When I took on the challenge of writing my first book this year, I honestly had no idea how much work was involved and how much help I would need along the way!
From the moment I signed the contract the process challenged me in all kinds of ways (writing 40,000+ words was just one of them) but I am so proud of BeachFit and can’t wait to share it with you when it is launched in Australia & New Zealand on 27th March next year!
Getting the book finished on time was truly a team effort and the support that I received was very humbling so today I just wanted to say a massive thanks to Rochelle and the team at Urban Castle for providing all the serving and tablewear that I needed for shooting all the new recipes that are getting released in the book.
The state of my current ‘tablewear’ wasn’t great and to be honest was still made up of a lot of engagement presents from 15 years ago, so when John and I sat down and thought about how to shoot all the new recipes (He had stepped up to be the food photographer for the book) we realised we were going to need some help… in stepped Rochelle from Urban Castle like my fairy godmother and in just a couple of days my kitchen was totally transformed with the most beautiful quality serving and tablewear you could imagine!
Urban Castle are a vibrant new company based in Queensland who only started in business this year, but who are already making a real splash in the online serving and tablewear market.
They sell all the professional brands (Churchill, Athena, Luigi Bormiloi & Moda to name a few) that are normally only available to high end restaurants like Three Blue Ducks in Byron Bay or Rick Shores but its now all available online direct to you from their website.
I am more than happy to shout from the rooftops about their amazing range as not only did they make the BeachFit pics looks amazing but I now have the most spectacular range of platters, plates and tablewear that you can imagine!
As a VERY special exclusive offer to my BeachFit community Rochelle from Urban Castle is providing a huge 20% discount on any orders placed between now and Christmas on their entire range!
The two weekends John and I spent shooting were total chaos but we ended up with 50 amazing new recipe pics that I can’t wait to share as part of the launch of BeachFit in just a few months time.
