I’m so lucky to have Susan Franey on board. She’s a reader of mine, a foodie, and an amazing photographer in the UK. I wondered if anybody had taken any photos of our recipes, and up Sue popped.

“What with having no job to go to at the moment because of Covid-19, I’ve got time on my hands,” she said. “I’ll make some of the recipes and take photos.”

Then began a time when every morning I opened my emails, and there’d be one from Sue containing beautiful photos.

“We really like the Arabic salad,” she wrote. “We’ll be making that again.”

Or, “The pistachio and rose petal ice-cream was so delicious I made a double batch so we can have it tonight as well. I used roses from my garden.”

Lucky me. I’m really excited about the coming cookbook.

The Kindle edition is already available to pre-order. Two Old Fools in the Kitchen will also be available in paperback, and as a full-colour cookbook in September 2020.
