Eat Tweet - 1020 Recipe Gems from @cookbook

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The New York Times called tweeted recipes quite possibly the “first great recipe innovation in 200 years”—then crowned Maureen Evans, aka @cookbook, the queen of the genre. This talented home cook and poet has a knack for boiling down recipes to their essence: every single step and ingredient is condensed to Twitter’s maximum of 140 characters or fewer, and not a single keystroke more. Eat Tweet—the first ever Twitter book of recipes—is like a shorthand sous-chef. Part of the fun lies in decoding the author’s clever recipe tweets, each one a model of clarity and usefulness. But this one-stop compendium of curated recipes and food ideas is so much more. There are recipes from around the world, from Kashgar noodles to Biscotti, as well as homey favorites like Garlic Chicken and Chocolate Ice Cream. It’s like a shelf of cookbooks in one tasty volume. Come, listen, chat and chew!
