Congratulations Lucy (and Kathryn and Luisa)! Such well deserved success. Hope it's soon in hundreds of kitchens. I've ordered and already received my copy. I'm giving it as a present confident they'll love it.


So very inspiring Lucy! What a treat to come by your blog this very hot and first lazy day of the season, to find such a beautiful post. xx


Sweetness, you are one of the lights of my life.

Just so you know...

Congratulations on your book. I'm such a food blog addict but I still love my print recipe books. There is something about being able to study a printed book that is very relaxing and inspiring. Hope you have a lovely Christmas and welcome to the fabulous forties.


hoo! you published authoress, you! i am unspeakably happy to hear your news...

christmas day...quiet, and here, snug by the woodstove, maybe out for a wander in the winter countryside with my friend from ankara who is coming to stay with me for a few days. dosas and sambar. sparkling pear. maybe baked russian kutia for breakfast. maybe creamed fish over crusty bread with a fresh watercress salad, a good cheese, and a bottle of nice wine. and homemade fruitcake, aged 1 year, with hot tea.

that's my little food fantasy anyway. yours sounds dang good too!


I am so happy for beautiful, authentic, brave YOU.

I'll be with my mom in the country on Christmas Day. Music, candles, shine and shimmer, slow food, a fine book, a walk with Piper on Little Mountain, the phone call to my brother and family, the phone call from my friend in Florida -- the traditions I love.

(The rose - oh. my. gorgeous.)

that's very exciting to have a print edition - will try and check it out - hope your christmas day was relaxing with no snakes :-)


Congratulations, Lucy! And while I was born a Pisces and not a Leo, I tend to gravitate to the kitchen during parties, as well. I enjoy reading your blog so much- hope you have a happy and successful 2013.


... just read four wonderful posts in a row Lucy! So missed popping in over here!
Had to share this on my Facebook page.
Sending my very best wishes for 2013 to be your year... I so know this story you write of... how easy it is to slink away and not just step forward. But at some point one is simply mad not to... so glad you are doing the print edition!
Need an agent in Bris? No seriously ... Food connect is also in Brisbane...good people .... can you offer it there I wonder? Google "Scrumptious Reads" in Bris... new food/cooking bookshop ...doing great things... wonderful people!


you guys!

thank you, thank you. so much. means more than you can imagine. x


Lucy! So exciting! Congratulations, love. You so deserve it! And you're right about the confidence thing (which I struggle with too).
Much success and happiness to you. Lesh x
