I’ve decided that I’m going to write a cookbook. Not something that will be released worldwide or anything like that… Just something that I can publish using one of the online publishing platforms and then give to friends as gifts and/or sell for $20 or something.
One of my friends gave me the idea… She and another friend own a wine bar/shop here, and she said offhandedly one day, “Jenna, you should write a cookbook so that we can sell it here in the shop.” And I laughed it off… And then thought, hmm… There might be something to that.
I’m thinking of setting it up in seasons rather than courses…
Of course, now I’ve got to create some original recipes. I’ve only got like 5 or 6 off the top of my head that I could say are truly my creations. I’m thinking of a flexitarian cookbook, with mainly vegetarian meals that can easily be made with meat. Oooo… Maybe I can recruit some of my restaurant friends as contributors and make it “A Taste of Paso” cookbook or something.
Perhaps this will be something that fizzles out in a week or so, but at this very moment, I’m setting one of my 2008 resolutions as: Finish A Cookbook. As a matter of fact, I’m also adding it to my To Do List up at the top of this site.
Anyone interested in a pre-order? 😉
