Taste this book
There’s a scene in Julie & Julia where Julie Powell remininces about her mother cooking Beef Bourguignon from “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” by Julia Child for a special dinner for her father’s boss. Well, my father didn’t have a boss and my mother didn’t own a cookbook, but I, like Julie, love to pour over a good cookbook.
If you like to cook, you probably collect recipes all over the place like I do. I rip some out of magazines, tag the pages of my cookbooks, save them on my laptop, etc. Wouldn’t it be easier if I could just create my own cookbook? Welcome to Tastebook. TasteBook lets you choose from one of three levels — $19.99, $29.95, and $34.99 (each price corresponds to a certain number of recipe pages). Every TasteBook is customizable. You can choose a cover from six pages of choices, and you can include a dedication page. Tastebook lets you organize recipes you already have or allows you to purchase recipes from a variety of cooking websites and magazines like Food Network, Food & Wine Magazine, and Cooking Light. Not only is a great idea for your kitchen, but it is an excellent gift for the foodie in your life (hint, hint, hint!). Right now I’ve got about 5-6 cookbooks on my wish list and a “Not My Mother’s Kitchen” Tastebook is on the top of that list.
