January 2017 I am reminded at this time of year of the precarious nature of small press publishing and single book publishers. Whilst there are conferences to do with small presses none of it can address the power of the bookseller in determining when enough is enough and deny the emergence of new works that happen to be published late in the year's cycle of publishing. As an aggregator for maybe 800 publishers we started the path to key title identification just after Christmas last year and through the year allowed new titles to be dropped into the program as we progress and as they are created. Problem is there are so many books available for the limited shelf space of the outlets, as well as the limited interest the marquee review columns allow for “locally” published works by small press and single book publishers. The internet then allows consumers to be made aware of ever increasing levels of new content information. So do you give up? Do I say to our publishers that the traditional Book Trade does not like new releases outside of the major houses at this time of year? It is tempting but not really a solution to the inevitable that creators are sometimes disruptors.(We all travel by Uber and accept that change – don’t we?) What the disruptor leads to is higher than normal migration to online purchasing – good for our bottom line, but maybe not so good for the traditional trade in the long term? I always have concern at the breadth of our sales via online vendors and with their unlimited databases and the simplicity of the "feed" they will continue to grow as it is relatively simple for them to pick up the daily feed and start selling – with images. We had a great October largely due to the media surrounding Food as Medicine, The Art of Frugal Hedonism, Sweet Greek Life, etc. Our authors are so hard working at launches, readings and savvy PR; I still get quite surprised at seeing the aggregate of our media through the publishers and authors when we release our “promulgation” newsletter and our new title release newsletter - thank you. Key work objectives for the next few weeks are to force the small press publishers and single book publishers who have worthy works to enter for next season's awards lists. I have to

Words From The Wise now go back over the last twelve months to pick the best and then advocate entry to respective awards – where the entry criteria allows. Thanks to Dave Pankhurst from the Book Connection in Dubbo for his newsletter - the ones about those mandated ones in Canberra - good reading. Also to Maree Coote who in the one weekend scored a mammoth review for Spellbound in Publishers Weekly, USA "an eye-catching collection" and the short listing of Alphabet City Zoo for the NAMI CONCOURS ILLUSTRATION AWARDS “This is a great thrill for the small independent publisher, Melbournestyle Books; In a field of 1777 entries from 89 nations, Alphabet City Zoo made a shortlist of 150 finalists - and only two of these from Australia.” In this catalogue of new releases the stand out looks to be Coast - Tasmania from Fullers Publishing. How lucky to have such a beautiful book to adorn the cover of the new releases; and the size! Clive Tilsley the publisher describes it; “big at 300x300mm coffee table size, 312pp and weighs in at over 3 kg. It is quite spectacular.” The beauty or privilege is that we will sell this globally. I also wanted to let you know I signed the Steve Potash led petition about the proposed merger between the International Digital Publishing Forum IDPF and the World Wide Web ConsortiumW3C merger. I have been lucky to have attended the IDPF conference for the last four years and have relished its educational ambit of both standards and opportunity. Strangely looking back on my notes from the 2013 conference I had made a note to follow up on who is the W3C; I also heard Sir Tim Berners-Lee this year at the IDPF conference. You can learn more about the proposed merger at http:// www.futureofebooks.info/ Finally we are still investigating a change to our freight contractor and if we can make financial sense of it we will move in the new year. We have redesigned the back warehouse to allow for the change. We now have to work out the cost efficacy of the change without interfering with our trading terms. I guess we are caught in a Catch 22 situation on this. Good reading and good selling DJ

World, Sydney Morning Herald and Radio National (ABC) Reviews Nick Lawrance, an antique map dealer, is shocked to find his gallery has been burgled. However, this isn't an ordinary  robbery: the thieves have ignored priceless maps and have only taken Bunting's World Map. All of a sudden, Nick is  thrown into a four‐hundred‐year religious mystery where strange people around him will do anything for this map...  even kill for it. Nick has to figure out why, before it's too late. Thrilling  and  steeped  in  dark  history,  The  Bunting  Quest  is  inspired  by  a  real‐life  map  that  displays  the  Australian  coastline  many  years  before  its  'discovery'.  Here,  two  compelling  adventures,  set  hundreds  of  years  apart,  come  together in this breathtaking page‐turner that reveals mankind's greatest secret.

