It is a amazing feeling to hold a book that you have written yourself in your hand. I will not deny that I am immensely proud about our books. I say “our” because my husband Andréas is in this too, even though you seldom see or hear from him.
We have invested a lot of hours in to these 200 pages with traveling, visits at producers, research, editing, planing, writing and of course a lot of cava tasting. It has been great fun, but also quite stressful because it is no vacation to write two books in almost two years, while at the same time having a “normal job”. And we had to do that because this kind of book will never be a blockbuster (do you even say that about books…?), and will never bring in any money. To be honest it is not even a break even game… I knew this from the start, but that does not matter. I have never ever gone in to the field of cava with the goal to “make money”. I DO IT BECAUSE I LOVE IT. I love the diversity, the land, the food, the warm evenings, the festivals and most of all the people and winemakers that have become our friends.
Writing these books has changed my life and if they can bring you some knowledge and maybe some nice moments for you, I’m more than happy!
Unfortunately my publisher has failed in making them available outside Sweden, but if you want to by one, just visit the shop here on the site and I’ll make sure you’ll get one.
