Chef, restaurant, and hotel cookbooks

For the culinary professional or restaurant, a cookbook is a valuable marketing tool. When you self publish a cookbook, it brings instant prestige and sets you a notch above the rest. It will create opportunities for you to approach the media for interviews and stories. You can also use a cookbook as a gift to reward loyal, repeat customers or attract new customers.

Home chef cookbooks

Passionate home chefs are certainly making a mark in the cookbook world. Self publishing a cookbook gives foodies the ability to get their unique cooking voices heard and their treasured recipes out into the world for all to savor. You can be certain that local communities and media will support home-grown cookbook authors and their newly published cookbooks. So, better start practicing your radio and TV interviewing skills! Cooking demos and author signings are another popular way to get your self published book into readers’ kitchens.

We look forward to hearing all about your cookbook.
