Best-selling cookbook author (almost) giving away The Gourmet's Recession Cookbook

Does this dinner cost less than a small pizza with two toppings?

Past News Releases


Carol Guilford wanted to give her new book, (a slim volume, a luxury of self-publishing), away. Amazon policy requires a 99 cent minimum; THE GOURMET'S RECESSION COOKBOOK is available as an e-Book for $.99.

Carol is the author of THE NEW COOK'S COOKBOOK, chosen the year it was published as one of the top ten cookbooks of the year by "The New York Times."

THE DIET BOOK, reviewed by "Publisher's Weekly" as 'informative and fun', includes the complete 1856 version of the first diet book ever published. Both books have recently been updated into e-Books (see links below).

Updating of Guilford's two previous books, THE EASIEST COOKBOOK and THE MAIN COURSE COOKBOOK, are "next on the agenda." Carol said she would never write another cookbook, but the gods of comedy didn't listen. She even bought a slow-cooker.

Her criteria for choosing the recipes in the new book was, "Does this dinner cost less than a small pizza with two toppings?"

THE GOURMET'S RECESSION COOKBOOK has recipes for Shepherd's Pie, Fettuccine Alfredo, Garlic-Lemon Chicken, Homemade Pickles, Scampi, Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork and Slovakian Potato Soup.

Carol notes: "It is nice to keep in mind what Dr. Andrew Boorde wrote in 1542 -- 'A good cook is half a physician.' I hope readers will enjoy the food writing -- especially my story about being bitten by the teeth of a salmon head -- and 'The Armchair Chef', a compendium of best collectible cookbooks from 1900 to 1975."

For those without an e-Book reader, the books can be read on a PC or MAC by downloading Amazon's FREE "Kindle" reader for PC. "Kindle" is the trade name for Amazon's e-Book reader. (Link provided below.) You can also download FREE apps for your iPhone, Blackberry, iPad and Android cell phones.
