The ultimate feel-good book full of delicious and original cake recipes from the star of Cook Yourself Thin

Harry Eastwood loves cake - from the lightest, fluffiest cup cake to the biggest, squidgiest chocolate gateau - and she thinks we should eat more of them, completely without guilt. Cakes without processed ingredients that taste exquisite. Cakes that anyone can eat, whether you need to avoid particular types of food, when you're trying to stay trim or if you just love cake.

Harry has pioneered a way to bring cake into our everyday lives by introducing ingredients from the vegetable garden. From her first chocolate and beetroot cake in Cook Yourself Thin she has developed 100 recipes to delight your tastebuds and your waistline.

No recipe is included that is not thoroughly delicious and each one has its own health benefits so you can perk up your system with a specially selected slice of cake when you're feeling run down. The ultimate guilt-free comfort food, Red Velvet and Chocolate Heartache is every cake lover's holy grail.

About the Author

Harry Eastwood

Harry Eastwood first came to the public’s attention in 2007 when she co-presented Channel 4’s popular prime-time television series Cook Yourself Thin. She later went on to present the 20-part US version of the show on Lifetime network and is the author of three other cookery books, Red Velvet & Chocolate Heartache – which has sold more than 42,000 copies, The Skinny French Kitchen – which was nominated for the prestigious Guild of Food Writers Miriam Poulnin Award for Healthy Eating, and A Salad for All Seasons.

Famous for her imaginative and unusual approach to food, Harry’s focus remains the creation of original and reliable recipes that work every time. Her most recent TV series have included Fox’s Baking Good, Baking Bad and Sinful Sweets, which aired on Cooking Channel USA.

Harry is especially well known for successfully sneaking vegetables into cakes. What may come as a surprise is that she has also been researching meat in all its aspects for more than 15 years. Her passion for butchery and all meat matters even took her to Smithfield Market where she moonlit as an apprentice butcher in her early twenties. Carneval is the result of this colourful journey.

Harry lives in Paris.
