Now that we’re comfortably into November, we can finally delve into this year’s sumptuous selection of Christmas novels without feeling any shame. First on our list is Jenny Oliver’s The Parisian Christmas Bakeoff. Paris at Christmas, a celebrated patisserie competition, melt-in-the-mouth macaroons and towers of perfect profiteroles – what’s not to love? If you’d like to win a copy for yourself, read on!
Watching snowflakes settle on the Eiffel Tower, Rachel Smithson’s cosy English village feels very far away – as, thankfully, does her commitment-phobic ex, probably already kissing someone else under the mistletoe. But Rachel hasn’t come to Paris to mope she’s come to bake. Hard.
Because the search for Paris’s next patisserie apprentice is about to begin! And super-chef judge Henri Salernes is an infamously tough cookie. But Rachel isn’t about to let her confidence (or pastry) crumble. She’s got one week, mounds of melt-in-the-mouth macaroons and towers of perfect profiteroles to prove that she really is a star baker.As well as clouds of flour, and wafts of chocolate and cinnamon, there’s definitely a touch of Christmas magic in the air … Rachel hasn’t come to Paris looking for a fairy-tale romance, but the city of love might gift-wrap her one anyway …
