We are delighted that Robinson have acquired The Seasonal Baker: Baking All Year Round, the debut book by Michelle Evans-Fecci.
Commissioning editor Tom Asker acquired World rights to the book from Northbank’s Martin Redfern, and will publish in hardback and ebook formats on 19 May 2022.
Former The Great British Bake Off contestant Michelle Evans-Fecci was known on the show for her flavoursome, colourful bakes and for championing locally sourced and homegrown produce.
Michelle’s first book The Seasonal Baker will feature a collection of recipes straight from Michelle’s kitchen with an emphasis on special occasions such as Easter and Christmas, as well as ways to cook with seasonal produce, and hints and tips on how to grow your own food and save money. Michelle grew up on a farm and loves using seasonal food to create tasty recipes for her family to enjoy.
Michelle said, “My first book, The Seasonal Baker, is filled with colourful, flavoursome bakes for all year round, straight from my kitchen to yours. I hope they become firm family favourites in your home as they have in mine. I am delighted to be working with Tom and the talented Robinson team.”
Tom Asker said, “I’m so pleased to be working with Michelle on her brilliant first book. So many of us have tried to be a bit more self-sufficient over the last year – whether that’s baking our own bread or trying to grow vegetables in the garden – and The Seasonal Baker will provide plenty of inspiration and encouragement for anyone who wants give it a go.”
