Hey there! I missed you! You may have guessed it already, I am most definitely not a multi-tasker. Certainly when it comes to shooting a cookbook and blogging at the same time. It just doesn’t work for me, I tried, I really did, several times. Approaching the last few cycles, I finally managed to escape my parallel universe consisting of my kitchen, pantry and props storage. Food shopping, styling, cooking or baking, food styling, shooting, doing the dishes, post-processing – and again. And again. Close to 100 times.
It’s all about my forth cookbook (and already big-time favourite!) – the third that I wrote, styled and shot all by myself. Honestly though, I tend to forget just how intense the final production phase is. Everyone who writes, cooks, styles & shoots his own cookbook probably can relate and may only have one term for this concept: O-U-T_O-F_Y-O-U-R_M-I-N-D_C-R-A-Z-Y_D-O-N-T_D-O_I-T . But then again, once it’s done, it feels friggin’ great!
So my cookbook no.4 will be published in February 2015 (Gräfe und Unzer) and of course I will keep you posted here on the blog. Meanwhile delicious:days will receive long over-due blogging love – I’m especially looking forward to an extensive Christmas baking spree (if you want to point me to your all time favourite Christmas cookie recipe, I’d love to read about it in the comment section).
See you soon!
