FREE cookbooks


Recommended Posts

Craig & Pierre have found a new home. I wish that eBay was this easy! Maybe if I gave things away there? :laugh:

It is almost this easy, and the more I do it, the easier it gets! I especially like selling books on eBay because you can type in the title, author, or the ISBN, and you will automatically get a description of the book including a stock photo for your listing. Click here to see the book I have up for bid now, utilizing the automatic description plus a brief addition of my own. Of course free is good, but now you can buy or sell a cookbook on eBay, to benefit the eG Society. Take a look here. (You can buy or sell anything on eBay now, as a way to contribute.) ...End of shameless plug. :smile:

Life is short; eat the cheese course first.

i am in the process of minimizing and have some cookbooks that i can no longer use.  if anyone would like them, please pm me with your snail mail address and i will drop them in the box.  right now i have 4 available:

Lancaster County Cookbook

My Own Cook Book - Gladys Taber

Peter Hunt's Cape Cod Cookbook

The Luchow's Cookbook

I would rather send them to a good home with one of you than drop them in the local library book sale.

Hi. could i have the Lancaster county cookbook and the cape cod cookbooks, please?

Well, i was so successful in cleaning out my cookbook shelves last month, with the help of this thread, that i've decided to do a really deep purge :smile: here are a few books to start with, and i imagine i'll have a bunch more to add before the day is through. if you're interested in any of these, please PM me & we can exchange details.

yes, i'm a hoarder of cookbooks - can you tell? :wink:

i'm having SUCH a good time with this thread! - so here comes Purge #3 of my cookbook shelf :smile:

i just want to say first of all that a couple of these books are on the big & heavy side, so i feel like i have to ask for postage to be reimbursed - as a guideline, most of the books i send out (media mail) cost about $2.00, so these heavier ones will probably be closer to $4 or $5. i've marked the heavier books with ***, fyi.

ok, that said - here are the books i have to offer this time:

cakes, tortes & gateaux of the world - aaron maree ***

le cordon bleu techniques & recipes - fruit desserts

leafy greens - mark bittman

solo suppers - joyce goldstein

lettuce in your kitchen - chris schlesinger

big flavors of the hot sun - chris schlesinger ***

delicious desserts - good cooking ***

thanks! - kerry

What is "Big Flavors of the Hot Sun" about, Kerry? I'll ask this question online in case others want to know too.

i should mention that this book has probably been claimed already, but:

the book's cover-blurb says 'hot recipes & cool tips from the spice zone' - foods with big flavors (spicy hot, or strongly flavored), primarily from areas of the world where the weather is hot & the sun is bright :smile:

sample items: chicken chipotle quesadillas; grilled lamb chops with mint-chili glaze; cuban style yucca; orange-chili marmalade.
