I know it's been a long time since my last post, but hopefully this exciting packet of news will make up for it. Many moons ago I was approached by the sassy lasses from The Bookery Cook to contribute an artwork for their inaugural cook book. Naturally, when they sent me the list of recipes to choose from, I picked the dessert platter to work with, filled with fruity-nutty-chocolatey treats. I think it may be the sauciness of my subject's legs, but good fortune has landed my work on the cover - I think it sums up the essence of the book, and its authors: Sassy, fruity, nutty chicks who love cooking and art.
This book has been in the making for well over a year, with the book due for release in Australia and NZ on April 24, available online and in stores (UK release in June). I believe that there will be an exhibition in Sydney to coincide with the release of the book, sometime later in the year (details to come!). So please support these clever ladies and all the (66 in total) artist's that gave up their time and artwork to be involved with this gorgeous project - I have tried some of the recipes (the earl grey teacake is amazing!!), these chicks know their stuff.
Aside from the book, there are loads more recipes and illustrations on their blog – art and food for one and all!
