the book, and I was super curious about the garam masala Chelsea buns. wow they're amazing if you have always wanted delicate flavor in your baked treats then just buy the book for the buns alone.
