The last two weeks: Kitchen Arts & Letters clean out sale, Bonnie Slotnick used books, recipes, previews and more

If you are in Manhattan from April 23rd through the 28th, Kitchen Arts & Letters is having a “clean out sale“. Due to recent donations of books from some of NYC’s leading chefs and culinary publishing professionals, their bookstore is overflowing with used books. They will combine these donated books with their own assortment of damaged and shelfworn stock to offer an amazing array of books, heavily marked down.

50% of all proceeds from Clean Out book sales, and 100% of all early admission sales (tickets for early admission on the 23rd are already sold out, but the sale will be opened to the public after 11 a.m. on that date) will be donated to Edible Schoolyard NYC in support of their mission to “cultivate healthy students and communities through hands-on cooking and gardening education, transforming children’s relationship with food.” Click here to learn more.

Another New York icon, Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks, frequently obtains lots of used cookbook titles and posts photographs of these glorious treasures on her social media pages: Instagram and Facebook. Bonnie will ship books and is always happy to search for missing titles from your wish lists. Be sure to email her at or call 212-989-8962 if a title on one of her social media posts catches your eye. (Leaving a comment on those posts about “wanting” a book is not the best method.)

Be sure to check out and support your local book stores around the world. We have a listing here and if you know of a store that we have missed, please let us know. Our calendar also shares bookstore events and often if an author is going to be making an instore visit these sellers will put aside a signed book for you and ship it to you. Recently, I noticed that a Scotish author was going to be visiting Omnivore Books, so I emailed Celia and ordered a signed copy of his title. I am always happy to support our brick and mortar bookstores and would probably never get the opportunity to purchase a signed copy of The Hebridean Baker‘s book otherwise.
