Resource for difficult to find cookbooks?

  • w

Hello -

I have heard great things about a cookbook from New Zealand: Recipes from Soul Bar, but can't seem to find a retailer that carries it in the US. I tried Borders, Barnes and Noble, and Amazon without much luck.

Suggestions welcome.

Matt

  1. You might try Kitchen Arts and Letters in New York. www.kitchenartsandletters.com - if they can't get it, I don't know who can.

    1. I'd try special order through an independent bookstore, or try Jessica's Biscuit (they have a website)--not listed, but you could inquire. It hasn't been released outside NZ apparently. Good luck.

        I live right by New England Book Fair - they are the owners of Jessica's Biscuit. I buy books there all the time but haven't had much luck with anything unusual or hard to find. Good prices on what they do have though.

      2. I use alibris.com and/or abebooks.com for trying to locate old or unusual cookbooks. I just did a quick search and didn't find anything that seems to match your description, but alibris (at least) has a service where they'll try to find titles they don't list.

        1. Try The Cookbook Store in Toronto - they carry only cookbooks and food-related books.

          1. Here's the book.

            Why not just ring them up or send an email? We still have diplomatic relations with New Zeland and the mail boat still goes once a month just like always.