RC Sports (WA) Pty Ltd

Doctor, hockey world champion, Member of Parliament, state cricketer, winning coach, bestselling author…the list of  this remarkable man’s achievements are little short of astonishing. In his latest literary offering, World’s Best, Ric Charlesworth gives us a clear understanding of what makes players and  teams – not just hockey teams – exceptional. It is this quest for ‘exceptionality’ that Charlesworth meticulously and  unflinchingly deconstructs, creating a picture where every piece of the jigsaw – whether it’s tactics, determination,  team culture or simply brilliant skills – plays its role in creating a masterpiece. Drawing on impossibly rich experiences in the sporting field, Charlesworth transports the reader on a fascinating and  at times heartbreaking journey of success and failure. From the disappointment of the Kookaburras 2012 London  Olympics campaign to the soaring elation of winning the World Cup in The Hague two years later through to the  sustained brilliance of the Hockeyroos, World’s Best masterfully plots hockey’s evolution in eloquent detail. Charlesworth’s record is unsurpassed by any other coach or team in the history of the sport, a giant of sporting  achievement, success and innovation. As with everything this favourite son of WA has done he has given us yet  another piece of brilliance – a truly exceptional Australian.

Martin and his father poured water from both hoses to flood the room in the Small Cottage, where inside a grotesque  blackened figure had just collapsed to the floor amongst the flames. Headlights were coming up the drive. A truck raced up the side road past the Big Cottage. More headlights appeared, more  trucks arrived. Voices shouted. Directions were given. Men were running. Water pumps began spluttering into life, their  noisy motors shattering the peace of the countryside as hundreds of gallons of water began bombarding the cottage on all  sides. This novel depicts the lives of three generations of the Nelson family.  Pa, the patriarch of the family and his wife Sophie  living in the main homestead and their son James with his wife Louise and their three children, Martin, Clara and Tania in the  Big Cottage. Together they face years of drought, of wool recession. Louise starts up a Craft Cottage Industry to involve many farmer’s  wives around the township. But the farm slowly slips into the red, and the family are forced to adapt. A rural tourism  industry develops and produces untold benefits for the family. Join the Nelsons as they cope with tragedy and distress as well as finding eventual contentment.

A collection of 24 stories written by talented authors. No two writers are the same, but they have one thing in  common: they are storytellers at heart and their deepest desire is to be heard. Writing the Dream shares the stories of  twenty‐four Australian writers, from emerging to established authors. Some are traditionally published, while others  have taken the self‐publishing route. Some have faced rejection after rejection, while others have had a dream path.  But, while their writing journeys are different, all of them strive to create, entertain, inspire and inform. And all of  them have unique and creative voices that deserve to be heard. With contributors including Anna Jacobs, Juliet  Marillier, Natasha Lester, Jenn J McLeod, and a host of other talented writers, the stories in Writing the Dream are set  to strike an inspirational chord in every hopeful writer's heart.

In Australia, the elements dominate our senses. Fire, Earth,  Wind, and Water – they bring awe, silence, fear, contemplation, beauty, all at once. Australia  Elements presents the creation and identity of today’s Australia through its maps, histories and  myths. “Australia, an island like no other,” the book begins. Its  mystery lies in its extremes, vastness, and isolation. Caroline Bouquet, author of Mapping Sydney, continues to  delight. Her sensitive text and exquisite drawings embrace the powers of nature, and the  expanses of time and space.

Very few Australians today know of the fierce air battles fought across the Top End of Australia in World War II. For more than two years Japanese aircraft crossed the coast and bombed relentlessly. Savage dogfights were fought between the legendary Zero fighter and Allied Kittyhawks and Spitfires. Big twin-engine Betty bombers rained down blast and fire upon airfields and towns, even penetrating as far inland as Katherine, some 300 kilometres from the coast. Nearly 200 Japanese aircrew died in the onslaught. This book lists all of their names and describes all of the combat missions – and reveals for the first time that the number of combat flights, aircraft shot down, and aircrew who died is far higher than previously thought. Scores of aircraft were downed in combat operations ranging from Exmouth to Townsville, with the majority of action taking place in the Northern Territory. This new extensive research shows the number of air raids was higher than the previously suggested figure of 64, with 77 raids on the Territory alone, while 208 enemy combat flights were carried out across Northern Australia. 186 Japanese airmen died when their aircraft were brought down. In many cases their bodies lie in remote sites across the vast bush and coastal waters of the north. Many of the wrecks have never been found. The Empire Strikes South describes all of the aircraft used, and gives an insight into the world of fighter pilots and aircrew. With a full range of new colour graphics by renowned illustrator Michael Claringbould, this significant new research reveals a battle for Australia that has been previously unknown.

