Cookbook Editors and Cookbook Publishers

Cookbook Editors and Publishers

According to Newsweek, an advance for a cookbook by a celebrity chef can hit $1 million. Here are the annual incomes of a few celebrity chefs (again estimated by Newsweek): Mario Batali, $4 million; Alain Ducasse, $6.5 million; Emeril Lagasse, $9 million; and Jean-Georges Vongerichten, $5 million.


Note: I guarantee that there have been changes in the listing below since I first developed it. Use this list only as a guide to the publishers specializing in cookbooks. Don't spend a lot of time or money contacting these publishers en masse. Focus on one or two at a time and write them a great query letter.
