starting a cook book

 Im thinking about writing a small cheap cook book/ tips on healthy diet/lifestyle...no pan fried stuff etc.  I might even aim it at students, cos Ive had to eat healthy on a budget these last couple of years.  

Its not so much for the money side but mainly cos I want to get into health promotion and I think it would be quite a good thing to have on my cv (and it might be quite fun to do).

I know its been done before so it wont be anything new.  The prob is I dont have have a clue how to get anything published, lol.

Anyone know?  Or a good website I could find out more

Re: starting a cook book

We had a village cook book printed a few years ago - people in the village gave their favourite recipes - and then a local printer did a job lot very cheaply for us, as the proceeds of the book were going to a local charity.

Try looking in your phone book for a small scale publisher or printer and ask them what they think and what the cost would be, it sounds interesting anyway.

Btw, in my daughters 1st year at uni when she was in halls, in a corridor of 9 students all sharing one kitchen she was the only one who cooked, lol.

Good luck with it, anyway.

 Ill do that, thanks.

I know, young people just dont know or are willing to cook..shame really.  It doesnt have to be at students, everyone is on a budget these days.  Its really just to encourage people to eat healthy and provide education on nutrition and on adopting a healthier lifestyle.

I think there websites which help you to self publish, I think amazon or something also do it, try a search engine.

I'm one of those people, sorry. I think it's 'cos I find eating a bit of a chore, I lived off marmalade on toast and packet pasta at Uni.. I also seemed to end up doing all the washing up so tried to use minimal pots/ pans/ etc. Put in some quick recipes for people on the go and they might tempt a few people.
