#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 or theme from the ckbk website to cook from. Browse online and favorite recipes you’d like to make.
Cook whichever recipes sound appealing to you, take photos of your dishes, and post to the group along with any notes, comments, and cooking tips.
Invite your friends and anyone who loves to cook.
What is this month’s theme? July 2019
Calling all bakers—in celebration of summer's fruit and vegetable bounty #ckbkclub is tackling the theme of Summer Baking this July. We're inviting members to explore a range of sweet and savory cakes, pies and pastries from any book on ckbk. Here are a few books from our collection to get your started:
Back in the Day Bakery Made with Love by Cheryl and Griffith Day
Vegan Desserts by Hannah Kaminsky
The Messy Baker by Charmian Christie
Good to the Grain by Kim Boyce
Cheese Obsession by Georgeanne Brennan
Bread by Jeffrey Hamelman
The Floral Baker by Frances Bissell
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!
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!
June 2019: In the spirit of summer wanderlust, our team selected Around the World in 80 Dishes by award-winning photographer David Loftus for our June #ckbkclub book. He’s pulled together a collection of international recipes inspired by trips with his famous-food loving friends and clients. It’s a gorgeous travelogue that takes us on a route shadowing that of Jules Verne’s Around the World in 80 Days, intertwined with whimsical passages from that much-loved adventure.
May 2019: The Silver Palate Cookbook 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.
