At Cookbook Create, we believe there’s a story behind every recipe. We also believe that South by Southwest (SXSW) Interactive speakers tend to be some of the best storytellers around.
That was the thinking that inspired us to create an official festival cookbook with the help of the SXSW team. How awesome would it be to hear the stories behind the favorite recipes of the best & brightest in interactive technology? As it turns out, pretty awesome.
Over 100 former SXSW speakers shared their original recipes, including Randi Zuckerberg (Zuckerberg Media/Facebook), Dennis Crowley (Foursquare), Baratunde Thurston (Cultivated Wit/Comedian/Author, How to Be Black), and Frank Warren (PostSecret). From cocktails that glow in the dark to cookies shaped like eagles, the book’s recipes are innovative, diverse, and creative—much like the South by Southwest community itself.
This has been a true labor of love and we’re SO excited to share it with you. The cookbook is now available for pre-order and will also be sold at the SX Bookstore during the festival (March 7-14). In the meantime, follow us on Twitter and Facebook where we’ll be giving you sneak peeks of some particularly inventive dishes (Ben Parr’s Angel Hair Pasta Eggs Benedict, anyone?).
