Dear Women’s Weekly Cook­book team,

I have been a long-time lover of The Aus­tralian

Women’s Weekly cook­books. I grew up learn­ing to bake from my mother’s Big Book of Beau­ti­ful

Bis­cuits, as well as Cakes and Slices. As I grew up and de­vel­oped my own cook­book li­brary, I have dis­cov­ered new favourites and rem­i­nisced over old mem­o­ries in my copies of Retro Bak­ing, Bak­ing: The Com­plete

Col­lec­tion and Love to Bake.

I do love to bake. How­ever, as the “baker” in my group of friends and fam­ily, no-one ever bakes for me. So you can imag­ine my sur­prise when, af­ter a par­tic­u­larly mas­sive week of work, my part­ner

(who had never baked any­thing in his en­tire life) sur­prised me and spent his day off bak­ing my all-time favourite treat, a lum­ber­jack cake (page 72, Sweet Old-fash­ioned Favourites). I ar­rived home to a house smelling like child­hood mem­o­ries.

I wanted to share this story with you so that you know that your de­li­cious recipes have en­riched our lives. I want to ac­knowl­edge the beauty of The Aus­tralian Women’s

Weekly recipes, as they are re­li­able and ap­proach­able. Even home cooks with no ex­pe­ri­ence can fol­low along.

Car­ers are shar­ers, so let’s join hands and em­brace our foodie friends with let­ters, recipes and more!
