Yippee! Proofs finalised and away we go!

I can now breath again, as I begin the arduous mountain of tasks necessary to get everything in place for the launch on 19 September, 2011. The big load is off my shoulders with the final proofs approved and ready for print.  Our baby is now in the hands of the midwife (the printers) and we’re ecstatic to know we are almost there.

I cannot tell you how exciting it is to be able to get this baby out of the womb and we can’t wait to show it off to the world!

So I am going to give you a second peak inside the book…this time I thought you might like to see one of our knives pages.

I’d love to know what you think, so please leave your thoughts below.  Chad told us the print team at Vanguard Press all like the look of it, so that’s a good start.

So here you go…

A fantastic resource for every kitchen, the guide is designed for both men and women and is the culmination of over 35 years of entertaining experience.

“Grace is definitely the hostess with the mostest and her philosophy for cooking is simple…great food that is easy to make, tastes fabulous and looks sensational,” says publisher, Hayley Solich.

“Being a butcher, you will love Grace’s butchers tips throughout the cookbook, whether it is how to spot a great cut of meat or which cut will best suit what style of cooking, you will love her perspective.

“And you will also enjoy Grace’s anecdotes from her life as a butcher…a little about the woman behind the cookbook and the amazing people that have graced her table.  This really is so much more than just a cookbook…it’s a complete entertaining guide on how to entertain with grace.”
