We're one of the 50 best global food websites!

Today we'd like to take a time out and brag just a little. We're especially proud that The Times (London) has included EYB as one of the top 50 best global food websites. If you have a Times subscription, you can view the entire article here, but if you don't, we wanted to let you read the nice things they had to say about us:

"Sitting at work, planning to cook tonight, without access to your home cookbook shelf? This site has an index of more than 800,000 recipes from the most popular cookbooks. You tell it which books you own and it will provide a searchable index of all the recipes, providing the book titles and all the ingredients needed, but leaving you to look up the recipe in your own copy of the book."

It would have been nice if they had mentioned that we also do the same for over 60 blogs (growing all the time) and over 30 magazines (ditto) - 80,000 online recipes -  but we'll be more than happy to accept the kudos.

And since we're on the subject, If you'd like to see a complete list of our indexed blogs and magazines, check out this copy of our recent newsletter - they're all listed in the right-hand column. And remember - you don't have to add the whole site to your bookshelf; you can add individual recipes.

We promise we'll be back tomorrow with our usual content - in fact we'll pose a little question in advance. Do you know what "flexitarianism" is? Tune in and find out.

    Congratulations! You've absolutely transformed my cooking life over the past 3 plus years. I use my cookbooks so much more now and the opportunity to index my recipes from blogs and magazines and newspapers is a great added bonus!

    Eat Your Books is an intelligent project with an ambitions scope. Kudos! For a job well done. You deserve this recognition.--Lynne Olver, editor, The Food Timeline

    Brilliant - couldn't be better deserved. I can't sing the praises of this resource highly enough - but I try!

    Jane & Fiona - Sincere congratulations on this high honour. EYB is an invaluable resource for anyone who owns cookbooks and I am so grateful to have unprecedented access to the recipes in my (shhh...vast) cookbook collection! I hope you have a special celebration planned to truly savour the moment. I can't even begin to appreciate how much blood, sweat and tears must have gone into making this site a success and I'm delighted for both of you that you're getting this much-deserved recognition. Congratulations!
