Cookbook Launch Day

Recipes - Cookbook Launch Day

Date When Celebrated : This holiday is always celebrated on October 12

Cookbook Launch Day is a little known day designed to launch a new cookbook. Schools, churches, clubs and a wide range of organizations ask members to donate a recipe for creating of their own cookbook. Working with a publisher, they put a neat cookbook together filled with cherished recipes, and publish it for members and friends. It is often used as a fund raiser.


Traditionally, cookbooks were either printed by a printing company, or made on a copier and then put together in a binder of some kind. Nowadays, it's even easier to create and publish a new cookbook. Online Cookbooks abound, and contain virtually any recipe that you are looking for. You can read the recipe from your smartphone as you prepare it. Or, print out a single page with the specific recipe you want.

Creating and launching a new cookbook is an exciting event. There's always a few new recipes to discover. And, it encourages us to try new foods on family and friends. Cooks will tell you that you can't have too many cookbooks.

If you've never been a part of launching a new cookbook, use today to get the idea started in your local group. We also suggest that you use today as a good excuse to buy a new cookbook. While you're at it, buy an extra one for a friend!
