Social media has been buzzing this week with food fanatics tweeting, blogging, reviewing and posting about new book on the shelves, ‘The Five O’Clock Apron’, written by Guardian columnist, chef and all round super-mum Claire Thomson.

The book, published by Ebury Publishing and lovingly designed here at Interstate, is intended to inspire parents to create ‘proper’ meals to delight children and adults alike (..albeit later with a touch of salt and a glass of wine!)

We are so pleased to see the amazing online reactions this beautiful, Bristolian book has received –  we think they speak for themselves…

See more on ‘The Five O’Clock Apron’ here.

A Taste of Essex http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-taste-of-essex/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/a-taste-of-essex/#comments Wed, 11 Jul 2012 13:00:39 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2137 At the end of last year, some of us were lucky enough to have been invited out to deepest Essex by Jamie Oliver and his team to help kick-off the creation of his new book, ‘Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals’.

We had a fantastic few days sampling some of the dishes cooked by Jamie whilst brainstorming, sketching and working up some concept ideas using David Loftus’ always beautiful photography. Check us out…

Jamie’s 15-Minute Meals will be published by Penguin books and hitting the book shelves late September 2012. Have a look at some other Penguin and Jamie Oliver books we have designed here.

Triple Decker http://www.interstateofmind.com/triple-decker/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/triple-decker/#comments Wed, 11 Apr 2012 11:03:30 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=2038 My long time friend David Loftus launched his very own cookbook ‘Around the World in 80 dishes’. What is very special about David is that he is a photographer who has such a creative eye that he not only makes food and its surrounding look stunning, but captures the story behind the food at the same time.

His first book tells a wonderful story through food and epitomises David’s amazing and beautiful skill.

Spotted in Waterstones Chiswick were three books, David’s own, Two Greedy Italians Eat Italy and Jamie’s Great Britain no less, on the ‘New Books’ stand – all shot by David.

Jamie’s Great Visit http://www.interstateofmind.com/jamies-great-visit/ http://www.interstateofmind.com/jamies-great-visit/#comments Fri, 01 Jul 2011 14:15:25 +0000 http://www.interstateofmind.com/?p=1638 A VIP visit from Jamie Oliver to the Interstate studio.

]]>

It was a busy time for Interstate last week as we delivered 9 months worth of design for Jamie Oliver’s latest cook book to Penguin Publishing. Due for release at the end of September 2011, ‘Jamie’s Great Britain’ celebrates the best regional dishes from around the country, all beautifully photographed by the one and only David Loftus.

Jamie was really excited to make his last minute tweaks and sign-off the design of all 408 pages when he came in for a few sessions the week before, tweeting from our studio “Cool I’m very happy, just finished my British cook book – a year in the making”.

We can’t wait to see all of our blood, sweat and (almost!) tears bound into the finished piece – we’ll share the project with you in full in the Autumn…

Apologies for the voyeuristic images; the team were hard at work with no time for posing…
