The Amazon.com veterans who started online culinary encyclopedia Foodista are getting into the book business — the cookbook business, of course.
Today they announced a recipe contest for food bloggers, the winners of which will contribute to a cookbook the company’s publishing next year.
The concept surfaced at a food blogging conference the startup held earlier this year.
Visitors to Foodista.com may vote on their favorite submissions and the top 100 will be used in “The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook.”
“The creativity we see from food bloggers is so impressive, we decided
that a collection in book form would be a great snapshot of this emerging form of food writing,” founder Barnaby Dorfman said in the release.
