I edited a book!
I might have mentioned it before, it is called Our Grannies’ Recipes and it has been on the market for 5 weeks. Somewhat amazingly it is selling very well and is currently sitting very nicely at Number 8 on the Food & Drinks list, just before Rachel’s Diary 2009 and just after Grandma’s Best Recipes (I’m pretty sure that is only selling because of Our Grannies’ Recipes but I’ll be damned if I can prove it!)
This is an incredible performance for a book that isn’t written by a celebrity chef (I’m very, very sure I don’t count as a celebrity) and isn’t massively illustrated with lavish photography. What it does have it is great recipes submitted by real people and wonderfully simple design.
I know I am biased but I think it is a wonderful book that makes an excellent present. What is more, every single copy sold means that Age Action Ireland will get €1*. If that doesn’t seal the deal, I don’t know what will.
* I’ve given my full royalty to Age Action so I get no benefit from the book except extreme pleasure from being associated with such a nice product serving a good cause!
PS Sorry for the shameless plug but every now and then I think you have to!
