THANK YOU FOR FIFTEEN INCREDIBLE YEARS ON WEST TENTH STREET! I’VE LOVED EVERY MINUTE OF IT.

Now for the next chapter: Through the end of January I’ll be in the process of moving to East Second Street. It will be bigger and better, with a garden in the back, in a charming neighborhood with much to discover.
Here’s to Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks, Phase III!
Please call or email me any time—I’ll get back to you.

AND . . . I’M IN!

Portrait of Bonnie with cookbooks

It has been my great pleasure to serve up a delicious selection of cookbooks to customers near and far for the past 15 years.

On Monday, January 26, my books and I were transported through the “Blizzard of ’15” (not really, as it turned out, but it was snowing pretty hard) to 28 East Second Street, where the East Village meets the Lower East Side. What a great neighborhood. It’s all food! Um, I mean, it’s all GOOD.
     I’ve started unpacking, the shelves are being installed, and I’m enjoying the view of the snow-blanketed garden through the back door. Getting used to how big the new space is (the old shop sure was small, wasn’t it?).
     I’m sure it will be another two weeks before I’m ready to open for business. Until then, please note that I may lose internet service for a few days, likely from Sunday through Tuesday. My shop phone calls are being forwarded to my cell phone, and I’m not too handy with a cell phone. So I’m missing calls, too.
Please be patient, and try to avoid cookbook crises until I’m back on the job!      — Bonnie

Ellis Island Cookbook cover

The ideal souvenir of a visit to New York: Tom Bernardin’s Ellis Island Cookbook. I also carry the wonderful 1961 Greenwich Village map that Tom has had reprinted. Read about it here.

Italian cookbooks

The Italian cookbooks fill three shelves and, in times of true abbondanza, overflow onto the table and even the floor. The first Italian cookbook published in English in the United States, Simple Italian Cookery by Antonia Isola (a pseudonym), appeared in 1912.
