Food52 Ask Me Anything; recipes, EYBD Previews and more

Last week, our friends at Food52 asked Jane and I to participate in an Ask Me Anything hour in the Food52 Cookbook Club on Facebook. There were some great questions and I thought Members here might like to scroll through that post.

Jane provided some helpful tips on using Eat Your Books and I shared a few of my favorite cookbooks as well as those titles that I am looking forward to this year. Just a reminder our post with tips and ideas to make EYB work better for you can be found on our home page and at this link. I keep that post updated with links to new features as they are added to our site.

Also of interest, the Food52 Baking Club, did an Ask Me Anything with Rose Levy Beranbaum this week and you can see the questions/answers on this post. A reminder: The Cake Bible, 35th Anniversary Edition will be published in October of this year!

As a reminder, before manually entering cookbooks please remember to search the title of the Book to make sure it isn’t already in our Library. If you have an ISBN – the thirteen digit identification number found usually on the back of the book (see above photo) or on the copyright page – always use our automated importing feature. For more information, please see this Help section. Books are typically imported within 24 hours. For an older title, with no ISBN, first search the Library and if the book isn’t found, follow the instructions in our post to manually import the book data.
