annaLa Varenne Alum, Anna Watson Carl is publishing her very first cookbook in a new and exciting way, with a Kickstarter funding campaign. Anna has decided to take her blog, The Yellow Table, and turn it into a book called The Yellow Table Cookbook: Celebrating the Art of Everyday Abundance. With cookbook deals hard to come by in this changing landscape, Anna is self-publishing, self-promoting, cooking, eating and chronicling the whole thing on her blog. I was simply amazed when I saw the quantity and quality of the content she is creating. I am so impressed with her creativity and innovation as she approaches this book.

N.B. This is the first in a series of posts that will feature the goings on of former La Varenne trainees and students. I must say I’m amazed by the many exciting career paths of La Varenne alumni. We’ll be sharing a selection of exciting projects from among the wider La Varenne family, which we think are intriguing and in an effort to highlight the endless possibilities one has in the ever-changing food world.
