About the Author

George Bazeley Scurfield was an English author, poet, and politician. He was born on 19 March 1920 in Leicestershire, England, and died on 15 December 1991 in Norwich, England. He married Cecilia Hopkinson in 1947 at Cambridge, England. They had five children, including their son the actor, Matthew Scurfield, and daughters; Sarah, Lucy, Poly and Sophy. George Scurfield, with his wife Cecilia, wrote two charming and useful works on home baking. These books have become cook book classics, [6] and both remain in print to this day. The first, Home Baked, about the process of hand baking bread, was originally published in 1956. The companion volume, Home-Made Cakes and Biscuits, first published in 1975, is equally engaging[7] and practical.


'The Scurfields' gentle plea for home baking has lost none of its appeal in the fifty additive-laden years since they first opted out of 'shop bread'. When I started making my own bread, their simple and reliable recipes boosted my confidence and introduced me to such delights as Challah, Brioches and Gugelhupf. Tea with George and Celia would have been a tasty, wholesome and, above all, good-natured occasion - just how real baking should be.' Andrew Whitley, author of Bread Matters
