Happy 2016. And…some news…

Mrs. Shopkeeper had to burn several drafts of Veggiestan II before she was happy with it....

Yeah, well, I’m really really sorry that I haven’t been here for a while. It is chiefly the fault of our little cafe (which is effectively an outpost of Veggiestan – what do you mean you haven’t been yet…?), as it has kept me and Mr. Shopkeeper ridiculously busy. This is a good thing, not least as it has enabled us to test lots of new recipes on our unsuspecting customers, but it has impeded important activities such as the filing of nails and the updating of blogs. Harrumph.
The other thing that has kept one away from on-line postings is Veggiestan II (working title)*, which is due out in the Autumn of 2016. We are very excited.
In the meantime, we wish you a very happy 2016.

*I did campaign for it to be: Veggiestan II – the Revenge of the Aubergine, or some such silliness, with Mr. Shopkeeper and I on the front cover in spandex waving ray guns. Guess I’ve been watching far too many bad movies.

    Well, as I’ve been a veggie for a very long time, and particularly keen on the middle eastern kitchen, I’m very very happy with my own copy of Veggiestan (in dutch) for the past year or so. Both my husband and me often read some passages to eachother because we like your colourful style of writing. I’m delighted to see there possibly will be another book in the shop soon. Any idea when it’ll be published and if there will be a translation in dutch available too? If so I’ll run to the bookshop and buy myself a copy (or 3, they make perfect gifts too).
    Thanks for making my kitchen smell deliciously and open doors in the minds of my children about “strange food” too ????

      Hi Muryel,
      Thank you so much for your sweet comments.
      Persepolis is out now, but I do not know if it will be available in Dutch soon – I will ask my publisher 🙂
      Do come and say hi if you are ever in London – Veggiestan is now a real place as we have an in-store cafe!

      All bests,
