Have You Written The Best Cook Book Ever?
Posted on 02/01/2013 Evan Swensen
In the 34 years we’ve been book publishing, we’ve published only three cook books total, with two in our active catalog. Most publishers attract cook books of all kinds, so we’re not sure why we haven’t been approached with more cook book manuscripts. We know they’re out there somewhere!
So if you have written the best cook book ever, kindly keep us in mind. We’d be happy to look at the manuscript. And feel free to send along some cookies or brownies so we can taste-test.
You Put What in my Dessert? by Alicia Loveland
After judging a World Federation of Competitive Eaters cabbage-eating contest in Palmer, Alaska a few years ago, Alicia decided You Put What In My Dessert? needed to be written. She felt sorry for contestants eating plates of plain, boiled cabbage. “I wish I could have spiced it up for them with a little caraway seed, dill, mint, mustard seed, savory, or tarragon. And topped it off with a piece of Cabbage Hooch Cake.”
Cabbage is a cancer inhibitor, loaded with vitamin C, only 11 calories per serving, and can enhance almost any recipe. It can be fried, boiled, baked, frozen, canned, or dried, and then ground in a food mill and used to thicken soup. Making sauerkraut is an added bonus because it is ready to use. More than 2,000 years ago laborers building the Great Wall of China pickled cabbage in wine to supplement their diet. Genghis Khan took it back to fortify his Tartars as they plundered their way through Europe. Captain Cook carried sauerkraut on his ships to ward off scurvy. But you don’t have to plunder Europe to enjoy the many faces of cabbage. Just enjoy reading this cook book and history of the homely cabbage. And give the Cabbage Hooch Cake recipe a try.
