Just a quick head's up for those of you interested in Jane Lawson's cuisine and culture tours of Japan - our popular ZENBU ZEN TOUR for early 2017 SOLD OUT in record time!!!

* 7/8 update - just quietly  - one couple has had to cancel so two spaces have just become available on the above tour - but don't dilly dally!  

BUT  - the good news is that we've just announced a SECOND ZENBU ZEN TOUR which will run just a week afterwards! 

But you'd best be quick not to miss the EARLYBIRD SPECIAL! 

Please head on over to ZENBU TOURS for details

Interested in what other people have to say about Zenbu Tours? 
Well we'd very much like to share our TESTIMONIALS HERE and a little bit from the MEDIA HERE.

Excited & Nervous....

These are the two standard emotions which face off with against each other whenever I have a new book about to hit the shelves!
In just one short month my newest 'baby' MILKBAR MEMORIES will land and you'll have the opportunity to take a peek! And hopefully be more on the excited side and less nervous than me!

I reckon those of you who are fans of my book Grub -Favourite Food Memories ( a book I wrote almost 10 years ago now! eeek)  are going to DIG this - well at least I hope you do!  It's the cookbook of your childhood dreams... ;)

Even though I really, really want to - I'm not allowed to say ANYTHING more until the book is on sale or my publisher will beat me! 

Whilst I'll always encourage people to support your local bookstore - if you are going to buy online - do it with an Australian online bookstore.  

And on that.. I have some NEWS!!

 If you'd like to be one of the first to see Milkbar Memories  then please hop on over to Booktopia where they are offering an earlybird special for anyone who pre-orders a copy - an amazing 20% off the recommended retail price!  

I might have to buy some myself at that price! 

Anyway - I hope you like it! I'll be back to share more once MM is finally released!
