I have been in a total bunker for the last 4 weeks, producing content for the ebook version of the My Daddy Cooks. Videos, audio tracks, all sorts of stuff. It’s a huge project but I have seen the design proofs of the ebook and it looks fab. It will be available on itunes and on Amazon.
Meanwhile, I have received the first review of the book. It appeared in the latest issue of the Bookseller, which is the trade magazine for book sellers, independent shops and large groups.
Sue Baker wrote a piece on food books being published between March and August and said in her introduction that my book “has a strong “if he can do it, then so can I” flavour, and if you seek inspiration for family meals, there are plenty of good ideas here, no fuss, quick to table and easy to cook”.
She then goes on to review it separately:
“Nick Coffer began posting cooking videos on his blog, word spread and his talent and approach to cooking have led to this, his first book. Nick Coffer doesn’t cook without handicaps. Firstly, a tiny kitchen, and then there’s his son Archie, a highly active toddler who likes to get involved (and covered in anything remotely sticky). With or without Archie’s help, he manages to produce some seriously good family food. His blog has a passionate following and the book, too, allows the author’s engaging charm to shine through. He’s no professional but that only adds to the appeal.”
It’s almost exactly 2 months until the book launches on May 26th. In the meantime, you can pre-order it on Amazon by clicking here and it’s currently on special offer at the particularly tasty price of £11!!
