To be honest, it looks a bit crap on the Kindle and it costs £1.99 a month, whereas you can get it for free online. But I thought I would set it up just to see how the system works, rather than to establish a massive new revenue stream for W+K. And subscription does start with a 14-day FREE trial. After which, if your life and personal attractiveness have not been immeasurably enhanced, you can just cancel and return to your humdrum  existence. The choice, reader, is yours.

Secret Larder’s Small Adventure

This week saw the launch of James Ramsden’s wonderful book Small Adventures in Cooking (aka a chance to drinks lots of champagne and hobnob with the who’s who of food and cookery).

This week saw the launch of James Ramsden's wonderful book Small Adventures in Cooking (aka a chance to drinks lots of champagne and hobnob with the who's who of food and cookery).

James, a long time W+K  collaborator, is famed for his food culture blog and popular Secret Larder supper club held in the living room of his North London flat. 'Small Adventures in Cooking' is an accessible look at easy to pull together recipes and how small tweaks and explorations can hoist food beyond the everyday. James covers a wide range of eating oppprtunities from fast feasts, swanky suppers, lazy lunches to late-night munchies. Yum.

A special thanks to the W+K team who've supported James along the way: former Platformers Katie Harrison and Nicole Karelakas, plus Alex Franklin, Robbie Maynard, Nico Engelbrecht and Nev Brook. Will Hooke also gets a big gold interactive star for his Twitter # strategy that creates discussion around specific dishes with hints and tips. A cookery book first.
