Free Online Group Cookbooks Are Gifts That Last Year-Round
BakeSpace.com Interactive Cookbooks Enable Friends and Family Members to Share Treasured Recipes; Printable Gift Cards Make Great Last-Minute Stocking Stuffers
LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - December 6, 2007) - Food lovers and last-minute holiday
shoppers can create a uniquely personalized gift by building a free online
group cookbook on BakeSpace.com -- the Web's largest and tastiest
food-themed social network.
Online group cookbooks can be customized with photos, graphics, videos and
other visual elements. They take just minutes to create, and BakeSpace
makes it easy to print or e-mail personalized gift cards that include
instructions on how to access the cookbook and add recipes.
Group cookbooks are the latest feature added to BakeSpace.com. The
grassroots online community enables foodies to post, search and share
recipes, raid the "virtual pantry" (forums), chat in "the tearoom," create
blogs, upload videos, and stage their own live cooking demonstrations.
Nearly 20,000 registered members from more than 150 countries range from
teenagers just starting to explore the culinary lifestyle to great
grandparents who want to share and catalogue their family recipes.
"A group cookbook is an interactive and uniquely personal gift that will be
treasured by friends and family members long after the holidays are over,"
said BakeSpace Founder Babette Pepaj. "Unlike published or even customized
print cookbooks, online BakeSpace group cookbooks can continue to evolve
with new recipes. They provide an online gathering place for people to
connect and share their passion for all things food-related."

cards is available at www.BakeSpace.com/holidaygiftcards.
Launched in August 2006, BakeSpace has grown to become the Web's largest
food-themed social network. It is a grassroots online community where
members post, search and exchange recipes, share culinary tips and build
relationships with other food enthusiasts from around the world. Bon
Appetit magazine described the site as, "Charming in its simplicity,
country kitchen aesthetic and ease of use, BakeSpace is an open invitation
not only to bakers, but to cooks of all kinds." BakeSpace was a 2007 Webby
Award Official Honoree, and the only food-oriented site recognized in the
competitive "Social Networking" category. More information about BakeSpace
