A debut book from one of UK's finest food bloggers. With the internationally acclaimed successes of blog to book to big screen of 'Julia and Jules', and, before that, Clotilde Dusoulier's 'Chocolate and Zucchini' (the original food blog to be published as an international best seller) comes 'A Slice of Cherry Pie', the first major food blog to book from this side of the Atlantic. It's a faithful reworking of all the elements of a blog which have brought Julia a large and loyal following. Her writing interweaves food with beautifully composed evocations of the places, people and memories which inform her recipe creations: a mix of modern rustic dishes inspired and inflected by a love of eating and sharing. A stunning backdrop of arresting food photography from Cristian Barnett and assemblies of text montages, family snapshots and the author's own photographs provide a perfectly balanced visual echo to an assured and passionate voice. A book which promises to be the first of many from a gifted new food writer, eagerly awaited by thousands of followers all over the world.
