As you may (or may not!) know, we’ve been working on a book for awhile now. A few actually, but that’s for a later date. Right now, we’re far enough along on the first that we can spill the beans!
Our yet-to-be-named cook book will be released sometime in October – we should have an actual date within the next couple of weeks. We’ll be setting up for presales around that time, also.
The exciting news? We start photography for it tomorrow!!
This weekend was a tiring bunch of prep work for the start of photography. Running around, figuring out what to buy for backdrops, accessories / props, etc. Getting more serving plates in different styles, forks.. and a few more cocktail glasses. I think we’re all set to go!
Why cocktail glasses? Well, the book has a duel focus – it features recipes for cocktails.. and cakes/sweets BASED ON those cocktails! There are some seriously heavy hitting, amazing recipes in this book. My favorite so far is the Mango Mojito Upside Down Cake. Wild! We put that cake to our regular monthly group of “guinea pigs”, and even the most fussy eater in the group gave it a “10”.
If you can’t wait for October to try these goodies, don’t worry – you don’t have to! We will be featuring a good handful of goodies from the book at each Maple Grove Farmer’s Market we’re at, till the end of August! Come by and try a slice of heaven! This week, we will be featuring cakes based on tropical cocktails. Yum!
