Cookbook Preview & Pre-orders!

Once Upon a Chef Cookbook - Coming April 3 - Pre-order now!

Guys, my heart is full. After two-plus years of recipe testing, manuscript writing, photo shoots, proofreading, and endless dishwashing, I’m beyond thrilled to finally share the cover design of Once Upon a Chef, The Cookbook: 100 Tested, Perfected and Family-Approved Recipes with you. Developing the cover was a long process (more about it later, but let’s just say it involved a re-shoot and more than a few glasses of wine). But I’m over the moon with the final result. I hope you love it as much as I do. 

The other exciting news is that…drumroll, please…the book is officially available for pre-order from the following retailers:

US
Amazon   |   Barnes & Noble   |   Chronicle Books    |    IndieBound

UK
Amazon

Canada
Amazon    |    Indigo

Australia &  New Zealand
Booktopia

If you pre-order the book, it will ship April 3, 2018. I know that’s a ways off — and, to be honest, before writing my own book, I never saw much point to pre-ordering anything. But I’ve since learned that pre-ordering is the best thing you can do to support an author, and that pre-orders can literally make or break the success of a book. Here’s why:

  • When you pre-order a book, the sale counts towards the first week’s sales, which typically determine whether a book winds up on the New York Times bestseller list — a possibility that can be huge for any author, especially in terms of writing another book or building her career. (A gal can dream, right?)
  • A large number of pre-orders can prompt online vendors, like Amazon, to order more copies of the book before it’s released. Brick and mortar booksellers usually follow suit, and when these booksellers get excited about a book and order lots of copies, they’re more likely to promote it to their customers, placing it in visible locations on the shelves.
  • On the production side, if a publisher sees that a book has a lot of pre-orders, they’re likely to increase the print run to meet the anticipated demand. If they increase the print run, they typically increase their marketing efforts to sell all the copies. More marketing = more sales. So as you can see, it’s a snowball effect!

Sooo, if you’re planning to purchase the book, I’d be so incredibly grateful if you could hop on over to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, IndieBound, or Chronicle Books and pre-order.

Thank you all for your support. This book has been a labor of love, and I can’t wait to share it with you!

  • Hi Jenn:
    I am enjoying all of your recipes, and just pre-ordered your cookbook. I can’t wait till it comes!! I truly love your Challah French Toast recipe, and your plank Salmon. My husband and teenage son call me the “Queen of the Kitchen” for sure. I am a great cook, now I’m even better. Thank you! By the Way, any good recipes for Linguine and Fresh Clam Sauce? God Bless! Fran

    Pre-ordered for the whole family before Christmas! Can’t wait for the cookbook! You are so deserving of this book. I was so happy to be one of your testers, my family and I had so much fun with that! We have tested/made so many of your recipes and have loved them all! Also, can’t wait for your signing schedule to come out, planning our annual girls trip around it! Keep those recipes coming! Belinda Hunter

    My family and I have enjoyed your delicious recipes: from the smoked salmon dip to the quiches to the French apple cake, just to mention a few. I especially appreciate the nutritional chart at the end of each recipe. It’s a great help with the dietary needs of my family. Thank you for all the wonderful recipes.

    Today I pre-ordered your book and can’t wait to receive it. Congratulations on your first book.

So much easier to make when you can see what it is suppose to look like. Ordering two copies of the Cookbook, one as a promised Christmas gift, the other for me. Congratulations! I hope it becomes a Best Seller!!

  • I was preordering your cookbook through Amazon (Canadian) and it said your order qualifies for “free shipping”. However, when I proceeded to put the order through, they were charging me for shipping and handling. Do you know why?

    - Donna on January 20, 2018 Reply
    • Hi Donna, I’m not sure but I will ask my publisher about this first thing Monday and get back to you. Thanks so much for bringing this to my attention.

      - Jenn on January 20, 2018 Reply
    • Donna, Don’t know if this is the problem, but even if you qualify for free shipping on Amazon, they always default to a paid, slightly faster shipping. Just look at the shipping when it comes up and click in the circle for free shipping. Hope it helps…

  • As a Once Upon a Chef groupie for many years I ordered the book the minute it was available for purchase! Do you have plans do any book signings? If so, do you have a schedule available?

    - Kitty Connor on January 19, 2018 Reply
    • Hi Kitty, Thank you so much for supporting me! We are still working on the book signing schedule and I’ll post it as soon as I have it. But if you’re in the DC area, I know for sure that there will be a signing at Politics & Prose on Sunday April 8th at 5PM.

Last time I was leaving the party I had to promise to send a recipe to everyone who tried the salad based on your recipe.

Your recipe was such a success, it was absolutely delicious! Now I am thinking of purchasing your cookbook because each recipie that popped up from your webpage sounded delicious. Will any other Amazon outlets distribute, e.g., France or Germany, I live in Switzerland.

  • Congratulations Jen!! I’m a huge fan! Your blog is my “go to” place for recipes! I have made so many of your recipes that when my friends/family ask me where I got the recipe I reply, “from my friend Jen” and they know exactly what I’m referring to! I can’t wait to get my hands on your cookbook! I will definitely be pre-ordering. Will you do be doing book signings? I would love to meet you in person! 🙂 Best of luck with your Cookbook!

  • Of course I’m going to pre order your cookbook! Your recipes are always spot on amazing. When I’m cooking and I say “my girl” as if you and I are friends – they know who I’m referring to.
    If you are ever in Northern California – you have a friend to look up and eat with and a guest room too if needed. Thank you Jenn, from the bottom of my stomach.

  • Fantastic – well done you. Really looking forward to it – I hope Amazon UK stocks it, if not I’ll be happy to pay the shipping! I use few US sites, as often we just can’t get hold of so many of the ingredients here (Turkey), but I love your site and I use it often. We love your pesto shrimp – they are our number one dinner at the mo.

Every recipe I have made requires no adjustments and your directions are pure perfection. I have told some many people about your website. When friends/family ooh & aah about my entrees/desserts, I happily confess where I got the recipe from. Thank you so much!

  • It’s that “Family approved” header that, while appealing to “families,” doesn’t do much for those that are not fortunate to have a family (e.g., “kids,” is what I gather). Maybe there are some recipes in there for our little dogs? I hope so. I’m just not partial to that “Families” bit. Look forward to the book all the same.

    - Malcolm Armstrong on October 28, 2017 Reply
    • Hi Malcolm, I understand your feeling about the use of the word family. I certainly didn’t mean to leave anyone out of offend any readers — I truly believe families come in all shapes and sizes. No pup treats but our dog loves the leftovers 🙂

    • My copy has been on order for a couple of months. Looking forward to a new cookbook to peruse and new recipes to try. I have no doubt this book will be a winner.

      - Karen C on November 28, 2017 Reply
  • I will be pre-ordering for me and as family gifts. Testing some of the recipes was great fun and I didn’t realize how that would translate into great excitement seeing the book actually “happen”. So excited to start a recipe marathon when the books arrive. I’ve never had a recipe failure using your recipes and guidance and with these mega tested 100 gems, this should be a number one go to cook book for families for years to come.

    My question about the book is this – are those photos of the finished product, I love knowing what it suppose to look like when finished and the photos inspire me to try the recipe.

You have been one of my most trusted and knowledgeable resources over the past few years. You have certainly “earned” our respect. I want to order the book now for a Christmas present for my daughter and wondering if your recipes have pictures. I didn’t see where we could take a peek.
