Twitter Cookbook

Get recipes no more than 140 characters long at Cookbook on Twitter or at your local bookstore.  Eat Tweet: 1,020 Recipe Gems from the Twitter Community's @cookbook by Maureen Evans is pretty impressive for the first twitter cookbook ever.

Here's a recent recipe she tweeted:

" Marcella Hazan’s Roast Chicken with Lemons: Bruise,stab2whl lem. Stuff in~4lb whlchicken,tie shut,s+p. h@350℉(turn1x); +20m breastup@400℉."

 "The New York Times called tweeted recipes quite possibly the "first great recipe innovation in 200 years"—then crowned microblogger Maureen Evans the queen of the genre", writes Amazon.  "This talented home cook has a knack for boiling down recipes to their essence: every single step and ingredient is condensed to Twitter's maximum of 140 characters or fewer, and not a single keystroke more. Eat Tweet—the first ever Twitter book of recipes—is like a shorthand sous-chef. Part of the fun lies in decoding the author's clever recipe tweets, each one a model of clarity and usefulness. But this one-stop compendium of curated recipes and food ideas is so much more. There are recipes from around the world, from Kashgar Noodles to Biscotti, as well as homey favorites like Garlic Chicken and Chocolate. In addition, Eat Tweet contains kitchen tips and techniques (also 140 characters max) and a lexicon for translating Twitterese cooking terms like s+p (salt and pepper) and tst (toasted). From Lemon Lentil Soup to Pumpkin Pie, it's like a shelf of cookbooks in one tasty volume."

Thanks Janet for this fabulous gift!
