We have had such an exciting few weeks here at the bakery launching our first gluten free recipe book! I never realised the amount of work that goes into writing a recipe book, and now that it is launched it is such a thrill to see our names and images in the press, thank you to those lovely journalists who are writing about us here in our bakery in Cork. I must say it is very rewarding to see something that I have worked on for so long to be now available in book stores nationwide, I really am delighted!
We were thrilled to attend the Cork Chamber after hours event at 66 South Mall on the 15th of April where we first launched our book. Denise was kindly invited to speak and was given the opportunity to thank the wonderful Cork Chamber and AIB bank for their tremendous support throughout her years in business. Denise reminisced about the fantastic support that AIB offered Delicious in 2012 with the creation of our very own television advert which hugely increased the awareness of our brand from the beginning. Denise was delighted to be able to present our beautiful new book to John O’ Doherty of AIB and also to Eoin Gunn of AIB as a thank you for all of their fantastic support.
Denise’s proud parents Michael and Mary were also there on the night. Many of the recipes featured in Denise’s recipe book are handed down from her mother and grandmother, and so Denise’s mum is so proud to see these recipes being shared with coeliacs everywhere. Denise’s father is the chief taster of the family and it was his diagnosis of coeliac disease that motivated Denise to begin her journey into free-from baking. We are always happy to see Denise’s parents pop into the bakery as we always gather to enjoy some freshly baked cake!
Once the recipe book hit the shelves Denise took to the road and visited a number of beautiful book stores in Cork and Dublin to personally sign her gluten free recipe books!
Denise visited Eason’s, WH Smith, Hodges and Figgis, Vibes and Scribes and there will be many more book stores to add to the list in the coming weeks! We are absolutely thrilled with the feedback so far and really appreciate our friends and customers for letting us know how much they enjoy baking with our recipes. If you want to let us know about which of our recipes are your favourite please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or find us on Facebook and Twitter!
