Remember, Remember the 5th of November: Guy Fawkes Day

LUNGDON launched

Catching up again…

Was launched at Uncommon Objects in Austin, with the very brilliant Pascal Simon of Bake Austin baking Parliament.

Foulsham launched

For the book launch of Heap House the ever brilliant Pascal Simon of Bake Austin made an incredible Heap House cake. For Foulsham’s launch, Pascal dreamt up this absolutely delicious recipe for Forlichingham Pie which features in the book.

Pascal’s pie was gobbled up with great gusto and gone in seconds. After it had gone we missed it terribly.

                 You can make Forlichingham Pie at home, I heartily recommend it:

Meanwhile HEAP HOUSE was a NYTimes Notable book in 2014, an NPR best book of the year and a Kirkus best Teen book of 2014. The paper back of Foulsham is out in the UK, and the hardcover is out in Canada and will be out in US very soon. And the Iremongers have also appeared in Russia, in China,
