Apron Strings Launch

Just like a child on Christmas week I am giddy and bubbling with excitement. As I type this post, my book Apron Strings is being printed and bound and very soon it will be making its way to bookshops nationwide. To celebrate the release of my new book I'm proud to announce that the official launch will be held in my home-town of Moate, Co. Westmeath, on Thursday the 16th of May, from 6-8pm. The venue is a mere stone's throw away from my home, in the very beautiful heritage centre Dun na Si.

As for the special guests of the evening, the choice for me was easy. I've received much advice and support from my fellow food bloggers. A great resource for any of us bloggers is the Irish Food Bloggers Association. The two ladies who had the initiative to set up this organisation are Kristin Jensen and Caroline Hennessy. They are both wonderfully supportive to the IFBA members and are always on hand when advice on blog posts, recipes, photos and even grammar is needed. Apart from all of these attributes both Kristin and Caroline have become good friends of mine, over the past few years,  so I was over-joyed when they both agreed to travel to Moate to launch my book.

On the evening, cheese and wine will be served as well as a few cakes, the recipes of which are featured in the book. I'd like to extent an open invite to anyone who would like to come and celebrate the evening with me. I have a tendency to go overboard with baked goods, for any event, so you are all more than welcome to come along, relax and enjoy some cake. The official publication date for Apron Strings is May 22nd, but advanced copies of the book will be available to buy at the launch. There may even be little goodie bags to accompany any copies bought on the evening. I hope to see you there!

How exciting Nessa! I agree with Lilly - the cover is great. Wish I could be there on the 16th but I'm shooting for next issue of ISLE magazine and my parents arrive that day from America - there in spirit!