No-one will ever know what made him do it. Teddy Sheean was part of the evacuation of his warship, the corvette Armidale sinking fast while around it swarmed Japanese aircraft, shooting with abandon. Teddy turned back to his gun, an Oerlikon 20mm anti-aircraft cannon with a broad leather strap to secure the gunner. He began firing...a courageous Tasmanian was determined to do his best to save his mates and his ship. No member of the Royal Australian Navy has ever been awarded a Victoria Cross. Of the 100 so far given to Australians, 96 are to the Army and four to the Royal Australian Air Force. It was not from lack of bravery that this unjust situation has arisen. It derives from substantial unfairness. In World War I and II, the RAN had to apply through Britain's class-bound Royal Navy for any such award to be made. This book focuses on a naval sailor who should have received a VC. Honour Denied - Teddy Sheean, a Tasmanian Hero, also: - Reveals the secret engagement Teddy Sheean kept concealed from his family - Lists for the first time the full list of Dutch soldiers who died when HMAS Armidale was sunk in 1942 - Compares the bravery of Sheean to two other Australian naval heroes – who should also have been decorated with the Victoria Cross - Reveals the reverse of what other writers have suggested: the Royal Australian Navy was proud of Armidale and her fight, and did not cover up her loss Author Information Dr Tom Lewis OAM is Darwin-based military historian. He is a former naval officer and the award-winning author of 14 military history books.

Scenic photographs of the spectacular Tasman Peninsula area are scattered throughout the book, and Eloise counts the cover  photograph of sunrise at the Tessellated Pavement at Eaglehawk Neck as one of her triumphs.  “I tried to get this picture on three  different occasions, and finally the conditions were just perfect and could get the picture that I had been imagining!” said Eloise.  This photograph was picked up on social media by Tourism Tasmania, Tourism Australia and local tourism associations, receiving  over 80 000 ‘likes’ on social media channels.

Available Now The book contains very detailed information on the common symptoms of not only prostate cancer but other less  critical diseases of the uro‐genital system. A comprehensive questionnaire will help men or their wives or partners  pick up any changes that could be early warning signs. It goes on to explain in great detail the steps that should be  taken if a problem is suspected and the steps the medical professional will take to determine and treat the cause. When asked to read and evaluate the book, Peter Dornan, founder and convenor of the Prostate Cancer Support  Group wrote, 'When I was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1996, at the age of 52, as a health professional, a  Physiotherapist, I was embarrassed and angry that I did not know what my prostate was, where it was and what it did.  This is the book I would have loved to have at the time.  Every question regarding anatomy, disease processes, decision making procedures for the treatment and  considerations of the side effects, psycho‐social effects and the impact on relationships, are concisely covered – all in  layman terms. The most important section, dealing with the modern research of parametric MRI during diagnosis, is  particularly useful.'

In this book of poems and meditations, Paul Kraus brings together the best modern teaching on healing, albeit from a  predominantly Christian viewpoint, even though he is a Holocaust survivor of Jewish origin. He tells the amazing story  of his journey through cancer to a richer life. He coped with the most devastating diagnoses by opening his life to deep  prayer. Each illness was a time of transformation of body and soul, firstly through meditation which brought a healing  light to shine in and around him and then through the positive emotions which stilled his worried mind. As a result he continues to grow in faith in the Divine Healer whose power came directly into his being and was also  dispensed by the ministry  of gifted health professionals. He writes about doctors who can blend scientific skills with  the mystery of the human person, about inspiring ‘sufferers’, about the strength given by family and friends, about the  therapy  of love, music and laughter – but most specifically he speaks of poetry.

Author Information Paul Kraus is a Holocaust survivor and mesothelioma patient (living in Newcastle). Kraus was born in and survived a  Nazi forced labour camp during World War II. In 1997, he was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a type of cancer caused  by asbestos.   He published another religious poetry book, Prayers, Promises and Prescriptions for Healing in England a  few years ago, which sold well in England and Australia. He is also the author of Not So Fabulous 50s: Images of a  Migrant Childhood and Surviving Mesothelioma and Other Cancers: A patient’s guide.

