The digital edition will now be available in the U.S. and Canada wherever Random House e-books are sold. The beautiful photographs are optimized for full-color e-readers, however images will also appear on black-and-white devices.
Martha Stewart, Founder of Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, stated: “Cookbooks lend themselves very well to e-readers. The digital edition of Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast is a useful complement to the print version of the book. Home cooks are now able to access all 250 delicious, easy-to-prepare recipes quickly and easily in whatever format they choose.”
“Martha Stewart and Clarkson Potter have enjoyed nearly 30 years of collaboration and it is very exciting to begin this new chapter together,” said Shakely. “Martha’s Everyday Food cookbooks have been so enormously popular and Martha herself is a cornerstone of Clarkson Potter, so this seemed the perfect choice to begin our illustrated digital program.”
Philip Patrick continued, “We are thrilled to start our full-color digital cookbook publishing program with such a beautiful and timely cookbook. We look forward to publishing more of our illustrated bestsellers for e-readers.”
Everyday Food: Fresh Flavor Fast features 250 economical, flavorful, and healthful Everyday Food magazine recipes, organized by meal and category. Accompanied by stunning photographs, the recipes are quick and simple to prepare and filled with fresh, accessible ingredients. The book is the follow-up to the bestselling Everyday Food: Great Food Fast, which was released in March 2007 and has 670,000 copies in print.
