The Roger Smith Cook Book Conference

The Roger Smith Cook Book Conference

Thursday, Feb 07, 2013 - Saturday, Feb 09, 2013

Join us in New York this February for the second annual Roger Smith Cookbook Conference. We're participating along with cookbook authors, publishers, editors, agents, researchers and scholars. On Thursday, Don joins Marvin Taylor, T. Susan Chang, Andy Smith, Laura Shapiro, Jonathan Milder and Jane Greenway Carr for a workshop on research methods with cookbooks. And on Friday, Don is participating in a panel on children's cookbooks along with Laura Shapiro, Mollie Katzen, and Rozanne Gold.


The Roger Smith Cookbook Conference is coming February 7, 8 and 9th 2013 to The Roger Smith Hotel in New York City. The conference is an eclectic gathering of those who publish, write, edit, agent, research, or simply buy and use cookbooks.

On Thursday, 5 workshops explore issues in researching, reading and publishing cookbooks: Introduction to Cookbook Publishing, Reading Cookbooks: A Structured Approach and Structured Dialogue with Barbara Ketcham Wheaton, The Wild World of Self-Publishing, The Way to Look: How to Do Research with Cookbooks, and Cookbook Publishing 360. (There is a separate registration fee for the workshops. Pre-registration is a must; no walk-ins.)

Friday and Saturday are the core of the conference program with 32 panels. On each day, concurrent sessions will take place on a broad and stimulating range of topics, from manuscript cookery books and class and politics in cookbooks, to cookbooks in the digital age and the culinary app.

Join 103 writers, publishers, editors, agents and academics in New York in February. Explore the exciting list of participants and read their bios at:
