My Heart Covets...

Penguin Books is due to publish a beautiful new series of paperbacks entitled Great Food. These 20 handsome books will combine stunning cover design with essays and recipes out of four centuries of food writing, by authors and cooks like Elizabeth David, Mrs Beeton, Samuel Pepys, and Claudia Roden. I found out here that each cover reflects a decorative ceramic style corresponding to the period of writing. And the famous little penguin logo was made to hold a knife and fork! Be still, my beating heart...

Each title will cost £6.99 and should be available in your bookstore of choice from 7 April. It's a shame that I will miss spring entirely. Because I will be caressing (maybe even reading) these books!
