In 2013, I teamed up with Corrine Kozlak, a Chicago area food stylist, to discuss ideas about making a cookbook. We explored different potential subjects and agreed on rhubarb as the main ingredient. The process involved months of preparation including creating concepts, developing recipes, taste testing, shooting the products in studio, amongst other ventures. Eventually, we finalized 25 timeless, and tasty recipes that we were excited about. By the end of 2013, we put our stamp on the rhubarb cookbook, not expecting that our little project would go beyond just being "our little project".
About the Book Rhubarb –Plant, Eat, Love, and Enjoy a beautiful Photo / Cookbook . This cook book contains Rhubarb recipes that have been developed, tested, tasted and photographed to entice you to cook and bake with Rhubarb. It also contains a fabulous pie crust recipe with an interesting technique that will most surely make you a successful pie crust maker. We hope you enjoy our efforts to create this little but beautiful self-published cook book.
Late 2017, Corrine was contacted by Adventure KEEN Publications, out of Cambridge Minnesota. They were interested in replacing their long standing rhubarb cookbook. After several weeks of negotiating a contract, we combined resources with the publication, and started the process of creating another cookbook with 25 new recipes in addition to our original 25. We are currently in the final stages of this project, and the book is scheduled to be on shelves in the Spring of 2019.
