I make books… the kind of books you would enjoy on a Sunday afternoon with a nice cup of coffee!
There's something magical about books; the sweet smell of ink and paper, the feeling of the pages, the excitement of a new chapter, the improvised bookmarkers and the memories that stay in the little corners of each page, filling your home with stories within stories that will eventually pass to the next generation!
Books are special… and so is the people who read them!
In 2017 I made my first cookbook, The Forest City Cookbook! It was a tribute to memorable culinary experiences, antiques, ingredients, chefs, artisans and people who eat together. There is something humbling and sweet about working with your hands to make other people happy, and that's exactly what farmers, chefs and artisans do for us. Cookbooks speak about quality time with family and friends, gatherings around the table, passing recipes to the next generation and pressing pause to connect with others through food.
I had to wear many hats to make this project happen, from project manager to producer, creative director, brand specialist, web designer, editorial designer, food & portrait photographer, prop stylist, food stylist, videographer, blogger, writer, recipe editor, content creator, social media manager, administrator and finally... publisher!! I loved it all so much that making more books became the main focus of my career, marking a new beginning for me. Now I’d love to share all this passion for books with you, creating together your dream book too!
