This week: Club Masala and Diaspora Co. discount code, EYB features, cookbook previews and more

A member recently asked if there was a way to determine the percentage of recipes she had cooked from a book. While the member will have to do the actual math, there is a way to tabulate this information: utilizing your Bookmark functions, “I’ve cooked this” and a few easy steps. (Darcie briefly covered this feature and others in this post.)

First step, apply the “I’ve cooked this” Bookmark to each recipe in a cookbook (remember you can also add notes/reviews, ratings and photos of the recipe as well). The Chef Hat next to the recipe title will change color depending on which Bookmark you select: “I want to cook this” (orange) or “I’ve cooked this” (green).

One of my favorite cookbooks is The New Midwestern Table: 200 Heartland Recipes by Amy Thielen. To see how many recipes I have made from this title, I went to “My Bookshelf”, selected “Recipes” and typed in the title of the book. Using the filters on the right sidebar, I selected the “I’ve cooked this” filter. (See the photo below.)

As you can see, I’ve cooked 24 recipes from Amy’s book which has a total of 214 recipes. I’ve cooked 11 percent of the recipes in this book. For more information on Bookmarks see our Help section articles below:

Note: Amy’s new book Company: The Radically Casual Art of Cooking for Others is available for preorder and will be released in November.

Do you know about Club Masala? This club is a hands-on, spice-forward, quarterly Zoom cooking club which is a brainchild of the Diaspora Co. All customers who purchase a Masala Dabba (pictured below) instantly become lifetime members. If you do not need a new dabba and spend $200+ you will still get to join in on the fun for a year! For your friends and family, tickets are available for $15 per class with proceeds being donated to a cause Diaspora believes in.

We love Diaspora here at EYB. Not only are the spices incredible – the work being done by this company is spectacular. Find out more at their website. Diaspora is offering our EYB members 12% off any orders using the code: DiasporaEYB (expires on Mar 31st, 2022).
