So, first I got permission from my publisher to post the cover of my next book (will be released March 2012)
BUT, as I mentioned earlier that cover might change so don't be confused if the book shows up on
with a different cover
(where, by the way, it can be pre-ordered....)
A couple of days ago I received the layouts and it's such a thrill to see all the work come together visually. As much as I know every shots and recipes there is nothing like seeing them pulled together on the pages. That's when all the endless travel, all the shoots, all the preparations for locations and recipes, and all the writing to go along with Mark's beautiful photos pay off.
Now (YEAH!), I have also been given permission to post a few photos. I am happy to share them with you and there will be more in the future. Obviously I can't post recipes but hopefully the photos will make you "hungry" for more.
Here is a little collage but don't confuse that with the cover. These are but a few of the many photos you will find in the book. From food, children, animals and breathtaking scenery the book is no ordinary cookbook. I hope you will love them as much as I do. Please let me know what you think so far.
While I am on the topic of food and books I also wanted to let you know (IN CASE YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW) about
