The Silver Spoon for Children

Spaghetti Blog naise

I thought I’d start with a couple of images from what was my biggest project (and probably most time consuming ever!) from last year: ‘The Silver Spoon for children’.  Published by Phaidon press and aimed at children aged 10-14 it teaches kids to cook authentic Italian food. It’s also pretty good for adults and most of the dishes are really tasty. I tried quite a few of them during the photo shoots, which was a lovely perk of this job! I thought I would be sick of Italian food after months on end of drawing it, but I love it just as much as ever, and even attempted one of the recipes at the weekend for my parents (the lamb with a herb crust)!  Anyway, here’s the cover and a couple of the inside spreads.


About time too.....

Hello.... It really is about time I started a blog. I have held off for too long and it really is so easy nowadays. As easy as falling off a blog, so to speak (sorry..) Well I say that, but I haven’t actually tried to post anything yet so let’s see. It’s all a bit new at the moment. It won’t be anything fancy, just a few bits and pieces about what I’m up to, the odd image or doodle and a bit of news.
