Food Writers and Editor Launch New Site

9780767930727.jpgJust in time for Thanksgiving, a former book editor and a team of food writers have joined forces to build a new online library for amateur chef called Cookstr. Founded by Will Schwalbe, the former Editor-in-Chief of Hyperion Books, the new website takes a curated approach towards cooking.

From the release: “Cookstr is a chef-based recipe search that provides recipes from cookbooks written by over 200 of the top chefs and cookbook authors, such as Mario Batali, Jamie Oliver, Nigella Lawson, Alice Waters, Daniel Boulud, Eric Ripert, Daisy Martinez, powered by a sophisticated search engine.”

The foodie site features a different food writer or expert every day, and according to the NY Times, the business model “ultimately, is to sell copies of these authors’ books.” Today’s featured writer is Nava Atlas–who wrote the book Vegan Soups and Hearty Stews for All Seasons for Random House.
