After my Mum died suddenly in August 2007, I decided to pull together a collection of her recipes.

With the help of my sisters I tested and photographed all the classic family dishes we had grown up with.

The results were too good to keep to myself so I decided to self publish the book to celebrate the beautiful life of my Mum and share our family’s collection of simple, no-fuss Australian recipes.

A SUPER SIMPLE eBOOK GUIDE TO WRITING A FAMILY COOKBOOK

Last year, I self published my first print cookbook, ‘and the love is free’ to celebrate the beautiful life and cooking of my Mum who died from cancer in 2007. One of the things that surprised me most about the success of the book was the number of people who commented,

What a fabulous idea – I should do that for my Mum / family /children.

So I decided to pull together an instructional ebook to show people how easy it is to create their own professional looking, personalised family cookbook.

WHAT PEOPLE HAVE SAID ABOUT ‘HOW TO BAKE YOUR FAMILY COOKBOOK’

Paul

This eBook is for anyone who’s thinking about doing their own cookbook…. not just a family cookbook. Or even anyone who is thinking of self publishing any sort of book. Why? ‘cos it’s a wealth of concise, useful information.

Greg

I have some friends writing blogs about cooking. I would recommend HOW TO BAKE YOUR FAMILY COOKBOOK even if they don’t plan to publish a book. This eBook is great source of advice about writing, recipes and taking photos which are their main thing.

Jesse

I don’t know if my family has lots of recipes like most, but your eBook has inspired me to do some asking around! I would recommend this to people who like to cook; especially recipes handed down from their mother or grandmother. People who have close-knit families that get together all the time and hang out. I say them because they probably have a lot of family recipes and there’s a heritage that needs to be more permenant in book form, not just a collection of paper scraps. Then they can pass it on to their children and their children’s children..

barcelona for food lovers http://thestonesoupshop.com/barcelona-for-food-lovers/ Thu, 30 Sep 2010 22:57:04 +0000 http://thestonesoupshop.com/?p=41

barcelona for food lovers 3D cover

In December 2008 I couldn’t believe my luck. I still remember being so so excited and a little surprised that I had won the equivalent of the food lover’s lottery – Yes I had secured a reservation at the best restaurant in the world. I was off to elBulli.

And that’s how I came to find myself spending a wonderful six weeks in a little apartment in the beautiful city of Barcelona. When I started research for my trip, I was lucky in making some contacts through the good old friend-of-friends network. These were an invaluable resource for recommendations of where to stay and shop and what to eat. It was because of these brilliant people that I had such a wonderful time in Barcelona.

So when I found myself stranded in Ireland with the whole Icelandic volcanic ash incident, I took it as a sign to return to Barca for a few blissful days to catch up with friends and visit all the places I had missed out on last year.

This ebook is intended as a guide to anyone who loves food and is heading to the beautiful city of Barcelona. I hope the recommendations included in these pages inspire you to make the most of your time in the Catalan capital. It’s also for anyone who love a bit of arm chair (or desk top) travel and is interested in Spanish and Catalan food culture. It’s for those who would like to experience a little of what it’s like to eat, shop and cook in this magical part of the world.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT BARCELONA FOR FOOD LOVERS


Alex

Thanks! Just bought the ebook – it is definitely very useful. I tend to plan trips around meals as well and given I know I only have 7 days in Barcelona was starting to stress I could not fit everything in. This gives me a chance to stay focused when things get a little out of hand….and I can show the husband that icecream for dinner is a reality for other people as well 🙂

Steve Sagman

A friend who loves your blog sent me a link to your ebook and I have some amazing coincidences to share. We were supposed to leave NYC for Barcelona this past Monday but our flight was cancelled due to volcanic ash, so we’re headed to Barcelona in mid-June instead. You went to Barcelona because of the ash. We didn’t get to Barcelona because of the ash but if it weren’t for the ash we’d have never seen your book in time!

And we’re already reserved at the Casa Camper, recommended to us by a friend months ago.

So thanks for your great ebook. I’ve already enjoyed it, and I’m really looking forward to following your recommendations!


tracy in barcelona

I started reading your post and thought you’d been following me around town last week: lunch at the counter at the Santa Caterina Market, ice cream at Belgious (and patatas bravas from Bar Tomas – the best!)… all greats! Your Barcelona book looks fabulous — good luck!

kirsten

Oh, man, you hit up all my favorites and found a couple I managed to miss during my four months in Barcelona. Clearly I need to go back… thanks for the quick trip down memory lane. 🙂

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Jules Clancy [that’s me] is a full time food blogger and the type of girl who plans her holidays around restaurant reservations.

I’m a writer, photographer, food scientist, reformed winemaker, runner and aspiring minimalist. I live in Australia.

I was fortunate enough to dine at elBulli in December 2009 – a superlative food experience.

While discovering new places to eat and drink is one of my obsessions, I also love spending time in my kitchen and have been blogging about my simple [5 ingredients | 10 minutes] recipes over at Stonesoup since late 2005.

I’ve always loved the challenge of thinking up the perfect restaurant recommendation for friends, family and colleagues. There are few things more rewarding than racking your brains for the ideal venue, recommending it and then getting rave reviews.
