Inside Quench (+Giveaway!!!)

I might be finishing up one book (due to my editor October 1st! It’s go time!), but I’ve got another one publishing right on its heels. Quench, an idea I dreamed up back in autumn 2011, officially publishes next month! Pictured above are some images from inside the book. They’re pictures of pictures, so they don’t do the real images justice. Trust me when I say, though, that they’re genuinely lovely. Jen really captured some beautiful images with this book, and I can’t wait for you to see them!

Currently available for pre-order, you can also give a go at winning one of 10 copies over on Good Reads. Ten copies, friends! Those are pretty good odds. The book is divided into two sections: Soft Drinks includes recipes for beverages considered “Refreshing”, “Invigorating”, “Satisfying & Indulgent”, and “Comforting” while Hard Drinks offers tipple designations like “Spirited”, “Warming & Fermented”, and “Festive.” There are also a host of guest recipes from well-known bloggers and food purveyors, as well as 10 essays all entitled “Quenched” which detail a recipe included in the book and when I considered myself to have been quenched by it. Because who doesn’t love a good anecdote alongside a recipe for kombucha or hard cider?

I’ll post recipes and more from the book as it approaches publication (which also happens to be Huxley’s 4th birthday, woohoo!). Until then, winning a copy sounds like a pretty good prospect to me!
