Angela Flack isn’t edible and nor is her book. But that’s the name she has chosen for this great piece of work. With 90,000 words and nearly 500 pages you could say this tome is her life so far – her culinary journey. It has been painful for Angela – and anyone who has an allergy to dairy or wheat will understand this.
What I love about ‘Edible’ is that Angela did this without little help. She dragged herself through the creative process – and licked the wounds afterwards – with no guru to guide her. And what a learning experience she has had. Her passion drove this. From writing, photography, printing, fund raising and distribution. It sells, it looks great, it is a wonderful achievement and many are raving about her work.
Angela bought a small Canon Powershot s100 camera – which was perfect for macro photography without breaking the bank. She created the recipes, prepared the dishes and took the photography. Many of those who funded the project hoped and prayed she would deliver the goods. She did. And what an accomplishment – it’s hard covered and the pages are thick. But your copy should soon be covered with food – as any good cook book should be.
In this radio interview Angela talks about her journey. She raised $15,000 through a Kickstarter campaign.
Being self published means Angela Flack also handles distribution – already she has over 40 outlets in NSW alone as well as selling on line.
Angela is now learning about the media and how it works. As well as my interview, The Macarthur Chronicle has helped with this great story – Angela Flack – Edible. We all love someone who creates – but someone who drives themselves to achievement is very special.
I am sure Angela has only started on this journey. She has a wealth of knowledge and energy.
Please pass me another macadamia and date ball please Angela.
