Back to basics
I confess to being a book addict, specifically cookbooks. I buy a cookbook but never thoroughly explore one before another one catches my fancy – leading to piles of cookbooks just lying there on my bookshelf.
Does this resonate with you? If the answer is YES! ……read on 🙂
In this day and age when recipes are easily available with a single click, we are getting back to the Basics! A few of us have got together to form a Virtual CookBook Club -to revive the good old tradition of cooking from books.
You can join in too!
Let’s whip up recipes from those ignored cookbooks sitting prettily on our bookshelves, one book at a time!Join like-minded cookbook addicts in our Virtual CookBook Club.
Few FAQs to get you started:
How to go about it?
We will choose a cookbook for the Month. You can choose a recipe/s from the “Cookbook of the month” and leave a comment about it here.
Who can join?
CookBook addicts around the world!
When and Where?
This will be a Monthly event .You get a month to try recipes from the book. Add your review (recipes optional but not necessary) on your blog/facebook page/other online social media sources.
If you are not active on any of the social media platforms, you can post your review/feedback on our blog post for ‘Cookbook of the month’. Tag us (on twitter) or leave comment on that month’s page. You can use #virtualcookbookclub .We will do a round up at the end of the month.
- Time set aside – you will need to cook 1 (or more if you so choose) recipe/s from the book as is and then give your detailed review about the book, recipe, etc. preferably with a Feedback of changes that you implemented/improvisations that were needed to improve the author’s recipe.
- You will have to beg, borrow, buy, steal (ok not steal 🙂 ) the cookbook/ obtain from library or other sources. Book chosen will be readily available on amazon/flipkart/bookshop). Photocopies of the recipes will not be shared online.
