  • 'The first series of Blasta Books isn’t just a breath of fresh air for the cookbook publishing world; it’s a veritable hurricane. Kristin Jensen’s first volumes –Tacos, Hot Fat, Cookies and Wok – are smart, beautifully written and gorgeously designed. They are that ideal thing: both functional cookbooks and delightful, sassy objects.' – Jay Rayner

  • 'This is the simple, undeniable state of affairs right now: I have fallen in love with Lily Ramirez-Foran’s beautiful little book, Tacos, and I can’t wait for you to as well! It’s a real shout-it-from-the-rooftops moment.' – Nigella Lawson

At Blasta Books we have been inspired by Seth Godin’s advice to ‘make things better by making better things’, so we will be donating 1% of the net profits from all sales of books and merchandise from now until the end of 2022 to UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency. 

So now when you support the Blasta Books project, you will also be helping UNHCR to protect people forced to flee their homes because of conflict and persecution. Together, we are all making more room at the table.
