-- June 02,2010- Elle, author of the blog Elle’s New England Kitchen has contributed her mother’s famous potato salad recipe and the story behind it to 55 Knives. The recipe has been handed down from her grandmother, and has been perfected over the years. Served at every family gathering since Elle can remember, it was--and still is-- a family favorite.
55 Knives is an eCookbook written by fifty-five blogger/authors who have contributed a favorite recipe--along with mouth watering photos-- and their personal story of the recipe’s origin and importance in their lives. The stories are on everything from food to family, and of course, the joy of just eating. Containing 174 pages in PDF form, one can instantly interact with the 55 bloggers through active links to each blog. Indexes are clickable, as well as searchable. Find what you’re looking for instantly!
Elle says, “I think these days, there’s plenty of room for hard copy cookbooks as well as eCookbooks. I adore my cookbook collection, and I’ll keep adding to it for years to come. But sometimes it’s nice to have the recipes right at your fingertips, and the information you need just a click away. Reaching the author almost instantly is a huge bonus! If the other bloggers involved are like me, and I suspect they are, they check emails regularly. Think of it this way—you’re at work or on the go, and you need a recipe for dinner tonight. But oh, that cookbook you like is at home. This one’s all in PDF form, and you could access it instantly, from your iPad or Smartphone. How convenient is that?
My favorite cookbooks, the ones I read cover to cover like novels—are the ones that include personal notes and stories from the author. I want to know how they were inspired, or where they got the recipes. Who made it for them the first time they tasted it? Was it mom or grandma? A dear friend? These things make a cookbook interesting, along with photos of each recipe. That’s where 55 Knives delivers. You get all that, and even more.”
