Find out where publishers look for inspiration, what you can do to get your book ideas in front of them, what’s selling, what’s not and the food trends publishers are interested in right now.

Kirsten Gilmore

Owner-chef Kirsten Gilmour draws on her Kiwi roots to turn out contemporary dishes with an antipodean love of fresh and bold flavours and, in her debut cookbook, she shares her secrets and inspirations with you. The Mountain Cafe Cookbook is packed full of Kirsten’s irresistible recipes for the best-loved dishes and drinks at her Highland restaurant, alongside others drawn from her grandparents and influenced by her travels around the world.This is not difficult, fancy restaurant cooking, but gutsy, fresh, hearty food that will taste just as good from your kitchen as from hers.

With vibrant photography by Paul Masson, The Mountain Cafe Cookbook has over 130 recipes including everything from Smoked Fish Chowder, Cider Sage Barbecue Chicken, Sloe Gin & Bramble Salmon Salad and Butternut Chilli & Coconut Fritters to Chocolate & Coconut Brioche, Cardamom Oranges, Badass Brownies and Passionfruit Melting Moments. All delicious and bursting with flavour.
