Cover girl


No, I’m not not on the cover of anything.

I do make book covers, though. One of them was for Chef Theo Zaragoza’s cookbook titled Foolproof Favorites Vol. 1: Flavorful Heritage Dishes Done Right. The book was featured in Food magazine’s May issue.

That’s the book, at the top of the page. The photo used in the cover is that of Chef Theo’s Garlic Prawns, and is the work of Resultado, Chef Theo’s food styling company. The cookbook is published under my company Bronze Age Media‘s Readable Mangoes imprint.

Thank you, Food magazine!

The book is currently available as an ebook on Amazon, Smashwords, and the Nook bookstore. The print version will be available soon.

The second book in Chef Theo’s cookbook series is coming out mid-July. It’s titled Crowd Pleasers: Big food for big groups, and will also be published under our Readable Mangoes imprint. I tried to give the cover a more casual feel, as the recipes in the book are for cooking for friends getting together for something homemade, yummy, and filling.
