100% funded. You made it happen!

It's official. Sanjana Feasts, the cookbook is happening. Yesterday we reached in excess of 100% funding for this delicious ode to modern Indian cuisine. I couldn’t have done it without the 850+ people who have so kindly pledged over the past 4 weeks. Some of you may know that I’ve been food blogging for the best part of 14 years (!). It’s been a long road getting here. I’m electrified to be able to say this right now.

Over the years, I’ve developed hundreds of recipes, taught myself how to cook, style food, operate cameras and photography equipment, as well as learned to use photo and video editing software. I’ve done it so that I’m able to produce badass content in a way that brings the food I love to life. It’s exciting, detailed and visually beautiful for a reason — so that you can confidently recreate it at home, to enjoy with your friends and families, or even by yourself. After all, we eat with our eyes and food has the power to bring on all the fuzzy feelings. To teach, to share, and to connect with you through social media has been a pleasure and privilege. I’m ready for this adventure. Are you?

Next, I will complete the book, updating you as I go along. Please check the pledge page for the publication date, which will be updated in due course. There is a wealth of information here around what happens now the book is fully funded, the publishing process and when you’ll get your copy. I’m doing all of my own recipe development, styling and photography. For those of you who have pledged for Watch & Learn packages, there will be videos of recipes taken from the book, so I will be filming and editing those too. This tiger orange, new school, Indian vegetarian book baby is going to be a labour of love. All the best things in life are though, aren’t they?

Thank you. This means the world to me. Jaw-dropping Indian food incoming… roarsome.
