Revealing the Simple & Delicious Cookbook Cover

 In Cookbooks

I’m  so very excited to be sharing my cookbook covers with you… finally! As the book will be available in English & Afrikaans we decided on going for two different covers and I have to say, I am in love with both. Funny enough, neither of these photos were planned as cover shots. They were simply photos I took to accompany the recipes inside the book and actually had a different shot planned for the cover but at the end, these just worked so much better. I can’t believe that it’s only a few weeks before my book is available for purchase.
Simple & Delicious: Recipes from the Heart

 

Heerlik & Maklik : Hartskos

 

So, what do you think?

Next week  I’ll be doing a behind-the-scenes post and will be sharing my thought process behind the concept, recipes, styling and photography so remember to check in!

    Liefste Alida, ons was Sondag in die CNA en ek was alreeds by die betaalpunt toe my man jou boek in my hande druk en sê dis ‘n geskenkie vir my. Ek was in vervoering oor die resepte en kon nie wag om vanoggend iets daaruit te probeer nie! Ek het nog nooit van jou gehoor of van jou blog nie, maar ek besef ek het BAIE gemis! Ek het so pas die “Death by Chocolate Cupcakes” gemaak en ek wens ek kon ‘n foto aanheg. Die hele huis ruik daarna en hulle lyk fantasties. Baie dankie vir ‘n resepteboek wat so baie nuwe idees en resepte gee vir mense wat al moeg is vir die gewone afgesaagde resepteboeke.

      Ai Maggie. Sulke comments maak my dag soveel beter! Dit is presies wat ek wou gehad het met my boek. Nuwe idees met ou resepte wat vereenvoudig is. Ek is so bly jy geniet my kookboek en jy mag maar daai man van jou hou! Hy is defnitief ‘n keeper. 😉

    I am new to your blog and love it. Great work!

    Hello Alida
    Jou boek lyk stunning! Ek kan nie wag om ‘n kopie te kry nie. Ek kuier daagliks op jou blog en is altyd te opgewonde om te sien wat jy kook en die fantastiese stories wat jy skryf! In my opinie is jou blog een van die bestes ooit en ek kan nie wag om die boek te sien nie! Jy is ‘n inspirasie vir baie van ons!
    Baie geluk!!

      Jonathan, if you follow me on Twitter and like my Facebook page you’ll know immediately when the books are available. I know they are due for release in the first week of September but I’m not exactly sure which dates just yet.
