Podcast 45 – Instagram, Venice and Cookbooks with Skye McAlpine

“In order to get anyone to read my recipes or my thoughts, it was important to have an appealing image.”

This week I talk to Venice-based food writer and blogger Skye McAlpine. Skye’s first cookbook,  ‘A Table In Venice’ came out last month, and represents years of work developing her skills as a cook, writer and photographer through her blog and Instagram account. We unpack the process of writing a book, teaching yourself photography and creating the perfect Sunday lunch.
