Cookbook Style Guide – Handy References

We’re sharing the style guide and checklist we developed for this cookbook in the hopes that it will be useful for other people too.

The kitchen checklist (ODT & PDF) is to make sure you have all the relevant information when you’re done developing/testing the recipe.  The formatting checklist (ODT & PDF) covers some of the same items to be really sure the recipes are consistent and accurate; and adds a bunch of formatting & styling.  Some of it is based on the Microcosm style guide and other parts are from The Recipe Writer’s Handbook.

The recipe formatting checklist is a heavily used treasure trove of a resource that we referenced several times for each recipe in the book.
