My first solo cookbook, ‘A Slice of Cherry Pie, was inspired by the blog and contains recipes from the blog as well as lots of brand new ones, along with seasonal writings and about the places and memories that are entwined with my recipes.
The book takes you on a seasonal journey from spring through to winter and includes recipes for friends, for weekends, and for occasions such as Bonfire night and Christmas time.
The food photography is by Cristian Barnett, an incredibly talented photographer who has captured the recipes in the book beautifully. There are also some of my own photographs scattered through the book, along with family snapshots.

‘A Slice of Cherry Pie’, is featured in the book ‘Foodies of the World’, published by The Slattery Media Group in October 2010.
The publication is a collection of profiles and recipes from the best blogs around the world and it covers an international spread of cuisines, courses and recipe styles, as well as profiles of the bloggers themselves, who come from all corners of the globe.
Containing stunning photography, styling and images, this is a high-quality cookbook with real food from real people.

Coca-Cola has teamed up with Tom Aikens, Alex James, Liz McClarnon and myself, to create a limited edition stylish recipe book called ‘When You Entertain’ – a modern twist on the original Coca-Cola recipe book from 1932, which was written by the legendary American Hostess Ida Bailey Allen. ‘When you Entertain’ celebrates the brand’s rich heritage and association with food and family occasions over the last century. We have each created a series of dishes which evoke intimate memories of mealtime occasions with family and friends, celebrating the fact that food is very much a social event. The family inspired recipes are divided into four easy mealtime categories; Weekend Brunches, Family Mealtimes, Saturday Night with Friends and Easy Lunch. My recipes include homely favourites such as Sausage and Mash with Onion and Thyme Gravy, and Bramley Apple Pie.
