Nine Bean Rows Books
Nine Bean Rows Books is a new boutique Irish publishing house for tastemakers and storytellers.
At Nine Bean Rows, we believe that there are two things that connect absolutely everyone, everywhere: food and stories. More people need to be able to share their food and by extension their story, which is why our first project, Blasta Books, will initially prioritise new voices in Ireland who have not previously published a book. Our aim is to provide a more inclusive snapshot of Ireland’s modern and diverse food culture.
Nine Bean Rows Books was founded by Kristin Jensen, who has worked in the publishing industry as a freelance editor and food writer for over 20 years. Kristin specialises in cookbooks and recipes and has worked with many of Ireland’s best-known chefs and food writers. She is also the co-author of Saturday Pizzas from the Ballymaloe Cookery School (2017), Sláinte: The Complete Guide to Irish Craft Beer and Cider (2014) and is working on a cookbook to be published in spring 2023. She is a member and the outgoing chair of the Irish Food Writers’ Guild.
