“Roz Weitzman’s World of Chinese Comfort Food” – a baby ecookbook has been born!

Soon to be ePublished on : "Roz Weitzman's World of Chinese Comfort Food"


“Roz Weitzman’s World of Chinese Comfort Food” hits the ebook stores

Dearest friends,

The day has finally come, the day I was wondering recently if it ever would come!

But yes, beginning in May, 2012, with seven long months in the making, and hundreds of emails back and forth to service providers (editor, photo-enhancer, illustrator, cover designer, ebook formatter, and online epub retailers), not to mention the dozens of re-writes and edits, cooking the recipes over and over again, and hours spent before May amassing the recipes and photos, a book is born. I have given birth to a bouncing baby ecookbook – “Roz Weitzman’s World of Chinese Comfort Food”! And it’s not a lightweight at over 16,00o words, 120 Word pages, 70 recipes and over 100 photos and illustrations.

It’s just a thrill to know that the hard work has come to something; just knowing that I have been able to see the project to completion has been worth the effort.

In about a month, I will be releasing an illustrated version, substituting illustrations for the photos.

Plans for next projects you ask?

  • Getting the cookbook published in Chinese, Spanish, French, German
  • I have already started to compile and research the recipes for my next cookbook “Roz Weitzman’s World of Yunnan Food”.
  •  I still have my memoir on the back burner, the ideas percolating in my brain that would make the book a good read. The memoir is a combination of the trials and tribulations of the past, of growing up in a totally dysfunctional family, along with excerpts from my 100 plus, Letters From China. It’s heart warming and has a ‘happily ever after’ ending to the book.

On the Way to the Cookbook Launch

Today I finished my own edits of the Cookbook since my editor made revisions one week ago. I was stalled because the parents of my students took me to a resort on Fu Xian Lake for a few days.  Now my editor has the document back for what is hopefully the final edit.

it’s been a true labour of love – the amount of time I’ve sent on it is mind-boggling! One hundred pages of beautiful food – there’s a picture for each recipe (don’t even ask how much cooking I’ve had to do to get good pictures – good thing I enjoy cooking) and multiple pages for the title page of each section!

Since I’m epublishing on, the document will go to a Smashwords editor who will then format it for the Apple Store, Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and for all other ereader formats. And I’ve also got some ideas for the last step – producing a book cover – which is my next project to complete.
