Canongate are to make a move into cookery publishing this Autumn. Editor Jenny Lord has acquired Lily Vanilli's Sweet Tooth, by British baker Lily Jones, which will be released in September.
One of the founders of The Young British Foodie Awards, Lily runs a popular bakery in East London and has baked for celebrities including Elton John, Madonna and Nigella Lawson. Sweet Tooth is packed with techniques, unusual ingredients and imaginative decorating tips, as well as focusing on the core skills of baking. Lord pre-empted World rights to Lily Vanilli's Sweet Tooth from Jonathan Conway.
Jenny Lord comments: 'Aside from her thriving bakery, Lily is one of the most exciting, talented and intelligent young voices in food at the moment.’
