You know what the blog-o-sphere needs more of? It needs more cookbook reviews written by REAL PEOPLE- like you all!
While researching whether I should buy a new cookbook online, I found myself amazed at the pile-up of recycled reviews straight from the publishers. Mmmm of course they're going to make everything sound like it should be bought!
I want to hear from my fellow foodies on their blogs about their recent cookbook purchases. And for those of you posting your reviews- keep it up! It'll take some punch to get up there on the google rankings, but I'll be digging through the returns for you.
btw, some great details to include when writing a cookbook review:
- roughly what percentage of recipes are accompanied by photos?
- how many recipes did you try out?
- and the most important, but most forgotten detail: what do you think of the cookbook? Nevermind for a moment the restaurant pedigree of the author... how does this book sit with you? Did it keep your interest for a day? A week? Two weeks?
