Celebrity Bake Book - in support of The Ben Kinsella Trust {book review}

In June 2008 Ben Kinsella's family lost him to knife crime. It was a case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Ben's family have started a trust in his name, in hopes to bring awareness of the consequences of knife crime and what it can do to a family to kids across the country. 

One thing Ben loved to do was cook; his favorite dessert was apple pie. The recipe can be found in the book. If you want to know more about the book check out the website. (no link - not available as of 26/11/17)

The amount of celebrities who have submitted a recipe to this book is numerous. I wouldn't even know where to begin in listing them. Some recipes you will have seen before and there are several recipes for banana bread/muffins/cake. But I like the feel of the book. A bunch of people coming together for a good cause. I like how the recipes range from rustic to modern, easy to hard, and they come from all around the world. 

Intro & back cover
People have commented to me about gun crime in America, but here in the UK knife crime is serious business. When I first moved here in 2005 I read an article about how a man was stabbed on a bus after asking a group of people to stop throwing stuff at him and his girlfriend. Another article about how a guy was stabbed on his wedding day... another case of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. I think that The Ben Kinsella Trust is important. If you want to learn more or help out visit the website. You could buy the book all royalties go to the trust.

A few of the recipes I plan to try! 
I wouldn't normally post so many book reviews right in a row, but after buying this book on Thursday and receiving it yesterday, I felt the need to share it sooner then later. When I get around to baking from it I will share it here!
