The publicity tour that Brendan organised for me with Bloomsbury Australia was brilliant. From national television and radio to print media, blogs, webchats, a sit down dinner for 60, canapes based on the book, demonstrations, and anything that could connect readers and cooks to my book, I had the most exciting tornado of  a book tour that I could have dreamed of. Brendan was organised, professional, tough when he needed to be, fun to be around, and an excellent eating partner (which counts for a lot to a food writer). He even helped me prepare the food for one of my television slots and washed up afterwards! Brendan and Bloomsbury got weeks worth of publicity and events into days. I can’t recommend him highly enough. One tip, start a swear box as soon as you meet him, and Brendan will supply you with enough money to buy him a thankyou dinner!
