Bay Area Bloggers of the Week # 48, 49 & 50

Local Bloggers have helped create Cookbooks:

This week I noticed that not one, or two but three local bloggers have been heavily involved in the creation of new cookbooks.

Writer/Editor, Jennifer Jeffrey, explains, in two parts, her collaboration with blogger/chef Andrea Froncillo to create The Stinking Rose Restaurant Cook Book.

Meanwhile, Mrs B, from Eating Suburbia is off on a two week vacation that is stopping her from holding a copy of the very book she has been working on for five years in her hands. The printing was delayed for a couple of days which led to her not being at home when the first copies of The World is a Kitchen arrived. Several food bloggers have been instrumental in helping Mrs B test her recipes and as such I predict this book will make quite an impact in the food blogging world.

Good luck ladies & gent, I wish you all many cookbook sales. Perhaps some of my readers could pop over, say hello and wish them luck too...

Come Surf with me:
Once More Into the Peach (over 2 dozen peachy ideas)
Hometown Destinations (local farmers markets)

Next in Line for my Bay Area Blog Roll:
Married With Dinner
Cook Here and Now
Sex and the Kitchen
Corndog & Rootbeer
Bella Rossa

Archive Alert! On this day in 2005: Fred 62 in Loz Feliz, LA.

    Very cool to hear that they are now published Sam! When is the "Becks and Posh Cookbook" coming out? I'll be first in line to buy and copy and get my book signed!

    As if it wasn't great enough to come home from vacation today to see my book, but then to try and catch up on some of my favorite blogs and find that you had posted about little old me! thank you so very much. I couldn't be more pleased with the book. I have it standing up in front of me and I just keep staring at it. Next week I will get on the ball and get copies out, as well as thank yous, and then the post-publishing marketing campaign will begin. Well, actually it has begun here, which is quite an honor!

    Sam! What a surprise this morning to see that people have actually visited my blog... and that you sent them there! Thank you so much for the kind words! :-) Where shall I send your cookbook?

    Thanks for posting that Sam. The World is a Kitchen book looks really great, and I hadn't heard about it.

    I think it's great that you are so supportive of other foodbloggers Sam. And it's so impressive that there are so many Bay Area bloggers too!

    I've tagged you for this meme on The Foodbloggers' Guide to the Globe if and when you have time. Hope you can join. I'd love to see your recommendations.

    oops - i didnt realise i hadnt answered all these comments from over a week ago, sorry!

    mum - i will see what I can do
    you'll have to start blog reading in earnest

    passionate eater - yay! I dont think I am going to publish a cook book. Maybe you can make do with my blog - it wont cost you anything..?

    Anita - my pleasure, I am looking forward to reading more about what being 'married, with dinner' is all about since I don't have any experience of such things.

    Mrs b - from the outside it looks abslutely gorgeous. I am so excited for you. I can't wait to get my eyes on the innards.

    jennifer. aha - i am really crap at accepting free gifts, so you'll have to force it upon me using what ever technique you think viable.

    julie - i am beginning to think i am the only blogger who does NOT have a book deal right now!

    helen - thanks for the tag, I am going to get onto it now the site template has been all but finished. you were actually the second person to tag me, but the more the merrrier in my book.

    I havent read any blogs in a wwek so my answers will be without the influence of those who have been before me.

    I think i might do it tomorrow some time.

    thanks for thinking of me
