Square Peg buys Channel 4 spice companion
01.08.12 | Charlotte Williams
Random House imprint Square Peg has acquired Spice Trip, a cookery book accompanying Channel 4 and More 4's prime time series of the same title for publication this autumn.
Senior editor Caroline McArthur bought world rights through Shirley Patton for Channel 4 in the book, written by chef Stevie Parle and spice expert Emma Grazette. Spice Trip will include more than 100 recipes, tips and alternative remedies, and aims to demystify spices.
The TV series will see Parle and Grazette travel to learn about the essential spices growing around the world-chillies in Mexico, cumin in Turkey, cinnamon in India, cloves in Zanzibar, nutmeg in Grenada and pepper in Cambodia.
McArthur said: "This is an extremely exciting addition to the growing Square Peg cookery list and a fantastic opportunity to work with the Channel 4 team and with a chef of the calibre of Stevie Parle, in whom Channel 4 are committed to investing just as they did with Jamie Oliver and Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall."
