Saxbys Ginger Beer Video

Here is a great video for Saxbys Ginger Beer from Australia. It is Gerry Anderson meets Mad Max.

If more TV advertisements were like this, I wouldn't need to mute them.

The All Things Ginger eBook

It has been a long time coming but here it is - the All Things Ginger ebook.

You may feel that you already know as much as you need or want to know about ginger – its health-giving properties, its many culinary uses and so on and so forth. But do you know the answers to these questions?

  • Which of Doctor Who’s incarnations had a penchant for ginger beer?
  • What sustained Richard Hannay when he was pursued by German agents across Scotland in John Buchan’s novel The Thirty Nine Steps?
  • What do Lady Gaga and Graham Coxon of Blur have in common?
  • Who was Tiddy-Doll?
  • How do you use a gingerbread barometer?
  • Who were the ginger chewers?

This ginger miscellany has been compiled to produce what I hope is an unusual and entertaining book on the subject of this perennially popular spice.

It will not tell you how to grow ginger, bake gingerbread or brew ginger beer, but it will give you hundreds of fascinating facts and amusing anecdotes behind the growing of ginger, the baking of gingerbread and the brewing of ginger beer.

The book is available on a number of e-readers:

I hope you enjoy reading it.
