About

I have written cooked and photographed on St Martins  from October 1010 to October 2011. I ran St Martins award winning bakery and achieved "Best Uk food retailer" as voted by Radio 4 food and farming programme.

The book I will be publishing has been written. It contains over 100 original recipes, including Gluten free recipes, over 100 colour and black and white photographs of the dishes featured, and the stunning landscape of the Isles of Scilly.

It is the seasonal diary of seasonal dishes, humorous stories and seasonal photography in this unique landscape and community. 

I am in the process of having the layout and design professionally tailored to suit and reflect the subject and this inimitable environment and story book.

This is my second book.

My first book, "The Island Ingredient" sold 5,000 copies and soon after publication achieved a rating on Amazon of No 520 out of the 3.5 million books they advertise and rate, and is still selling well.

I need some help with funds to realise the printing of this follow up book to "The Island Ingredient" which would then enable me to move onto my next project which is a six programme television series I am currently talking with BBC Wales about, namely  " Six Thousand years of Bread" the history of bread and baking from Prehistoric times to the present day.

Thank you for your consideration.

Risks and challenges

The risks are non sales of the published book, based on the sucess of the first one and gained experience I am confident the second will sell considerably more.