Guards stay at their posts, and die to defend their cities… Southerner Sergeant Kearney “Red” Redguard is the last of a disgraced family, and a loyal guardsman. And with a  murderer stalking the streets, the city guard is his city’s best defense. But in the North, King Caedmon Taranisäii is gathering his army, and the cruel Night God prepares for the downfall of  the South. A new dark griffin roams the land, warning of the war to come.

As the storm of World War II breaks, Mick O'Regan is a  peaceful Sydney working‐class boy. Yet he and the shining  youth of his generation are cursed to enter a world of high‐ speed life and death. Like first‐time Aussie backpackers they  cross the planet to save the British Empire, their job on arrival  the most dangerous of the War: flying for Royal Air Force  Bomber Command.  Based on a true Australian war story only now being brought  to life by author Justin Sheedy's vivid historical fictions,  "Ghosts of the Empire" is also a story of young people living  life to the full while they can ‐ in a blacked‐out world where  dance partners, sex and death flow in equal abundance.

At the beginning of World War II, Britain was in the deepest  trouble imaginable. 5 minutes flying time away crouched a  monster. Alone against it, Britain called out to her Empire. For  pilots. From all corners of that Empire, they volunteered. Only  the best & brightest were chosen. Australian Daniel Quinn was  one of these young men who came to fly against the monster.  They had a 1‐in‐3 chance of survival. "Nor the Years Condemn"  is based on the true story of the young Australians who flew  Spitfires against the all‐conquering might of Nazi Germany. In  their late teens and early‐20s, for the job at hand they had to  be the 'shining ones', rendering the death of so many of them  doubly heart‐rending for the reader. 

To abandoned child, Colin Stone, World War Two grants an  escape from the mean streets of St. Kilda. A natural warrior,  his talents qualify him to join an elite group of young men. The  shining ones. Who fly Spitfires against Nazi tyranny. Rising with  them, from the top Colin Stone looks down on a world that has  doomed his first true friends. Bringing to vivid life true Australian war history and events,  "No Greater Love" is a saga in the classic mold, featuring the  drama, beauty, heroism and horror of one young man's war  journey through stunning Malta, Egypt and North Africa, Sicily,  England and Europe. It is a portrait of the once‐in‐a‐lifetime  characters the war places on his path, of the tragic, wholesale  waste of war, on occasion even the profound humanity of his  enemy, and of his evolving perception of his world for what it  is.

SPELLBOUND by Maree Coote (MELBOURNESTYLE BOOKS, 9780992491727) is positively reviewed in the October 31, 2016 issue of PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, USA (circ. 16,554). In an eye-catching collection of "letter art," Australian graphic designer Coote reveals how letters can be used not as the building blocks of language but of artwork. A section titled "Architext " features typographic recreations of famous buildings from around the world -- swoopy capital Rs and Ds form the distinctive shells of the Sydney Opera House, for example, with rolling S waves below -- while the second and third sections, "Alphabeasts" and "Letterheads", show how letters can be transformed into portraits of animals and people. Throughout, Coote encourages readers to try their own hand at making letter art, offering pointers, different skill levels and challenges, and information about typography itself. Readers will finish the book both awed and eager to embark on their own typographical experiments. Ages 7-up. Publishers Weekly, USA Alphabet City Zoo (Firm Sale)

A Darker Magic This Way Comes is the first tale in Merlin's Secrets, a series of five books. It is an epic and fast‐paced  story of love and war, knights and wizardry, angels and goddesses and the cosmic clash between Darkness and Light. It  re‐imagines the Arthurian legend, as narrated by Merlin. But who is this Merlin?   Set in the turbulent and brutal times of the fifth and sixth century, Merlin also writes of his love for a fairy from the  Otherworld, Emily Charlotte Hughes, a high school student from twenty first century Exeter in Devon. Throughout the  hundred years of the Merlin's Secrets series, Emily and Merlin swap the narrator role to give the reader both  contemporary and historical insights into the characters and the story.  But the young lovers will be separated by their  complex destinies and will only have a short amount of time together. The characters are engaging; Emily lives the life of a modern intelligent sixteen year old, yet she falls in love with  someone who has a squillion hits on Google, and whom she knows has been dead for fifteen hundred years. Merlin,  like an ancient prophet, meditates in caves where he has been known to talk with archangels. He has the ability to  become entangled with evil and not be tarnished by it.  In A Darker Magic This Way Comes, the young lovers engage with Moloch, the Prince of Lies, and Morgana, a  sorceress of immense power, when Emily, whom they call the Chosen One, is abducted. She has to find the answer to  why she is "chosen" in this exhilarating mix of adventure, myth, and magic where nothing is as it first seems.

