After a lot of planning, EatYourBooks.com is finally live.
The idea for the website grew from a desire I had to make better
use of my large collection of cookbooks. I wanted to find new
recipes quickly and to be able to search by several criteria such
as main ingredients, ethnicity, type of dish, occasions, etc.
I also wanted to find recipes when I couldn't remember which book
they were in. I reasoned that I was probably not the only
keen cook out there with a shortage of time and a fading
memory. I convinced my sister Fiona to join me in the
enterprise and Eat Your Books was born.
We've designed the site as we would like to use it but we would
love to hear from you as to what you think works or doesn't and
what new features you would like to add. The 550 cookbooks we
have indexed so far represent what we think keen cooks are most
likely to own but we will be adding new books all the time based on
your requests. So if you don't find one of your favorites,
please send us a request and we will probably add it to our
Get in touch and give us feedback. I've regularly been
using EatYourBooks.com for finding recipes while the site has been
in development and it does everything I hoped it would. But
you may have different needs so please tell us and we'll do our
best to make you as happy with the website as we are.
