Great British Bake Off’s Ruby to publish cookbook

Model, student and runner-up of last year’s Great British Bake Off, Ruby Tandoh, has landed a book deal.

Ruby lost the bake-off title to Frances Quinn, but gained attention with her many tears on the show and an attack by chef Raymond Blanc who said she was “so thin” and made him “doubt of her love for great cooking, baking,”.

We all know chefs have a temper but that was a bit unnecessary!

The book, Crumbs, will be published this year by Chatto and Windus. It has been said that there were up to nine publishers fighting to give her the deal.

Judging by her baking skills on GBBO, this is one book we’ll be adding to our kitchen shelves.
