Introducing #ckbkclub!

#ckbkclub: the club for everyone who ❤️s cookbooks and cooking

We love books, particularly cookbooks, so today, on World Book Day, we're announcing the launch of #ckbkclub! It's a group for cookbook fanatics and enthusiastic home cooks (like you!) to come together and cook from a rotating selection of cookbooks.

How does #ckbkclub work?

  • Every month we'll select one book from the ckbk website to cook from. Read the book online and favorite recipes you’d like to make.

  • Cook whichever recipes from the book sound appealing to you, take photos of your dishes, and post to the group along with any notes, comments, and cooking tips.

  • Post to the #ckbkclub Facebook group or if you prefer post to Instagram or Twitter using hashtag #ckbkclub and tag us @ckbk, we'll re-share your posts.

  • Invite your friends and anyone who loves to cook.

What is this month’s book?

By popular vote The Silver Palate Cookbook  has been selected as our May 2019 #ckbkclub book. It’s sold over 2.5 million copies worldwide and holds a treasured place for many in the United States. Published in 1982 with recipes from their famous NYC gourmet deli, The Silver Palate, Sheila Lukins and Julee Rosso brought international flavors to home cooks and spawned a gourmet renaissance of unfamiliar ingredients and flavors from Provence, the Mediterranean, and Asia.

Do I need a subscription to ckbk to participate?

Books will be selected from our extensive collection of curated cookbooks—that means you’ll won’t have to purchase new books or chase down classic editions. But, if you'd like to buy the book or already have it in your collection we welcome you to join!

What should I post?

Post photos of dishes you’ve made along with notes, tips, or adjustments you’ve made.

Ask questions to the group or share tips about books, authors, or recipes.

Share photos of your cookbook collection, we’d love to see it!

Community guidelines:

Be respectful and supportive, we’re all here because we love cooking and want to become better cooks. Please refrain from any self-promotions or advertisements.

We hope you’ll join us and help us kick off our first month of #ckbkclub!
