Comfort & Spice: An Update

Cooking for the Comfort & Spice Photoshoot

No pancake day post?! WHAT?! Where have I hidden my sense of occasion? I did celebrate of course but never wrote about it as things have been rather busy. We had delicious pancakes on Tuesday on location at the photoshoot for Comfort & Spice – my cookbook that will be published later this year.

We finished yesterday and I love the photos. It was fun to break out some of my old market recipes and tuck in once they were no longer models for the shoot. I wish I could show you them now but we’ve all got to wait until September. It really isn’t that far away, is it?! Georgia Glynn Smith did a fabulous job of understanding my love of big flavours, bright colours and print and colour clashes. I hope that you will agree too.

Just a few more days writing and testing ahead. Triple testing takes its toll financially and mentally but it’s an essential part of the process for me. It means that I don’t have as many recipes to share here as I would like, but I have a long list not in the book to power through from next week :)

See you all then!
