This workshop Gourmand World Cookbook winner Jennifer Cockrall-King and chef Shane Chartrand shares what it really takes to make a successful cookbook. Whether you are hoping to turn your family’s treasured recipe collection into a beautiful keepsake or you want to land a deal with a major publisher, writing a cookbook is more than just a collection and transcription process. Learn about the fundamentals of writing solid recipes, how to make sure they work in most kitchens, and find the thread of a story line that pulls them all together. Then consider photography and other important publishing decisions–whether you work with a publisher or go it on your own.
