Breadsong: How Baking Changed Our Lives, Al & Kitty Tait


A brilliant and moving book about how Kitty baked her way out of a mental health black hole, helped by her father Al and an amazing cast of family, neighbours and fellow bakers from all over the world.

You can read my interview with Kitty and Al for The i Paper here.

This isn’t a book for bakers alone. I really recommend buying it for any young people in your life or anyone who might need cheering up, or any parents going through hard times. The writing is beautiful and the Taits are a wonderful example of what families can do for each other if the will and the love is there.
