Hardie Grant acquires Karen Martini cookbook

Hardie Grant Books has acquired world rights to Karen Martini’s next cookbook for publication in 2019.

The Melbourne chef, restaurateur, food writer and food editor of Sunday Life magazine has previously published with Plum and Lantern, and the upcoming cookbook will be her first with Hardie Grant.

Hardie Grant Books publishing director Jane Willson said she is ‘thrilled’ to be working with Martini on the ‘next phase of her already formidable publishing career’. ‘As someone who has grown up with Karen Martini and has both a shelf full of her books and a folder of dog-eared KM recipe clippings collected over many years, I am thrilled by the opportunity to welcome Karen to Hardie Grant,’ said Willson

Martini said the book will be ‘an ambitious project that has been ticking away on the backburner (pardon the pun) for many years now’. ‘In many ways, it’s a daunting project, but also a  tremendously exciting one,’ she said.
