I’ve got a big announcement to make tonight on Men Cook Too. The first thing I want to say is I apologize for the lack of updates, posts and recipes, but I have been preparing for what will be a busy week for Men Cook Too next week. As You all know, the Super Bowl will be held on Feb. 2 and in the build up to that big day (and national holiday if you ask me), I will be posting five unique and amazing recipes that can easily be completed on Super Bowl Sunday. These aren’t your conventional chips and salsa recipes, but they will be easy to do and have great flavor.
Alright, the big announcement we have here on Men Cook Too tonight is that the first proof for the cookbook was shipped out to me this morning… This was the header of the message I had waiting for me when I woke up today.
This is great news and means that we are this much closer to getting the cookbook in your kitchen, in your local bookstores and more. This has been such an exciting process and one that I am so glad to have been given the opportunity to complete (Thanks again to all my Kickstarter backers. I couldn’t have done this without your support). Also, to all my backers who check in to this website, those of you who weren’t getting physical copies of the book, but were still getting recipe cards, you should have gotten these in the mail. These were sent out last week and if they haven’t gotten to you yet, should be soon.
Back to the proof, I am fully anticipating the book needing some revisions done, but I will take care of that the first night I get it and will send it back to my publishing company. From there, it should be about another week for the proof and assuming everything was done, the book will be published and everyone will be getting their books soon.
Another thing I want to show all my loyal readers is what the book cover is going to look like. We are still going through the final steps in refining the cover to accommodate the 116 page full color cookbook, but this is close to what you will see in stores and online. My good friend Kristen, or Kristalyn, who is a terrific graphic designer helped with the cover and is very talented at what she does. If you know anyone looking for a new logo, design or any other work, click the cover below and reach out to Kristen to see what she can do for you.
I also want to let my backers know that if any of you want extra copies of the book, wine glasses or corkscrews, you can make an order through the Men Cook Too store and I will ship everything to you with your reward. Initially, you will have to pay for shipping (the system I use doesn’t allow for customer changes in the cart), but once I get your email saying you were a backer, I will refund whatever was charged for shipping.
That’s all for now, but please check back next week when my Super Bowl recipe extravaganza begins!
