Preorder Cookbook Perks: Spring 2021

Earlier this month, I shared some highlights of the cookbooks being released this Spring. I noticed a few cookbook perks that you may want to jump on. I will be updating this post as I learn of more offers. As always, please email me at if you have information about a cookbook preorder perk, author event or something cookbook related.

    A quick look at the Hardcover Cook site does say that they can now ship books to Canada and are currently working on the licensing required for shipping food items across the border – which is great news 🙂
