Berry and Stein at star-studded Ebury food showcase

Ebury hosted chefs Rick Stein, Yotam Ottolenghi and Mary Berry in a star-studded bash at the Ham Yard Hotel in Soho on Monday night (10th July) as part of a food writing showcase for 2017.

Publishing director Lizzy Gray told attending authors, agents, retailers and press the event was an opportunity "to celebrate all your books - past, present and forthcoming".

Gray said each book was "a labour of love" between the designer, illustrator, editor, agent, and authors - thanking the latter especially.

Other authors present included Melissa Hemsley and 2016's "Great British Bake Off" winner Candice Brown, whose debut publishes with Ebury Press this week.

Ebury author Annabel Karmel, who earlier this year opted to self-publish her next title, Baby-Led Weaning Recipe Book, was also in attendance.

Authors' books for autumn 2017 were presented on a large screen as a backdrop while guests consumed cocktails and canapes.
