The Last Signed Copies of Comfort & Spice (Just in time for Christmas!)

Many of you will have Comfort & Spice already, but for those of you that don’t, these are the last copies from the warehouse and your last chance to buy this edition.

Published in 2011 it has had a good run, and I feel happy and a little sad, it is bitter sweet. But it is clearing the way for Bacon (the first Brunch ebook will be with you very soon, with five others following and a bumper print book). 

It was a passion project, all heart and soul, a way of sharing how I love to cook in print, from Speedy Suppers to Long Weekend Lunches with Friends and Big Dinners. And of course, drinks! Almost all of the recipes were created for the book and were not on the blog – all 157 of them! (I signed a contract for an 80 recipe book, I just never know when to stop). 

I feel when I look back at that time that it was a world away, but then I read the book and I immediately connect with the person I was then, and the food is still true to what I cook now. 

Purchase your copy here, and I will be in touch shortly after to see who you want it signed for!

Available only to the UK and Ireland for now, as Royal Mail can’t guarantee delivery before Christmas anywhere else. Apologies international readers. All future books will be available digitally also.  

Note for Kickstarter backers: I know that many of you are also waiting for Comfort & Spice. If you backed so that you would receive Comfort & Spice also and would like your copy now, and the Bacon book in Spring (with the ebooks in between – I will be emailing you all soon), please email me to advise! – thanks always for your patience. Things are going well with this now.
