EYB and ckbk livestream Q & A

Last May we announced that we have connected the EYB database to ckbk’s library of digital cookbooks. ckbk is a cookbook subscription site where you can access the full content of more than 800 great cookbooks, the majority of which are indexed here on EYB (and more will be indexed every week). For all the details, this earlier post.

On March 20th at 3 p.m. EST / 7 p.m. GMT – Matthew Cockerill of ckbk and myself will be hosting a livestream Q & A to answer any questions our members may have and to talk cookbooks. Jenny will be the moderator and you can also ask her questions on anything about cookbooks. Register now to reserve your place. If you would like to share questions in advance, you can send them by email to info@eatyourbooks.com. I know the timing of this isn’t great for our members in other time zones but the livestream will be recorded and we will add a link after the event.

Matthew Cockerill is a sourdough-fermenting, backyard-wasabi-growing culinary adventurer, Matt began his career as a science publisher. As co-founder of open access publishing pioneer BioMed Central, he helped to bring the 350-year old science publishing industry into the digital age. Next up, cookbooks! He is based in London, and when he is not working, cooking or drinking coffee, he likes to burn off the excess calories with marathons and endurance swimming.

Jane Kelly, co-founder of Eat Your Books, was frustrated by how long it took to find a recipe in her own vast cookbook collection, so she came up with the idea for EYB as an easy solution to find recipes and utilize more of the books on her shelf. With a lifelong interest in cookbooks and cooking at home, Jane launched her first company in the late 90s – an online business selling cookbooks. 

Jane started her career in the music and TV industry in the UK, working for the independent record label Stiff Records, starting the first music TV station in Europe, and running one of the Virgin Group companies. She currently lives near Boston, Massachusetts and has two adult children, both living in New York City. When she’s not cooking or working, you can find her playing pickleball, crafting cocktails for friends, or watching movies.
