breaking news :: second cookbook in the works!


I interrupt my regularly scheduled Paris blog posts to deliver some breaking news. My second cookbook deal is official, via Globe Pequot Press/Fork, the folks who published my first cookbook, The Urban Vegan! The new book, which will contain at least 200 new recipes. will be printed in late 2011 or early 2012. More on the title and content later.

Help! Need Recipe Testers ASAP!
My manuscript deadline is March 31, 2011 [Crazy, huh?]. I need about 30 recipe testers to help me out pronto. I would like a random sampling: men, women, vegans, vegetarians, non-vegans, experienced cooks, and newbies. Every tester who tests 25 recipes will get a free, signed cookbook once it's published. And every tester who tests at least 5 recipes will get a tout in the cookbook. Only requirements: you must have an established blog, a Flickr account and agree to post about recipes/photos you tested regularly. Interested? Please email me at theurbanvegan@yahoo.com and tell me why you would make a fabulous tester. Also include your blog address. If you're in, you'll hear from me.

Thank you in advance for your interest!I apologize in advance if I don't answer your email personally. Last time, I got such an overwhelming response to my request for testers, that answering every email  was impossible.

And now back to our regularly scheduled blog posts...

Aww. I'd love to participate, but my food blog only features recipes from ethnic cuisines (I know your book probably does too, as I have your first book) and I always post the actual recipe, so I don't think I qualify. :-/

Don't know if you are still looking for testers but I would love to help! I love your first book and have tested for two other cookbooks before and love the whole process!!
