My New Cookbook is due to be launched into bookstores everywhere in August
This has been a lot of fun producing. The photography days are especially satisfying and such a gang of characters on the set.
This is a photo of my very dear friend Maree O’Neill who does my hair and makeup and clothes (or apron styling) on shoot days.
My photographer is Jae Frew and it’s such a pleasure working with Jae, we have a lot of laughs but I know I'm in capable hands as he is undoubtedly the best photographer in the business.
Davide Zerilli assists Jae and he is unofficially one of my adopted Italian kids. The food stylist is good friend and very talented food writer and stylist Jane Rangiwahia she's my right hand girl in the kitchen and Susan Elijas is the wonderful props and food placement stylist. Susan has worked on the last 5 or 6 books of mine and I totally adore her work, she's so creative and were a great little team together. The overall book designer is Petrina Rose and she is a marvel,
We have all sorts of extras on the set and lots of people coming and going so really quite a big production behind scenes. At the end of each day there are always lots of volunteers when it comes to eating all the food samples.
Details of the date of book launch and the book tour and launch functions will be posted on this website as soon as we've confirmed them. Also details of how you could get a signed or dedicated copy. Sign up for our newsletter to be first to know!
