A cookbook can be a wonderful testament to your craft, documenting technique, providing inspiration, and reinforcing your business brand. And every once in a blue moon, it can make you some money. Two publishing veterans will outline the basic steps of cookbook publishing, from concept through proposal to the actual production of the book, offering realistic advice and sharing useful resources. They’ll leave plenty of time for specific questions, to accommodate the interests and experience of session attendees.
