I am very excited as I've been working on a new cookbook series and the first two books are now in the bookstores. It's always quite a long and involving process until the finished book and therefore always so exciting when finally the book is printed and on display.
These are the first two titles in a new, down-to-earth series that deals with many of the kitchen dilemmas and challenges faced by modern men, women and families of all shapes and sizes.
The My Kitchen series is written in a savvy style, packed with recipes that are nutritious, easy, budget-friendly and use only commonly available supermarket ingredients. Each title in the series addresses those who are time poor, or budget conscious so that cooking remains a joy. It celebrates good food, and the simple but important act of taking time to eat well.
This series also recognises the growing awareness of the quality and provenance of the food we eat, featuring fresh food wherever possible, with a license to cheat.
I am very excited as I have enrolled again in a Planet Cake class in April and I can't wait to get started. The classes are very popular and you have to be quick to get a spot so I've been lucky to get in. I have always been a fan of cake decorating and Planet Cake but since I worked with Paris Cutler on her Planet Cake book I admire them even more. In the meantime I've been making cakes for kids' birthdays parties so that I am not just spending money :-)
