Building the Perfect Cookbook
The Building the Perfect Cookbook Contest
The winner takes home a package of three cookbooks!
America loves cookbooks. We can’t get enough of them. As many as 18,000 of them are published each year. Many people treat the recipes like algebraical formulas, never a deviation. Others, like myself, rarely cook by a recipe at all but use cookbooks for inspiration.
But something that none of us who produce cookbooks have ever asked those who consume them is what exactly would you like to see in a cookbook? Is there a certain format you prefer? How about nutritional information, is that important? What is it you wish every cookbook included? Clearly pictures are something that everyone has expressed a desire for – you like food porn, we get it – but what else? Help us build the perfect cookbook.
If you leave your suggestion in the comments below you will be entered to win not one cookbook, not two cookbooks but three cookbooks! The winner (chosen at random) will receive one copy each of Amigeauxs: Mexican/Creole Fusion Cuisine, Third Coast Cuisine – Recipes from the Gulf of Mexico (both by Chef Stuart Reb Donald) and Substitute Yourself Skinny (by Susan Irby, the Bikini Chef), three cookbooks total.
CONTEST RULES: Just leave your idea for the perfect cookbook in the comments section. Enter as many times as you like but please leave a different idea with each comment. The winner will be chosen at random from valid comments to this post. Approximate value of prize package is $45 (American). Contest ends June 30, 2010. You must enter a valid e-mail address. You will NOT be added to any mailing lists, period. Your email address will not be saved, recorded or used for any reason other than notifying the winner.