Author Information Carmel Niland, a successful senior bureaucrat in NSW, was for over thirty years an outspoken civil servant involved in  leading agencies on women, racial equality, human rights, disability services and child protection. Surprisingly, parallel  to her life in the public sector was an inner world deeply rooted within English history and within that her particular  interest in the great Arthurian legends.  Carmel lives in Sydney, this is her first novel.

This story chronicles a largely unknown but important aspect of 20th century Australian political history during the  Cold War, when the Communist leadership closed down many Jewish organisations and declared Zionism an  ideological enemy. Soviet Jews often suffered hardships, not being allowed to enlist in universities, work in certain  professions or participate in government.  For three critical decades, 1959‐89, Australian Jews and their community leaders were deeply involved in the  international Soviet Jewry movement, with distinctive contribution to international affairs by some leading Australians  including Bob Hawke, Garfield Barwick and Malcolm Fraser. By any measure, Australia played a role above and beyond  what might be expected from a middle‐ranking nation with limited international influence. But the lead actor was Isi Leibler, and this is very much also his story. Widely recognised and honoured internationally,  his involvement and leadership ‐ his 'magnificent obsession' ‐ with the refuseniks and Soviet Jews, merit a full account. The emigration of over a million Jews to Israel, after an international campaign lasting more than three decades,  redefined the notion of human rights. Indeed, Natan Sharansky, the leading 'Prisoner of Zion', claims it as the 20th  century's most successful human rights movement. 

Author Information Sam Lipski is a distinguished Australian journalist. He has worked for The Age, The Bulletin, The Australian, the Sydney  Morning Herald, and was the Australian Jewish News editor‐chief 1987‐98.  Suzanne D. Rutland is Professor of the  Department of Hebrew, Biblical & Jewish Studies at the University of Sydney and the main lecturer in the program of  Jewish Civilisation, Thought and Cultures. She has published widely on Australian Jewish history.

The Ladder is Simon West's third collection of poetry, and his first in four years. Many earlier preoccupations return‐ the natural environment, Italian art, the dimensions of place. There is a new focus on worldly and artistic  responsibility, and finding that 'certain poise' of 'being in between'. At the collection's heart are the building blocks of  language, along with the more literal ones of Rome, where some of these poems were written during a residency at  the Whiting studio in 2012.

Author Information Simon West lives in Melbourne. He is the author of First Names (Puncher & Wattmann 2006), shortlisted for the NSW  Premiers’ Prize and winner of the William Baylebridge Memorial Prize; The Selected Poetry of Guido Cavalcanti  (Troubador Publishing, 2009); and The Yellow Gum’s Conversion (Puncher & Wattmann 2011), shortlisted for the  Queensland Literary Awards. He is represented in anthologies including Thirty Australian Poets (UQP) and Young  Poets: An Australian Anthology (John Leonard Press).

Carmel Bird wins 2016 Patrick White Literary Award The annual award was established by Patrick White using the proceeds of his 1973 Nobel Prize for Literature, and is traditionally awarded to authors who ‘have made a significant but inadequately recognised contribution to Australian literature’. The award does not involve a submission process, with writers being ‘automatically eligible’. Judging panel chair Bernadette Brennan said Bird had ‘contributed widely and uniquely to Australian literature since her first book in 1976’. ‘Carmel has since gone on to publish thirty more books—her imagination is extraordinarily wide-ranging and her fiction consequently creates a world that criss-crosses textual, intellectual and geographical boundaries,’ said Brennan.

Australian Heroines of World War One is the story of eight  courageous women through diaries, letters, original  photos, paintings and maps.  These eight women had the courage and strength for which the Anzacs are renowned and the compassion and  tenderness that only a woman can bring.  One brave nursing sister Hilda Samsing became a whistleblower. Nursing aboard the hospital ship Gascon, outraged by  the bungled evacuation of wounded Anzacs which was  censored out of the press she let her diary be shown in high  places which raised questions in the House of Commons. In Belgium, Louise Creed, a Sydney journalist caught in the besieged city of Antwerp made a hair‐raising escape from a  German firing squad and lived to tell the tale.  Brisbane's Grace Wilson, ordered to establish an emergency hospital on  drought ridden Lemnos Island, arrived there to find suffering Anzacs but no  drinking water,  tents or medical supplies.  Grace and her nurses tore up their petticoats to use as bandages, survived for weeks on  bully beef and biscuits and  saved the lives of thousands wounded at Lone  Pine and the Nek. In November 1915 after a blizzard hit the trenches of

