Confit garlic would not abandon you like a friend. Separate the cloves from 3 heads of garlic, keeping the skins on and place in a saucepan with a large glug of olive oil and a handful of thyme and salt and pepper. Heat on low heat for 1 hour, being careful not to fry the garlic. Remove from the heat and let cool. Remove the cloves from their skins and store refrigerated in a jar with the remaining oil. To serve, spread bite-sized toast with soft cheese and little garlic, finishing with torn basil leaves and a grind of pepper.

Her life is so full, so why is she hungry?

‘A deliciously dark tour de force’ Red
‘Intriguing, propulsive, delicious and ultimately satisfying... it’s a book you’ll want on your 2024 reading list’ Claire Daverley, author of Talking at Night



-------------------

For Piglet – an unshakable childhood nickname – getting married is her opportunity to reinvent. Together, Kit and Piglet are the picture of domestic bliss – effortless hosts, planning a covetable wedding ... But if a life looks too good to be true, it probably is.

Thirteen days before they are due to be married, Kit reveals an awful truth, cracking the façade Piglet has created. It has the power to strip her of the life she has so carefully built, so smugly shared. To do something about it would be to self-destruct. But what will it cost her to do nothing?

As the hours count down to their wedding, Piglet is torn between a growing appetite and the desire to follow the recipe, follow the rules. Surely, with her husband, she could be herself again. Wouldn’t it be a waste for everything to curdle now?

Piglet is the searing, unforgettable and original debut which is set to take readers by storm in 2024.
