55 Knives, the Book I co-authored, is now available!

May 27, 2010

Remember I told you that I’m working on a chapter for an e-book a while ago? Well, that book, titled 55 Knives, is now complete! Nick Evans of Macheesmo has done a fab job putting together the book of 55 chapters by food bloggers together (thank you, Nick!)

55 knives

What do you get in this book?

  • 55 delicious recipes
  • 55 wonderful short-stories
  • 174 pages of content from the top food bloggers from all over the world
  • Simple ways to reach out to all the authors
  • 3 free coupons for some fantastic cooking products.
  • 30 day warranty for a full refund

To learn more or to buy your copy, simply visit the 55 Knives page and shop online.

Here’s a little snippet of my contribution to the book:

…As I grew up, I began eating out and experiencing a variety of powerful new flavours. I have to say though, not all flavours made my taste-buds dance and sing. The first time I ate blue cheese at a chic restaurant, I couldn’t hold it in my mouth beyond three seconds, and spat it out right into the napkin. I’d like to think it was discreet, but five friends around me disagreed…

You can also read my recipe for Stuffed Eggplants on Page 71 of the book.

What’s great about the book is the fact that these are special recipes and touching stories that are filled with meaning and tradition. These are overflowing with so much love and beauty that will make you laugh out with delight and cry with happiness.

What’s also great is that this is an e-book, one that you can download instantly and read on your computer, iPhone, laptop, iPad, or any other device you use. An e-book is a great idea for such a book. It comes with live links that can take you to pages within the book and to blogs on the internet. You can directly subscribe to other food blogs or follow them easily on Twitter or Facebook. You can also search for ingredients and recipes using the book. No shipping charges, no delivery time, no trees being cut – just a click and the book is yours instantly and forever.

Early bird catches the worm: The book will be sold at a discounted price of $14 (as opposed to $19) until Thursday, June 3rd 2010. So hurry up and grab your copy now. And in case you’re not satisfied, Nick will graciously return your money within 30 days of purchase.

I just got my copy of the book and I’m so exited to read more about some of my favorite bloggers and discover some new ones. I’ve already put Pinch My Salt’s Potato and Leek recipe on my to-do list.

Full disclosure: As a co-author for the book, I receive a small commission from Nick on books sold through The Purple Foodie. So if you’d like to help me out, do buy the book from here!
