WELL SEASONED

The Blog

Welcome to our award winning blog

 

Here you can find a collection of our thoughts, reports and ramblings together with some fun things we find along the way. We try to update the blog at least once a week and more often during busy periods so make sure you check back regularly..

Earlier this week we submitted the second half of our text for the book to the publishers. Exciting stuff and at the same time we received the first half back from the proof-readers. It felt a bit like getting your home work marked - I'm not sure if i've been given a B or a C . (In fact, I'm not sure those even exist under the new system.)


As we get closer to launch and availability of pre-orders for Well Seasoned, we've been re-designing the website and have taken the decision to re-launch with one that is entirely designed around the book. When we launch, you'll see lots of changes and a fresh, clean design with lots of new material. Rest assured, our seasonality charts will still be there along with all of the blog from 2017 onwards. The older blog material will be archived and parked elsewhere (so the search engines can still find it) with a link to the new site.


What do you need to do? Absolutely nothing except sit back and enjoy the ride with us. We'll let you know before the new site launches and a simple refresh of your browser is all you might need once it's gone live.


It's been a really busy few weeks for us with writing, recipe testing and photography as well as working with the publishers on things like the proof reading, design and layout. As I write this, Russ is slaving over a hot grouse in the kitchen and Matt Inwood, our designer, is trying his best to interpret our wooly and incomplete thoughts into a stunning cover.


More to come very soon.


PS. The damsons have arrived a few weeks early (we'd normally expect them mid-September). If you want to make a batch of damson gin or jam, it's time to get picking!

With a mixture of excitement and nervousness, we submitted the first half of the book to the publishers last week. Eek! If you've ever handed in a thesis or large piece of coursework you'll know the feeling. Pen down, job done. Oh wait, let me just change that bit... etc. But definitely a really exciting time for us and it's made the book feel very "real".


In related news, we're really pleased that the publishers have confirmed Matt Inwood as the designer of Well Seasoned. In fact, coincidentally, Russ has known Matt for a number of years and had already shared his vision for the book so we're really confident that Matt is going to do a fantastic job. With books for Tom Kerridge, Jason Atherton and Atul Kochhar already in his portfolio we couldn't be in better company.


Finally, HERE's a link to the first of our teaser videos for the book. We're hoping to do a few of these as we reach various milestones in the publication timeline...and as our presentation skills improve!
