Well 2016 sure flew by! Not one post from this desk - I can only blame the cookbook, the farm, the jam, the winery...my procrastinating! Thankfully we have 2017 to make up for it, all going to plan.
The Preservatory cookbook is at the printers as we speak, with a launch date of April 25th, 2017. A true labour of love, I was warned it would be a long process but didn't believe it would actually take almost two years. Appetite Random House editor Jenny Bradshaw has been a dream to work with, I really drew a lucky hand, being a first timer she was kind and supportive throughout the editing process, so many decisions and such thought go into every detail - I hope you love the results!
The farm is covered in beautiful crispy snow and we're heading into a chilly week, -10 they are predicting which means carrying water to the horses, walking short dogs along a 'cleared' path and making sure the bird feeders are topped up!
It also means, no excuse for not getting the new website contented uploaded - speaking of procrastination! I'm thrilled at the new design and can not wait to launch it along with our new branding and preserve flavours at this months Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco!
