Cookbook Lovers...get some shelf space ready

Inspired by a generous donation from Gloria Herbert, who maintained an antique store in Montecito for years and collected over 1500 cookbooks, the Montecito Branch Public Library will be holding a fundraising Cookbook Extravaganza Sale on October 24, 2009 from 9:oo a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Come celebrate Epicure.sb and enjoy light refreshments while meandering through some delicious selections of cookbooks ready to be "adopted."

And, speaking of cookbooks, there are two new ones about cooking with Trader Joe's products hitting the shelves...
...The Trader Joe’s Companion: A Portable Cookbook, which is a response to the many comments the authors received from readers of the first book, saying they’d bring Cooking with All Things into the store with them. With its 9"-by-4" trim size, Companion can fit in a purse or back pocket. It is a “Flexibind” format and costs $13.95.

Also this fall, Ulysses Press is releasing The I Love Trader Joe’s Cookbook: 200 Delicious Recipes Using Only Foods from the World's Greatest Grocery Store, a $17.95 paperback, by Cherie Mercer Twohy. Ulysses executive v-p of operations Bryce Willett said he and his colleagues generated the book idea in-house after noticing the popularity of store-focused books. “People who go to Trader Joe’s just absolutely love it. They have such a devoted fan following.” - Publishers Weekly
Yeah...I'm a fan. I "heart" TJ's.
