For readers who don’t know, I’ve been working with the people at Russell Books in Victoria, BC for the past year or so to provide them some social media for their cookbook section. Russell Books is Canada’s largest used bookstore. ‘Used’ is a relative term. Most of the cookbooks I feature every week are called ‘new remaindered’. This means they have never been sold before, and are like new, but at really great discounted prices, sometimes as much as 50 to 70 percent off the cover price.
My Foodie Friday features used to feature just one book a week. I would photograph and take short videos of three recipes I made from that single book but over the holidays I started doing a video feature in which I would feature a number of cookbooks, and photos from each recipe I tried out in my home ‘test kitchen’. Here’s the latest one for your enjoyment and edification. After you start the video you can hit the CC button to activate the captions.
You can find the books at Russell Books at 747 Fort St. in Victoria, BC, or order them online at www.russellbooks.com. Books mentioned this week:
- Whole Protein Vegetarian by Rebecca Miller Ffrench (yes, two ‘f’s!)
- Good for You by Akhtar Nawab
- The Grain Bowl by Nik Williamson
- 7 Ways by Jamie Oliver
