Bacon the Cookbook is now on sale! It is packed with gorgeous, tasty recipes and is a perfect antidote to the pandemic. It is a limited print release and is available from BaconTheCookbook.com. An ebook will go on sale next week also.
Some good news for 2020. A new cookbook from me!
I am so very excited to let you know that my second cookbook, Bacon the Cookbook, publishes this week (on Thursday 17th December!). It is 224 pages of words and recipes devoted to Bacon and recipes and colour.
There are 80+ recipes, lots of photography, some wittering and a little pontification, but in the very best way, as you will expect. The recipes veer from the familiar to the unexpected and the outright comforting.
If you love bacon, and doing something a little different in the kitchen, you will love this book. You don’t need to be an expert, every recipe is explained in detail, and I keep it light. If you are already a competent cook, it is full of new ideas for you! There are lots of tidbits of info, and tips too.
Dare I say it is the perfect antidote to the pandemic. Yes, I do! These are big claims, but I spent a very long time on this book, and you will see that the book lives up to it. I have worked too hard and for too long on this to be understated. Why must we be understated to be accepted? I can’t help but rebel.
How did Bacon the Cookbook come about?
You may remember that fizz of bacon action which was very visible here some years back. My Bacon Masterclasses and Sunday Bacon Club, maybe you even attended and caught the bug. That evolved into the idea for this book, and I have been working on it for the last, well, quite a few years!
I worked with a wonderful publisher (Quadrille) for my first book. For my second book, I wanted to work on something that was more design oriented and I wanted more of my personal stamp on it. I wanted to be more involved. I decided that I would embark on what would prove to be quite an extensive and intense publishing journey.
