First Catch Your Gingerbread

Gingerbread is a lovely, squidgy treat which has played a part in almost everyone’s childhood. Sam’s first book charts the history of gingerbread from its mysterious honey ‘cake’ origins in the ancient world to the sticky treacle laden confections we love today. As well as covering this confection’s heritage the book contains over 50 sweet and savoury recipes from Britain and further afield including classics like Ginger Snaps, Parkin and Carbonnade of Beef.

First Catch Your Gingerbread was published by Prospect Books in November 2020.
