Join us in welcoming Rick Stein back to Falmouth for a public signing, to celebrate the publication of Rick Stein’s Simple Suppers.

Thursday 23rd November, 12:30pm
at Falmouth Bookseller

A brand-new collection of over 120 easy recipes from the best-selling chef and food writer.

‘These are my simple suppers. Recipes that are straightforward and informal – yet effortlessly delicious.

The idea of supper appealed to me because it suggests an ordinary meal. When one is not trying too hard; maybe something you’re going to cook in your jeans and Polo shirt, a glass of vinho verde on the worktop. Rick Stein’s Simple Suppers is your new go-to cookbook. A collection of stylish, easy recipes for midweek, weekends and every eventuality in between.’
– Rick Stein

For Rick ‘simple’ means that no recipe should take more than an hour to prepare (the Fast Suppers chapter is dedicated to recipes that take 30 minutes or less), the list of ingredients should be as short as possible and should (with very few exceptions) be readily available in any supermarket. Rick even has suggestions for some shortcut ingredients that he keeps in his pantry.

Rick Stein’s Simple Suppers is a cookbook full of personality with brilliant recipes accompanied by essays on everything from Rick’s love of salt to the inspiration behind a recipe to what he thinks is the perfect late-night snack. In this book, Rick has distilled a lifetime of knowledge and expertise to create truly simple recipes to cook again and again at home. Whether with his wife Sarah, with friends or his children, Simple Suppers is Rick at his most relaxed.

Published 26th October – signed and dedicated copies will ship after Rick’s appearance at the shop on 23rd November

Delivering Christmas by Liz Fenwick

We are so pleased to be working with Liz Fenwick again to bring you signed and dedicated copies of her special Christmas novella, Delivering Christmas. Those of you who have read The River Between Us will recognise the protagonist, Theo – though you can enjoy it just as much without having read River.

We’re hoping to get copies signed, dedicated and posted at the start of December – current dates are TBC as we await a publication date and find a time in Liz’s schedule to pop in to sign.

All she wants for Christmas is peace and quiet, and to be alone…

Theo Pascoe is relieved she finally has her cottage back to herself, after her beloved son, wife, and grandson move out to their new home. Christmas is fast approaching and she’s fully booked doing the work she loves, preparing Christmas decorations for the local hotel, running wreath-making workshops, and dressing clients homes for the holidays.

However her family and friend think they know best – that she is suffering from empty-nest syndrome and what she really needs is some romance back in her life. But that’s the last thing Theo wants right now!

As Christmas Day approaches Theo is looking forward to spending the day quietly at home, with just her cat for company. But she has just one last home to decorate when a sudden cold snap catches everyone by surprise and she finds herself stranded in a remote house with a client. Theo just wanted to spend Christmas alone, but it seems fate has other plans?

Pre-order: publication TBC but we hope to ship in early December

Song of the Huntress by Lucy Holland

Song of the Huntress recasts the folklore behind the Wild Hunt into a dark, feminist fantasy set amidst the legends and beauty of ancient Cornwall…

Britain, 60AD.

Hoping to save her lover, land and her people from the Romans, Herla makes a desperate pact with the king of the Otherworld. But years pass unheeded in his realm, and she escapes to find everyone she loved long dead. Cursed to wield his blade, she becomes Lord of the Hunt. And for centuries, she rides, reaping wanderers’ souls. Until the night she meets a woman on a bloody battlefield – a Saxon queen with ice-blue eyes.

Queen AEthelburg of Wessex is a proven fighter. But when she leads her forces to disaster in battle, her husband’s court turns against her. Yet King Ine needs AEthel more than ever: the dead kings of Wessex are waking, and his own brother seeks to usurp him. Ine’s only hope is to master the magic that’s lain dormant in his bloodline since ancient days. When their paths cross, Herla knows it’s no coincidence. Something dark and dangerous is at work in the Wessex court.

The Otherworld seeks to rise, to bring the people of Britain under its dominion. As she and AEthel grow closer, Herla must find her humanity – and a way to break the curse – before it’s too late.
