Square Peg to publish Gobstoppers cookery book

Square Peg has acquired a cookery book which explores the history and traditions of sweets, to be published in 2014.

Publisher Rosemary Davidson bought world rights, all languages, for Gobstoppers, Humbugs and Peppermint Creams by Adele Nozedar through Isabel Atherton at Creative Authors.

The book will look at the traditional British sweetie, from Soor Plums to Yellow Man, Pontefract Cakes to Rhubarb and Custards, exploring their origins, stories and traditions, as well as giving recipes and tips on how to cook them at home.

Davidson said: "I am delighted that we'll be publishing Adele's new book on sweeties in 2014. Working with her on The Hedgerow Handbook has been the most joyful experience and I can't wait to get stuck in to the new manuscript in due course."

Nozedar's The Hedgerow Handbook will be published by Square Peg in spring 2013.
