The GOODS from Beaucoup Bakery & Cafe
Vancouver, BC | It was Betty Hung’s dream to one-day own a bakery. With this goal realized last year with the purchase of Beaucoup Bakery, she is now working on another life milestone, writing a cookbook. Slated for a 2018 release date, the theme is French baking 101 for the home cook.
“I love baking. It is apart of me and now something I breathe in every day, both personally and professionally,” says Hung, who owns Beaucoup Bakery with her brother, Jacky Hung. “I have always wanted to write a cookbook, even during my designing years. A lot of people may not know that in my spare time, I also write in my blog called YummyWorkshop, which I started before working at Beaucoup Bakery. It’s a place where I can showcase my recipe testing and more. And, it is through my blog that Page Street Publishing reached out to me about possibly creating a cook book.”
Page Street Publishing is based just outside of Boston and is distributed by Macmillan in the United States and Publishers Group Canada in Canada. The company is known to actively search out creative people whose passions and exceptional talents have earned them many fans, and whose expertise can translate into great books.
St Honoré by Betty Hung”Betty’s recipes are phenomenal and her passion really carries through into the book,” says Lauren Knowles, associate editor at Page Street Publishing Co. “Readers will love how Betty takes the often intimidating art of French pastry and makes it more approachable than ever.”
Hung is currently working on the recipes for her cookbook and adds, “It’s been a fun process so far and I am certainly very flattered to have Page Street Publishing contact me directly. It’s very exciting, and I can’t wait for what’s to come.”
More details, including book name, to be released later this year.
