3.0 out of 5 stars A great place to start. 13 July 1998
By A Customer
If you are giving casual thought to cookbook writing, this book will provide the overview you need to understand the possibilities. It will either (a) develop your craving to create a cookbook, or (b) clarify that you don't quite have the appetite for such an undertaking. I wish the author had covered topics in more detail (but I always think that) and I wish the author had drawn from experience and stories beyond her own. But that aside, the book covers a lot of ground: creating cookbook concepts, getting published options, writing guidelines..... And should you decide you are moving forward (which I did), you can find greater depth of detail in other places (which I have). For example Recipes Into Type is an excellent reference on the technical details of recipe writing, but decidedly too dry for anyone not completely immersed in such activity. Writing Recipes is a fast, fun read. And, for me at least, it sparked ideas and motivation.
