Years ago I had lunch in a restaurant in London and there I tasted health food like I had never tasted before. I had a clear vision on the spot when I felt what this vegetarian food did to my system. This is it!! Wow, what a boost! 

Since then it has never left my mind. I started to look for what I think is exclusive and original vegetarian food. I could not find it. I wanted to eat different vegetarian food that only seemed to exist in my mind. No lentil mash for me. I wanted taste sensations! I wanted style!

In the years that followed, I cooked the stars out of heaven.

I studied factory farming and was disgusted by it. I wanted to make a contribution to a better world with my passion for cooking by writing a vegetarian cookbook. The creativity started to flow and during the process I got help from some fantastic people who really believed in my Love Delight project. All in all, it took me two years to write the book. I got help from a great food photographer, Kimberley van Leusden -- who still needs to get paid! I got big help from a fantastic Dutch artist called Mascha Rutten.  Her outstanding and extraordinary mind can be seen at: www.heartofart.nl. She believes, like me, that projects done out of love and with love will succeed. She is right. The cookbook, Love Delight, became a fun and positive book full of good vibes and I  love to publish it.

The money raised through you, Kickstarters, will be used to print my  book , design a logo and advertise it -- and I will pay, if there is enough money raised, the people who have waited so long.
So do please share this Kickstarter project with all your friends.
 I will use some of the money for online advertising to get the sales going. I  love to create an app in the near future that specializes in gorgeous vegetarian dishes, explaining each step of preparation and compiles your weekly shopping list for you. I would also like to  make an e-book version of my book.

So KICKSTART MY DAY, AND FUND MY PROJECT TO MAKE IT ALL HAPPEN!

My thanks go beyond words. Let the love begin!

Risks and challenges

After I raise the money, I will first deal with all the promises made to the backers. I face the challenge to publish it.
The biggest risk I face is not getting my book produced by August
The printing takes 10-15 days, I will go to print right after the Kickstarter campaign finishes and trust that printer delivers the books in the promised time frame.I have to find the right t-shirt company to print and another challenge is to design the rewards given by backers who are willing to give 200 pounds/dollar or more, the artwork, because they have to be so original, functional and lovely to look at. This will take, if I work on it all the time, 1 week to get materials and some days to make them look stunning. If there will be no backers for this, I will have to skip it, or leave it for some other time.
Expenses quickly grow and add up. A commitment to creating excellent rewards and fulfilling them on time requires significant financial, emotional, and time investments, but I will deal with all of this to make all the backers and myself happy!
