Seeking Recipe Testers!


Have you ever wanted to be a recipe tester? You know, try out recipes and report back on how they turned out--what went wrong or what could be improved? I know I have. Well here's a great opportunity to do it.

Next year Collectors Press is publishing a book called The Good Home Cookbook: More than 1000 Classic American Recipes and in the meantime they are soliciting home cooks, professionals, and food writers to take part in testing recipes in their own kitchens. That means you! Not sure if you're up to it? You can get a sneak peek at what's required by looking at the recipe test form, available online.

What do you get in exchange for participating? Test one recipe and you will be listed as a contributor, test five or more recipes and you will get a free copy of the cookbook. Pretty cool, don't you think?

You can learn more about the book and how the testing is going by checking out the blog here. If you'd like to be a tester, send an email to recipetester@collectorspress.com and you will be contacted shortly afterwards with details. This opportunity seems to be open to ALL prospective testers--including those not US-based.
Happy testing!
