If you know me, you probably know that I believe a cookbook is the ultimate way to reach an audience you want to teach about food or cooking. In a kitchen, with tangible items like knives, cutting boards, and ingredients, a cookbook fits. And your audience, who’s hungry to learn about what you teach, or hungry for your nutrition message, is the perfect buyer for your your cookbook. There are even people who collect cookbooks, and don’t even cook, that buy cookbooks to read or as gifts.
I’ll never say that writing a cookbook is easy, because it’s not. But, it is very rewarding and an endeavor many aspire to undertake. The problem is there are many moving parts to a cookbook project. Many aspiring cookbook authors don’t know where to start, what to do first, and they worry about countless other things related to writing recipes, self-motivation, and “pulling it all together”.
If you want a to write a cookbook, I’m here to cheer you on. My desire is to teach you what I have learned as a cookbook author, editor, and contributor. In addition, I hope to save you time, money, and effort. There are mistakes to be made when you write a cookbook, but I’d prefer you avoid them, and get started on the right path.
To share these mistakes I plan to offer a free webinar. The webinar will be of great value to anyone who wants to write a cookbook. In the webinar I’ll discuss the 5 Mistakes of Aspiring Cookbook Authors as well as tips on how to avoid them. I hope to see you there. Click here or below on the gray box to enroll.
