Creating  Cookbook

  • Join BakSpace or login with your account. Creating an account is free.
  • Once logged in, head over to and fill out your cookbook form:
    • Enter cookbook title
    • Select cookbook type
    • Select privacy level”
    • Upload a cover photo
    • If you have video, paste a Youtube URL
    • Select price – free to 25.99
    • Fill in your “about” — tell us what makes your cookbook awesome!
    • Select your categories. The more specific you are the better your cookbook will appear in browse. But don’t worry, our patent-pending contextual search allows us to search within a cookbook which will aid in discoverability.
    • If you already have recipes on the site, you’ll be able to select them in your recipes dropdown.
    • Click “Save Draft,”

At this point you can take a look at your cookbook and make sure it looks good. If you don’t have any recipes inside the cookbook yet, this is the time to head over to and start adding recipes. You can assign the recipe to a specific cookbook when you’re uploading it.

Once you’re ready to publish, head back to the cookbook and select “edit” which is in the upper right-hand corner of the page. Then check the publishing permissions and click the red “publish cookbook” button at the bottom of the page.

From there, our editors will take a look and start the process of publishing your cookbook.
