"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

What Makes Family Cookbook Project Special

When you are looking for a family cookbook publisher, you find that all of them are very alike. They all want to print your cookbook and offer covers, dividers and multiple type layouts for you to choose from.

Many cookbook publishers will give you a price for your cookbook based on the number of recipes and copies you are able to order. They then offer a litany of extras that can be added “for a few pennies more.” Boy those pennies can add up very quickly and trying to find out what you really need can be confusing!

Family Cookbook Project is different – truly different. We are more than just a cookbook publisher, our online tools are designed to help you contact recipe contributors and keep them motivated throughout the collection process. We make it easy to not only design your family cookbook, but to make it a reality.

For us, a family cookbook should not mean the editor does all the work. It should be shared by everyone participating. Communicating with contributors can mean making your deadline and keeping everyone motivated.

Even if you never print your cookbook, having online access to your family recipes means your family cookbook is only a computer away and recipes can be emailed in a snap.
