My name is Janice, and I am a ‘writer that cooks’!
I created Feast for gastronomic travellers, foodies and passionate home cooks, and all those who love beautiful culinary books.
I also created Feast to share my food journey, love of ‘slow food’, and the joy I experience preparing and creating delicious feasts to share with family and friends.
Feast also celebrates my books: Garlic Feast and Tomato: know, sow, grow feast.
Garlic Feast, a beautiful hard back coffee-table book celebrating all things garlic, won Australia Cookbook of the Year and Best Cookbook of the Year in the World (Self Publishing and Printing) at the Gourmand World Cookbook Awards in 2017.
Garlic Feast was also given the honour of being selected as a finalist for Best Cookbook of the Year in the World across all categories, at the same awards.
Garlic Feast then went on to win a Bronze Medal in the general cookbook category at the prestigious Independent Publisher Awards in New York in 2017 and in March 2019, was selected as one of the best Gourmand award-winning books over the past three years to be showcased at the UNESCO Building in Paris, a stone’s throw from the Eiffel Tower.
My new book published in October 2018 Tomato, know, sow, grow feast, co-authored with Penny Woodward and Karen Sutherland - a sumptuous tome celebrating both growing and cooking with heirloom tomatoes, won GOLD in the home and garden category at the Independent Publisher Awards in New York, in May 2019.
My next book, already well into production, will be an exciting addition to my collection of ‘feast’ books …. I can’t wait to share more details soon!
