It's Out!

273358554_5216e2e477.jpg 

 
I hope you'll forgive me for returning to the subject of Jamaica one last time, but I have the exciting news to share that the last chapter in this nearly year-long odyssey is finally complete: our article is now out!

Yes, after we returned from Jamaica, Food and Travel Magazine accepted our write-up and pictures for publication and molded them into a story for one of their Gourmet Traveller features. And just this morning the issue containing that article came tumbling through our mail slot bringing to an end months of nearly unbearable anticipation.

So, dear readers, if you happen to live anywhere where this London-based magazine is sold, you can now pick up a copy of the November issue, turn to page 73, and see what our joint effort looks like in glossy A4 print. If you live in the U.S. there's a good chance your local Barnes and Noble or Borders carries F&T (though they might be lagging behind an issue or two).

p.s. You can find the entire story of our trip in this series of posts, just in case you don't know what the heck I'm talking about...

p.p.s. F&T also generously ran a mention of this website, so if you've found your way here through the magazine, welcome!

Like any of us would ever fault you for returning to the Jamaica feature? HECK NO!


I'm so completely proud and thrilled for you. I can't think of a more deserving writer.

Melissa, great site! the photography for your article is stunning -- does Manuel take the photos for this site, too, or are you also a photographer? Congrats on the publication!
October 21, 2006 | Unregistered Commentertb
Congratulations, my dear, it must be exciting to have copy in your hands at last. I will track one down here in San Francisco, so I can see you in all your glossy glory. Congratulations also to Manuel, the photos are gorgeous. What a talented couple you are!
October 21, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterTea
That is so exciting! Congratulations!!
October 22, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterAri (Baking and Books)
hi melissa, congratulations! finally......i think traveler's lunchbox devotees have been anticipating this day as eagerly as you and manuel have - has it been worth the wait? 110% yes!
October 22, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterJ
Melissa,

Congratulations! I've read the article and I think its a wonderful piece. It makes me want to go back to Jamaica (it's just too far from here). The photos, taken by Manuel, are beautiful.
October 22, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterReid
Bravo! Incredible photographs.
October 22, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterLoulou

October 24, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterjohanna
Hi Melissa, I was absent from the English side of the blog world for a while.Congratulations on the article. I just happened to see this issue of F & T at the newsagents in Canary Wharf where I work. I shall pick it up tomorrow and have a read and look at the article.If this site is anything to go by I am sure that it will be fabulous.
October 24, 2006 | Unregistered Commentervalentina
congratulations Melissa!
you totally deserve it, I always read you blog with so much joy...
can't wait to read the article...=)
October 25, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterjulia
Hi Melissa. Congratulations! Will go straight out and buy it (as if I ever miss one, anyway...) I think you have definitely just realised one of my secret dreams, so it's good to know that it's possible. Well done!
October 25, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterASMO
Thank you, thank you everyone! I'm once again humbled by such an outpouring of support - your comments mean so much to me!

tb - I do the food photography for this site, which seems to work well for us both as Manuel doesn't have the patience to tinker endlessly with plates of food and I don't have the patience to shoot anything that doesn't just sit still and let itself be tinkered with... ;)
October 25, 2006 | Registered Commentermelissa
Oh, this is soooo cool! I stopped by B and N to check it out.

For some reason, and entirely without justification, I feel proud.

Good for you, Melissa!
October 27, 2006 | Unregistered Commenterlindy
Hooray!!! Hooray!!

I'm so excited for you both! What wonderful affirmation. Hope to see you here in the PNW if your visit permits.
Best,

Heather
