A recipe to be revealed

I just returned from France where the leaves began turning, the rain saturated color, and I wore a colorful scarf everyday.

Autumn had arrived in La Dordogne.

Just like these tiny, tiny crabapples.

The workshop went very well and I met some amazing women from all over the world. More on it later when I can catch my breath a bit.

And it’s finally October. October 2012, the month I so anxiously waited for the last two years as I was working on my book. Can I tell you how thrilled I am? I hope you will allow me to spend some time talking about it as the official publication date (October 23rd) approaches.

I also wanted to tell you that “Small Plates and Sweet Treats” is available for preorder right now. These are some of the book sellers in the US where you can order it from…

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Indiebound

The book will also be sold at Anthropologie, which I am really excited about.

It is also available for preorder in Europe from…

Amazon UK

Amazon France

Many of you have reached to ask me if it will be available in Australia. It will indeed in November. Please see here.

Oh, and it is currently being translated to German!

To celebrate the upcoming launch of “Small Plates and Sweet Treats” I would love to share a recipe from inside the book with you. How does that sound?

All you need to do is leave a comment and let me know if you would like to see a recipe for a savory small plate or a sweet treat.

Which one will it be?

Small Plate…

…. or Sweet Treat?

I will announce the winner tomorrow and will be back with one of my favorite recipes from inside the book. Hope you will like it too.

    Hi Aran,
    My name is Elena and I’m an avid reader of your blog and an even more avid tester and taste-er of your recipes;-)! I also dream to visit the Basque Country one day… It will be soon, I hope! And because we talk about dreams, I’ve dreamed about your natillas recipe (I guess that I’m in for the sweet treat;-)!) since your last autumn post about Vermont and your friend Nadia’s house on the hill!
    I can barely wait October 23! Could I send you the book for signing (we leave in Upstate New York and it would be difficult for me to get at one of your book signing events)? It would mean the world to me…
    Thank you!

  10. The photos themselves are very delicious. I love every single post here. All the best to the book launch!

  11. After baking so many sweet things, yesterday, I vote for a savory small plate, pretty please! =]

    and, simply, reading your posts and seeing your excitement and joy in what you do – I am/have been so happy for you!

    xxo

  12. Jessica says:

  17. El libro debe ser una maravilla y sinceramente con poder disfrutar de una de sus recetas ya me conformaría. Pero por decir alguna casi me decanto por samll.

    Besos,

  18. Asha @ FSK says:

    Congratulations on the book Aran!!!

    And I would love to see a savory small plate please..

  19. I am a fan of savory dishes in the fall, so my vote is for a savory small plate.

    p.s. I found your blog via Whole Living. Thought you’d enjoy knowing who your new subscribers are as a result of that gorgeous article.

  20. Definitely want to see a sweet treat! Congrats on the book!

  21. Sherri says:

    Will buy my book @ Anthro – my vote is for small plates

  22. Maude says:

    Ooo, this is exciting for all of us too!

    But how cruel of you to ask us to choose! I don’t want to choose, I want the whole book NOW!

    And since fall is here in Canada too, I won’t be choosing sweet or savory, but rather, something with squash. I bought several different kinds and need inspiration to cook them. :)

    Thanks for this upcoming sneak peek!

  23. Jessica says:

    Congrats! I vote for a savory small plate! I can’t wait to see which one is chosen!

    Victoria

    pd. ah, voto por receta salada!

  25. Yelle says:
