Finally, after 16 months of writing and research, we’re done with our manuscript for EAT GOOD FOOD, the Bi-Rite book to be published by Ten Speed Press in October. I could not have come close to finishing without the help of the entire Bi-Rite team, Ten Speed and my brilliant and tireless co-author Dabney Gough.
It’s been a long process, and we’ve learned a ton connecting more deeply with vendors and producers– we’re excited for you all to read it. If you want to check in with some of our staff to see what they think, it’s in their hands right now to read through for the first time.
Over the months of writing the book I re-visited many of the farmers, ranchers, winemakers and other food producers we feature, and caught a few moments on film. Here’s a quick clip from our visit to Straus Family Creamery–you can see Dabney for a brief moment too:
Now it’s time to tackle the cover! We’re pushing for a photo-less cover (today’s norm for most books is a full bleed photo cover)– something timeless and classic, like the exterior of Bi-Rite. We want the experience of opening up the book to be like walking into the store–a burst of color with mouthwatering texture and information.
