5,000 cookbooks and counting

5000 cookbooks

Drum roll, please: we are thrilled to announce that we have indexed book number 5,000 in the EYB Library! So which book is lucky number 5,000? It’s Monday Morning Cooking Club: The Feast Goes On, an Australian book that Yotam Ottolenghi calls “a remarkable excursion into the realm of comfort food.”

The Feast Goes OnEYB indexers have been diligently working to reach this milestone, so thanks goes to them for their dedication to the task. They have received assistance from members who have indexed their favorite cookbooks, so thank you to everyone who has volunteered to do that. Remember, if you have a book on your Bookshelf that you can’t wait to see indexed, you can request that EYB do the indexing or that you do it yourself.

This milestone follows on the heels of surpassing 1,000,000 indexed recipes earlier this year. We are not stopping to rest on our laurels, however. We’ve added two new magazines this month, Sweet Paul Magazine and Kinfolk. Plus we are in the process of indexing over 400 more volumes. The odds just keep getting better that the cookbook you’ve been thinking of buying will be indexed on EYB – so go ahead, buy it! And if you click on the Buy Book link from EYB, we get a small affiliate fee from the retailer, so we have more money to spend indexing more books – a win-win!
