Party Food for Girls at the Oxford Farmers Market (with photos by Bron Marshall)






Photos  by Bron Marshall ©





Another wonderful Canterbury Farmers Market, and another busy morning. Once again we got up early to go to the Oxford Farmers Market, where we met bookseller Emma from Emma's at Oxford  to set up the Party Food for Girls' stall. In no time I was busy showing little ones how to make sugar roses, and signing books, and, if you remember this post, I said that I really needed a photographer because it is so hard to take photos myself, plus this time I was alone: Arantxa was at What Now with the brother!
And guess what? Food stylist and photographer Bron Marshall came over, and these are her photos, 1000 times better that I could ever have done!! Thank you Bron, you are a star!  I also would like to thank Emma's at Oxford  for hosting the presentation, and The Press Section Editor Kate Fraser for her article about Party Food for Girls in the paper, and for visiting my stall on Sunday.

  13. wow, what lovely photo's! It was a pleasant surprise to see Bron's daughters on the photo and even a bigger surprise when I saw you are the author of a lovely book that we borrowed from the library recently. We made your grissinin sticks from the book with great success! We live in Christchurch but when visiting Oxford we always visit Emma's bookshop.

  14. Ciao Marietjie, thank you for the message, I am very happy that the grissini were a success, and i hope that you will enjoy the rest of the book too :-). If you live in Chch you can find it at Mercato and at the Children bookstore, and of course is at Emma's at Oxford too!

    Ciao

  15. Hi Alessandra - thanks for visiting our website as well! Our 10 year old daughter loves your book and it was returned with a heavy heart so it makes sense to have a copy of your book on our bookshelf. Just a question - I used 3 teaspoons Surebake in a bread machine with success but if I remember right the recipe called for 2 teaspoons yeast. Would it be Surebake or active yeast?
