Quarto serves up personalised cookbooks

The Quarto Group is launching a new online business which will enable readers to create personalised hardback cookbooks.

This is Your Cookbook lets users create a 96-page hardback, collating recipes from Quarto’s archives as well as incorporating their own recipes. Users can also add images, select a front cover and write their own dedication.

Quarto c.e.o. Marcus Leaver, a former chef, thought up the idea of letting users put together their own cookbook. The project is being run by Quarto publisher Mark Searle, who said: “The idea for This is Your Cookbook came about when we were talking about our favourite cookbooks. We’ve all got a few that we turn to again and again, but every cookbook we own has recipes we don’t want in it.”
