Top With Cinnamon, The Cookbook!!

Trailer 010

The book can be ordered here: (UK)  Waterstones (UK)   Foyles (UK) (US)
Booktopia (Australia)
The Book Depository (Worldwide)

It has been about a year since I started making my book and today is when I finally get to tell you as much info as poss about it. Mainly I wanted to show you the cover, cos unless you’ve looked it up or seen it on instagram you probably have no idea what it looks like at all.

Other little facts are that it contains 75 recipes, both sweet and savoury! I think like 3 of them are from the blog but the rest are completely new. There are a few gluten-free and vegan recipes in there too (Many of the recipes which aren’t gluten free/vegan would be easily adaptable to suit your dietary needs). I tried to create a balance between the indulgent stuff (like ‘bluebarb’ streusel pie and stromboli) and healthier things (like chickpea + pomegranate dip and banana buckwheat muffins) so there’s something in there for everyone.


US cover

It looks slightly different in the US, with a dust jacket cover as shown above. If you want the other cover though just take off the dust jacket and there ya go! The UK/AUS cover is underneath so you can take your pick 🙂

book 020

Every recipe in the first 5 chapters has a full sized photo to go with it. In the last chapter there are a few photo grids (you can see an example of one near the bottom of the page for making pastry) and some lifestyle shots mixed in with the recipes. There are also even more lifestyle shots throughout the whooole book…

…In other words there’s MANY photos in there, all styled and taken by moi 🙂

    Also, so excited for your book, even though I’m slightly gutted I won’t be getting that awesome dust jacket.

    And as long as I’m in the country, wild horses would not keep me away from your launch!

    See you on Thursday!! xx

  4. I’ve been lurking for a while, but had to come out of the woodwork to say this looks beeeautiful! and exciting! So wowed and impressed, and excited that you’ll be cooking lots more in the next year — I was worried that uni would steal you away from the food blog world.

  5. Congrats Izy, looks beautiful! Preordering now! Ps. I studied food science and nutrition, too, because food. 😉

  6. Congrats Izzy!!! The book looks awesome! I wish I could come to your book launch and eat cookies to celebrate 🙁 but I’ll be looking for it in the States!

  7. Congrats, Izy! I just pre-ordered (just a heads up your Amazon/US link is broken or maybe it’s just me but it wouldn’t work for me). My book comes out a week after yours and this is such an exciting time, isn’t it! I can only imagine how gorgeous your book is…CONGRATS!

  8. pre-orded the hardback coopy izy.. love you work so excited to have a copy of your book!

  10. HUGE congratulations, Izy! I’ve been following your blog for years, and it is so amazing and exciting to see big things happening for you… especially this cookbook! Wow, everything looks so beautiful and amazing (your styling and photography are beyond) Best wishes to you as you continue to cook and begin your studies at Leeds for food science and nutrition (that was my major too!)

  11. I am SHO EXCITAMAAWESOMETED for you! I’ll show the U.S.-side support and pre-order on AmazonASAP. Totally worth it, and totally worth every kudos you get. Cheerios, gal–you’re a superstar!

    It’s so nice seeing how far you’ve come:)

  13. Oh goodness gracious. This has got to be one of the most gorgeous cookbooks I’ve ever seen and I’m only looking at snippets. Your style is impeccable; gets me every time. I SO wish I could come to London just to meet you and have your signature, but I’ll settle with a preorder for now. You totally deserve this.

  14. IZY,
    I jumped in my skin when I read about uni… You are so freakin focused for your age. My momma always told me to hang around with the smart ones. I’m so proud of myself for following YOU !! and your photographs !! Good Lord, really know it must have been tough to choose between cheffery ( ahem ) and photogreffy , hoho… JK…We all know where your true passion lies and how hard you have worked to get it out there. Ordering manana..

  15. Congratulations! The book looks fantastic…I am always the biggest fan of cookbooks with multitudes of photos. Can’t wait to get a copy sent to Australia! 🙂

  21. Hi Izy, congratulations on both your cookbook and A-lavels! I’ve been observing your blog for some time now, and I know a lot of people have been doing so, as well. You don’;t have to worry about people not showing up at the book launching. I’ll come over, at least to congratulate you in person.

  22. Long-time lurker, first-time commenter! This looks beautiful and I’m kind of ashamed at how much you’ve achieved at such a young age compared to my limbo-like post-graduate existence 😐 ha. Also YAY LEEDS UNI I am also a London gal who made the Northern transition, though I’ll be returning to London next month for grad school. Any questions about Leeds hit me up, I know all the best place (not) to throw your guts up after too many cheap doubles 😀

  23. I am 100% so f*cking happy about this book. The book video? Amazing. That song? A jam. ALL OF IT? SO GREAT.

  26. Congratulations it looks fantastic! AND I saw the first recipe in my feed today over at Take a Megabite
