tasty sean

Latest Charity Project (text borrowed and paraphrased from Govi)

Charity Cookbook
As most of you will know Sean is the patron of the National Osteoporosis Society. A group of dedicated fans, including myself, has worked very hard on this project for almost a year.

The cookbook is all about Sharpe. Bernard Cornwell has written the foreword for the book and contributed two recipes, the two producers of the Sharpe series and the director have contributed too. All the photos have been donated by either Jason Salkey, Picture Palace or Rex Features (who hold all the old Sharpe Photos) for use in the book. All the Chosen Men have given recipes and to top it all Sean himself has endorsed the book and given them their own signed photograph.
They were lucky enough to have found themselves a Sheffield publisher. The man who has designed the book is a real Sharpe fan and this really shows in his design work. It is a real labour of love all round.
It is all in aid of the National Osteoporosis Society, they are to receive all the proceeds from the book normally due to the authors. The book will be released somewhere in November 2007, more news will follow once the exact launch date is set. The book will be available directly from the publishers, but also via (I believe Amazon US as well) Click on the thumb to see the full version of the advert !
