I feel like Christmas has come early this year – I just got an email from my lovely book editor Linda, to say that the printing is done, the book is ready to hit the shelves and it looks pretty smashing. Prepare to take a bite out of Bitten. (*drumroll please*). If that’s not enough to induce toe-curling excitement in me I don’t know what is. And to add to that, I was having a browse around the other day (for no particular reason whatsoever of course) and just happened to stumble upon this…  Yip, the page is pending and I’ll be sure to let you know when pre-ordering is open for those of you living outside of South Africa who can be coerced into buying a copy 🙂

And just to whet your appetites, here are a few fun pics from the photo shoot for Bitten. to set your tongues dancing and send you on your merry way. This also serves as a small tribute to Bev, Lisa, Warren, Sarah and Jen who designed, styled, photographed and cooked their way through a mountain of meals and without whom (and along with Linda and the team at Struik/Randomhouse and YOU my trusty readers of course) we would have no Bitten. whatsoever. For that and so much more, I thank you.

Lisa (the nicest badass I know), Warren and Bev hard at work on their quest for perfection

Rob, oh so ready to be famous

And who needs elves when you have the indomitable Sarah (with my little Sophie) and Jen
in charge of the cooking and recipe testing

Hi Sarah I love cook books so will definitely look out for Bitten – the photo’s look amazing – nothing better than “eating” with your eyes! Thought I would say Hi – I see from your Bio that you also lived in Noordhoek (which I still do), a great place to be inspired! Keep up the inspired work! Fiona
