How to create your own cookbooks with myfoodbook

Learn how to create your own eCookbooks for free online on myfoodbook! We'll teach you how to collect recipes, upload your own recipes, and customise your eCookbook from cover to cover. When you're done you can download it as a PDF, all for free.

1. How to make your cookbook collection

Watch the video below and follow the steps to kick off your cookbook project. In the video below you'll learn how to: 

  • Create a new cookbook
  • Add a title and subtitle to your books
  • Personalise your cookbook, including adding a dedication or introduction
  • Choose a cover image from our collection of custom designs or upload your own image. In this step, you'll find the selection of our NEW Christmas cover designs to make your own too

Tips for making cookbooks: 

  • You can make as many cookbooks as you like
  • Create themes to make using your books easy. Examples include: 30 minute weeknight ideas, Kids favourite dinners, Simple slices
  • Try to limit the number of recipes in your cookbooks to make them easier to print (see how to create eBooks below) 
  • Does everyone ask you for your potato salad recipe, or Aunty Sal for her trifle? Take photos from your Christmas gathering, upload your own recipes, and give the family a copy of your Christmas Day recipes to share the fun and the feast of the day! 

2. Adding recipes to your cookbook 

The video below shows you how to add recipes on myfoodbook to your individual cookbooks. Collect as many as you like, so you can easily find them to cook again and again.

Recipes featured on myfoodbook are all professionally tested and supplied with permission from Australia's top cooking and food brands. Ingredients and appliances are available to shop at major supermarkets, or direct from the brand (see shopping links on on the recipe pages). The recipes on myfoodbook are free to browse, print, shop and save into your own cookbooks thanks to these incredible partnerships.

3. Creating your own recipes 

Complete your cookbook by adding your own recipes. Watch the video to see how easy it is to create fully customised recipes, including adding your own images. It's a great way to capture and share those special recipes that everyone loves. Why not create eBooks for special events and moments such as: 

  • Mum and dad's best recipes - a survival guide for the kids when they first move out of home.
  • New baby book - recipes to help new parents cope with dinners for bubs and the rest of the family.
  • Best baking ideas - perfect for the passionate baker to share their amazing cakes, slices, puddings and more.

4. Download your eCookbook 

You can turn your digital cookbooks into downloadable eBooks to save, print or share with family and friends online. Watch the demo to learn how to download your book in either portrait or landscape format. Ebooks come with interactive features too, such as:

  • An interactive index page: Simply click the recipe you want to go straight to each recipe.
  • QR codes: scan the code on recipes to watch videos, create shopping lists, shop products and more.

We're creating even more interactive features for our cookbooks, so keep any eye out for these in future newsletters!
