Inside cookbook stores

As we hope you have noticed, we have started a series of profiles of independent cookbook stores around the world - so far we have featured Omnivore Books in San Francisco and Books for Cooks in Melbourne. And we have our permanent list of cookbook stores around the world - if you have a favorite store you would like us to add, please let us know.

We are pleased to announce another feature with our favorite cookbook stores - each month they will give us feedback on what is happening in their store.  This will be a great way to find out about new cookbooks and also what events may be happening if you live in that area.