Since first publishing Elizabeth Woolcock's tragic story ‐ No Monument of Stone ‐ extensive additional research by the  author has uncovered much more evidence than was available at the time of his initial writing. This later book ‐ Dead Woman Walking ‐ now contains that information. Information that perhaps one day may  instigate an official investigation into the case and consequently lead to a posthumous pardon being granted for  Elizabeth, for being denied access to fair and impartial justice at her trial in 1873, and thereby being unjustly convicted  and executed for a murder she did not commit.

They say roses are red ... but I’ve seen different. A sweet and playful story about looking at life from a  different perspective. Author Information Scott Rheuben was born in Sydney, grew up in Lismore and then studied health services management and human resources in Brisbane. He has worked in pubs in London, backpacked with a suitcase around Europe, travelled in a van around Australia with his wife, and is now re-settled on the far north coast with his wife, young son and two dogs. After more than thirty jobs before the age of forty, Scott has finally discovered his place and can truly pursue his passion. Though his writing has been cultivated behind the scenes for years with poetic verse and a fantasy-adventure novel, he has now found his niche in children’s books with Roses are NOT Red. ‘Your potential is exponential but inconsequential, if you just sit still.’ Find out more at www.scotter.com.au About the Illustrator Joanna Cuskelly was born and raised in Hampshire, England. She travelled to Australia in 2008 and made it her permanent home after meeting her husband there. Jo now lives in Outback Queensland with her husband, two young boys, three chooks and a dog — all competing for who gives her the inspiration to draw, versus who allows her the time!

Praise for Sarah Brennan "Hong Kong's answer to Dr Seuss, Sarah Brennan has taken Asian history and given it an unexpected twist. (Her) rhymes will delight and charm readers of all ages, while Harry Harrison's illustrations are as fresh and entertaining as always." Susan Ramsay, South China Morning Post "One of Hong Kong's most unlikely yet perfectly complimentary partnerships. Let's hope their stories travel far beyond the South China Seas" Clare Morin, TimeOut Hong Kong “A wonderful romp through 1920s Shanghai, packed with historical sites, sounds and characters that kids will love. Brennan and Harrison’s latest tale sweeps you back through the days of the city’s glamorous past in this wonderfully illustrated children’s book, complete with a charismatic mob of animals out to win the day” Helen Roxburgh, Books Editor, Time Out Shanghai “Watch out, kids – Sarah Brennan and Harry Harrison are roaring into the 20th Century! The place, Shanghai. The event – the Annual Race. The city’s high and mighty will be there, determined to win the race. But the poor of Shanghai have two aces up their sleeve – Tommy Tan, the fastest man in town, and Rickshaw Rooster, the cockiest bird around!” John Carroll, Professor of History, University of Hong Kong

Offering a unique partnership for Australian booksellers

Publication Date; 1st December 2016 Price:£25 ISBN: 9781527203341 BIC Code: WBN/ WBA Binding: Hardback Size:246 x 280 mm Pages: 232 pages in full colour A special edition cookbook for #CookforSyria to raise additional awareness and funds for the world’s largest humanitarian crisis, with all profits going to Unicef’s Syria Relief Fund. About #CookForSyria ... ●Curated by award winning Instagram star ClerkenwellBoy (Winner "Best Instagram Feed for Food Lovers") and Serena Guen (founder of Suitcase Magazine and Unicef UK’s ambassador for Next Generation London) ●The pair originally came up with the idea to curate one charity dinner, for one night with one chef in aid of Unicef UK's humanitarian work helping children and refugees affected by the crisis in Syria. ●This quickly became a large scale charity banquet with six headline chefs which sold out within in days. ●Leveraging the power of social media, top chefs, cookbook authors and families with links to Syria were encouraged to get involved by sharing their favourite recipes online with a #CookForSyria inspired twist - so that anyone could host their own charity supper club at home, bake sale or just learn about the amazing cuisine and culture of Syria. ●As recipes flooded in, it made sense to share these beyond social media and in the form of a beautiful not for profit recipe book.
