The Roger Smith Cookbook Conference is scheduled for February 7, 8 and 9th 2013 at The Roger Smith Hotel in New York City. It is an eclectic gathering of those who publish, write, edit, agent, research, or simply buy and use cookbooks.

On Thursday, February 7, five workshops will explore issues in researching, reading and publishing cookbooks: Introduction to Cookbook Publishing; Reading Cookbooks: A Structured Approach and Structured Dialogue with Barbara Ketcham Wheaton; The Wild World of Self-Publishing; and The Way to Look: How to Do Research with Cookbooks, and Cookbook Publishing 360. (There is a separate registration fee for the workshops. Pre-registration is a must; no walk-ins.)

Friday and Saturday, February 8-9, are the core of the conference program with 32 panels. On each day, concurrent sessions will take place on a broad and stimulating range of topics, from manuscript cookery books and class and politics in cookbooks, to cookbooks in the digital age and the culinary app.

Join 103 writers, publishers, editors, agents and academics in New York in February. Explore the exciting list of participants and read many of their bios at:
