Yes I’m still alive, thank you for asking. The reason for the sudden quietness around here were my fantastic skills to juggle coordinate the last deadlines for my book with a rather spontaneously arranged trip to Paris. Paris was excellent, my aforementioned skills quite the opposite. In fact I am happy to state, that Christina (the angel from the editorial office) did not despair and throw her computer with my book on harddisk out of the window… Luckily, the hotel had free Wi-Fi, so at least a little got done, before exploring the city with Paris insiders, friends and foodbloggers Katia and David, who didn’t get tired of spending time with us and sharing their favorite places. Now I definitely know that I could live pretty happily for the rest of my life just eating Saya or Soleil by Sadaharu Aoki – with the occasional Falafel inbetween.
But I was even more happy, when I left my editor’s office yesterday. The final layout check is done, now I (and three more pairs of eyes) will spend the weekend re-re-re-reading the German book before we’ll do the same with the English version probably over the next weekend. The publishing date (September) is approaching faster as ever …
Don’t you think this is the perfect atmosphere for layouting a nice little cookbook? (it’s Christina’s office, not mine)
Shhh, You shouldn’t see this, but hey a sneak peak hasn’t hurt anyone?
Don’t you just have to love a graphic designer who uses the food names for the colors in your book?
