Food & Drink
hello Summer A cookbook targeted at people who struggle with the ongoing dilemma of what to cook for dinner tonight! Every recipe is tasty, quick (real people quick not Chef quick) and has flavours enjoyed by adults and kids alike. All recipes are healthy, but the flavours are so great, you wouldn’t know it! There is a different recipe for every night of summer (plus some). Who will be Hungry for this book? • Busy People, • Healthy people, • Men and Women who struggle coming up with new ideas for dinner • Families who don’t have time to cook separate meals for the kids and adults • People between the ages of 30 and 50 who like good food • People who like great flavours, conscious of health and need to get dinner prepared fast.
What's your vision?
I am an unknown to the cooking and cookbook world, so I need to make sure the cover has super grab power. I need to look professional but not too fancy. I need people to see my cover, be intrigued and captivated and take me seriously. The front cover of this book will be what makes or breaks this whole business idea. This version is the summer version but there will be a separate winter cookbook, so keep this in mind when designing. Ideally a similar/consistent look which can be adapted to other seasons is preferred. I also have a party food cookbook (smaller book) to be launched in November and an afternoon tea cookbook (also smaller book) to be launched beginning next year. There will also be an iPhone App attached to the book. It’s revolutionary! As a result, the cover (front or back) will need to incorporate a QR code (to be provided later) which will have a sample of how the codes work with the book.
