Win 1 of 10 copies of Ten Poems about Baking!

New from Candlestick Press is Ten Poems about Baking, edited by poet and baker Helena Nelson.

This gorgeous mini-anthology celebrates all that’s wonderful about baking – the time-honoured recipes, the patient stirring of ingredients, the sticky fingers in the mixing bowl. Baking, the poems seem to say, is a profoundly human art: a homemade summer pudding can create ‘a stillness lost in taste’ at a dinner party with friends, while opening an old spice jar can transport us swiftly back to childhood.

Beautifully packaged with an envelope for posting ‘instead of a card’ and a bookmark for a special message, this is something that will delight anyone who loves to bake – as much as those who simply appreciate the glory of a well-made Victoria Sponge.

We’ve got 10 copies of Ten Poems about Baking to give away! Click ‘Enter here’ and answer the question before Monday 16th March. Visit to find out more.
