Testers Required

I'm on the last run as it were. The book has been edited by my fantastic editor Jamie Ambrose and now I have to finish correcting and editing myself! It's a really hard job. My recipes have come back to me with the equivalent of RED biro across each one. Some more some less .. with comments. Oven temperature ? Explain more! Describe this. and so on. I won't bore you with any more details .. suffice to say it's tedious. Very tedious.

Now I've complained enough. The process is so necessary and even the simplest recipe needs a run through. Can you imagine if a recipe has an ingredient forgotten, or a poor instruction. It doesn't bear thinking about. There are a few more recipes that need testing and the deadline is looming, so I am asking you for help. If you have a FOOD BLOG and are willing to test and blog about one of the recipes below please email me.

You will get to join the testing team. I can link back to your Blog and I will thank you personally at the book launch on 2nd June, and give you a book as a thank you .. PLUS you will meet all the other Bloggers and Tweeters ..and thejournalists it will be fun!

  1. Oh my! People move fast don't they! Looks like I'm too late but if you need anyone else let me know!

  2. Oh no, I'm far too late. What a shame. Please let me know if you want anyone else to test the recipes for you.


If you are reading my blog I must warn you that I am not impartial. I want to influence you. I want to make you stop for just a moment and consider the effect of a lifetime of seemingly insignificant decisions and how making small delicious choices can change the world.

I believe that we can change the world one bite at a time.

It's a delicious revolution.
