Hello and welcome back to another episode of the Cookbook Love Podcast. Today I am here to talk to you about an article in the New York Times (October 2, 2019) Would You Write A Cookbook For Next To Nothing? This article leads with a story of a food-blogger whose first publishing contract involved a very short deadline, no advance, and a non-disclosure agreement. When I first read the article I felt like they were making the case that writing a cookbook isn’t “worth it”. What I soon realized was that their model for measuring the “worth” of the project was all monetary: How much money did the author spend/earn. In today’s episode, I talk about the value of writing a cookbook beyond monetary measurement: the value to self, your business, and others. I hope you enjoy this discussion. And take time to read the article and the comments on the article. The link is below.
