Eat Your Books: Internet Search

If you are serious about cooking, chances are you have more then a bookshelf of cookbooks –- far too many to remember exactly which one had that great recipe for artichoke or rabbit. Chances are you’ll spend more time looking for the recipes than actually cooking it.

You could turn to recipe sites on the Internet like or, but you won’t find recipes from most of those cherished books online — until now.

Eat Your Books at will do just that. Go online to the website and create a personal online library of all your books -– from Escoffier to Rachael Ray to Daniel Boulud. You can even search for recipes in the very similarly named Tyler Florence book, Eat This Book. Once you’ve done that, you’re ready to access all the recipes in those books online.

Say you’ve come home with a load from the Green Market – it is easy enough to search for a recipe for peaches or grapes or pasta with rabbit. Eatyourbooks can also search magazines, websites, and blogs (like Super Chef) so you don’t have search every table of contents or index. It’s like having your own librarian.

You can search by major ingredients, ethnicity, recipe type, nutrition, special occasion, and meal course. Once has found that perfect recipe – you can turn to the correct book on your bookshelf and enjoy making it!
