Behind the scenes of a book launch!
Gosh, there's so much to do!
I'm rostered at work on Book Launch Day this week, but not to be deterred, I'm throwing a launch party there instead! I can't think of a better way to celebrate. Our nurses, radiographers, radiologists, sonographers and front desk staff have all been up to their eyeballs in Covid-19 precautions for months, and this will be a welcome treat!
I'm cooking up a storm of medieval food treats and doing a complete High Table setting with medieval reproduction plates, museum replica pewter jugs, acorn spoons, other pewter tableware and candlesticks. So many people STILL think of the Middle Ages as uncivilised and full of nothing but coarse pottery, so I'm determined to address that!
The Jenny from the book dedication will be receiving a short speech and a copy of the book in thanks for all she's done for me.
Our menu will include Spiced pears in elderflower, Elderflower cordial, rose cordial, almonds, cherries, apricots, olives, herb cheeses, egg & onion tart, fennel & pepper pottage, cheesecake decorated with borage flowers from my herb garden, honey-dipped figs and berry tarts!
I can't wait!
