Focus on Electronic Information No. 97-06

Date:  June 1997

Subject:  Cookbooks, Cooking Magazines, and Related Culinary
Information on the Internet

Cookbooks are among the most popular items of printed material.
They range from large hardcover tomes covering every type of food
to pamphlets published by community organizations, trade
associations, and appliance manufacturers.  While there are few,
if any, of the comprehensive, bestseller type of cookbook on the
Internet, there is an enormous variety of culinary information
available, and much of it can be found in some rather unlikely
places such as the web sites of television cooking shows, recipe
contests, and embassies of foreign nations.  The following list
represents a sampling of the type of material available.

_Cookbooks_

These online cookbooks are arranged like traditional printed
cookbooks and often have a table of contents and an index for
easy access.
