SPICE is Now Out in Paperback + GIVEAWAY

You asked for a paperback copy of my Kindle eBook SPICE, and I'm really pleased to be able to present it to you here. A look at what's different, what's the same, and me talking about it in a video. 😎

So SPICE, my ebook that has totally AIP compliant recipes for Indian, Chinese, Egyptian, British, American, South American and Thai inspired food, the one that encourages you to play with herbs and spices in your cooking, is NOW OUT IN PAPERBACK.  

Exciting, or what? 

It's taken me (and a lovely lady who worked with me) quite a few months to get this done, because I'd received lots of emails and messages from you all asking me when a physical, paper version would be out. I totally understand that many of you prefer to cook from books that are on paper in front of you, and you don't want to get your phone, tablet or Kindle all messy. Some of you tell me you like to make notes in the margins, which you can't really do with an eBook. 

So here it is. 

I'm totally excited to finally have it ready for you. 

It's pretty much the same as you'd get in the Kindle version, but there are a few changes. Have a look at the features of the print book here: 

  • There's a brilliant ingredients index in the back. Got some plantains you need to use up? Do a search in the index and you'll see all the recipes that use plantain, so you can choose. I love that this makes it really user friendly and helps you use up the ingredients you already have, saving money at the same time. Yay!
  • As in the Kindle version, you've got a dietary index, too. But whereas it's all clickable links on the eBook, here, you have page numbers that will direct you to the recipe you need. Cooking for someone that eats Low FODMAP? Coconut free? Flick through to the index and quickly scan all the recipes and choose the one you want to cook. Sorted. 
  • There's also an Index of Recipes sorted by genre of food - so if you want to plan an AIP Indian Fakeaway, just go to that section in the index, and you'll see all the Indian-inspired dishes. Same for Thai and Chinese. Curry Night is ON. 
  • The list of compliant spices in the front of the book has been ordered into a handy table, to make it more visually appealing and easier to read. 
  • There are slightly fewer images. This was to help keep the cost down, to make it affordable. I started AIP on a low budget, and so I'm always mindful of this when producing resources for the AIP community. The book still contains all the recipes in the Kindle version, and the rest of the images in the book are in full colour. 
  • The book is quite small, compared to other cookbooks - it measures 6 x 9". This was purposely done, to keep the costs down so that I can pass that saving along to you, as well as make it a handy guide to pop in your bag while you're travelling or going to the shops, for reference. 

Have a look at this video, where I explain more, and show you a sneak preview of the book...
