Hodder signs Alex Hollywood cookbook

Hodder & Stoughton has signed a cookbook by Alex Hollywood, the wife of "Great British Bake Off" judge Paul Hollywood.

Nicky Ross, Hodder & Stoughton lifestyle editorial director, bought world rights to two books by Hollywood from Borra Garson at Deborah Mckenna Ltd.

The first book, My Busy Kitchen, will include recipes that are “easy, inexpensive and just a little bit different”.

Hollywood is a self-taught cook whose recipes are inspired by her family’s heritage.

Ross said: “Alex’s passion for cooking is infectious and her recipes are delicious. For anyone who wants inspiration for quick mid-week meals, impromptu kitchen suppers with friends or relaxed weekend socials, then My Busy Kitchen is the book for you.”

Hollywood said: “Nothing gives me greater pleasure than preparing a meal for family and friends and then sitting back and watching everyone dig in. Over the years I've learned a few short cuts that mean I can get the food out more quickly and I will share those tips with you in this book."

My Busy Kitchen will be published in February 2015.
