When you think you have a good idea for a cookbook,
the first question to objectively ask is: Why would
someone want to buy this book? If you can't think of
anything - trendy, inspiring, completely new - you
need another concept. Publishers look for the next
big thing, and you have to convince them that you
will be big, or at least make them some money. For

One of the greatest compliments you can ever receive
is to hear from someone that they use your book on a
regular basis. It makes the writing of them so
worthwhile to think that you are in someone's home,
feeding and making them happy.
