Aggie MacKenzie cookbook to Pavilion

Anova Books has acquired a family cookbook and housekeeping guide by Aggie MacKenzie, presenter of C4 series "How Clean Is Your House?"

Pavilion senior commissioning editor Becca Spry acquired world rights Aggie's Kitchen Cookbook from Debbie Catchpole of Fresh Partners. Pavilion will publish in October.

Spry said: "Aggie is enormously popular and has a stellar track record as an author. She had a career in cookery long before she first appeared on our TV screens, and we are delighted to be working with her".

The title is "aimed at the modern family", according to the publisher, and will include recipes as well as  hints and tips on good housekeeping subjects, from planning a shopping list according to a budget to choosing the right kitchen gadgets.

MacKenzie's career has included a stint at MI6 and at Good Housekeeping, for which she still writes.
