Paperbooks signs Flitcroft's festive food

Paperbooks has signed a gift book based around Christmas food by writer and surgeon Ian Flitcroft.

The tongue-in-cheek book, called Oh Come All Ye Tasteful: The Foodie's Guide to a Millionaire's Christmas Feast, will be a lead title for Christmas, released on 31st October 2014.

Editor Laure Parsons signed world rights in a deal directly with the author.

The book will provide recipes and commentary on a variety of unusual festive dishes, from truffled turkey to reindeer nibbles. Flitcroft, an eye surgeon based in London, is an enthusiastic foodie, and his previous food-related title, a novel titled The Reluctant Cannibals, was published by Paperbooks' sister publisher Legend Press in 2013.

Parsons said: "Ian’s passion for food is infectious and this book is perfect for anyone who likes to impress in the kitchen."
