From passionate home cook to Australia's most popular food blogger, Lorraine Elliott has her cake and eats it too – and she's never been happier.
Lorraine Elliott has long been a food enthusiast who believes cakes belong in an art gallery. Not so long ago she decided to ditch her day job as a highly-paid media strategist to follow her passions and become a full-time flogger (foodie + blogger). Her fabulous food blog Not Quite Nigella is now the go-to cyber destination for hundreds of thousands of foodies from around the world.
Not Quite Nigella, the book, is the story behind this journey. It contains the key to baking perfect macarons, the secret to winning a man's heart through food, tips on hosting unforgettable dinner parties and a how-to guide to creating a successful blog.
More than a celebration of food, Not Quite Nigella is chick lit come true - the inspiring and delightful story of a woman who finds the courage to follow her dreams.
