The Austin Food Blogger Alliance Cookbook is out!
Published by The History Press, this cookbook is a collaborative effort by the entire membership of AFBA and a lot of volunteer hours. We’re pretty proud of how beautiful it turned out, and I definitely don’t mind seeing my limpa photo featured across from the introduction! Recipes are the main focus of course, but we also included essays on preserving, cocktails, coffee, and more. It’s a great representation of our community and the food we eat beyond tacos and margaritas (though we’ve got recipes for those, too).
I personally tested three recipes for this book (one didn’t make the cut) and tasted many others at the “recipe testing” potluck we held back in September. I also led the copyediting team, making sure the recipes made sense and had a consistent format. It was a lot of work, but a wonderful experience to have under my belt.
If you’re in the Austin area, you can pick up a copy at BookPeople and other area stores. In fact, this Saturday, May 11 at 4 p.m., I’ll be speaking on a panel with fellow AFBA members Kathryn Hutchison, Addie Broyles, Natanya Anderson, Melissa Skorpil, and Chris Perez, chatting about our book and the local blogging community. Stop on by!
The book is also available on Amazon. Proceeds from the book will be going toward furthering AFBA’s goals of community growth. (AFBA is a 501(c)7 nonprofit organization.)
Of course, you could always win a copy! I’m giving one away to a lucky reader in the US or Canada!
