Time to pass the torch: Looking for new VegCookbook Club organizer(s)

Dear Wonderful VegCookbook Clubbers,

It is time for me to pass the torch to a new organizer, or organizers of the VegCookbook Club. The VegCookbook Club started in 2009 with my posting photos on Facebook of vegetarian and vegan recipes I’d tried.

In spring of 2011, I asked the readers of my personal blog, Have Fun * Do Good, to recommend their favorite vegetarian and vegan cookbooks and recipes.

And in December 2011, I started the VegCookbook Club!

VCBC coming soon!

Over the last 2.5 years, we have cooked through dozens of VegCookbooks together. Some recipes we loved, and some  . . . not so much ( :

We shared our photos and reflections on this blog, on Twitter, on Flickr and on our continually growing and active Instagram community.

Some of you have even made friends with each other across the Interwebs and met up in person!

In many ways, particularly through Instagram, I feel like the VegCookbook Club has grown bigger than me and has a life of its own now. I’m hoping one, or more of you will keep it going in whatever form it wants to evolve into next.

I’ve paid for this WordPress blog and URL through the end of the year, so if you organize yourselves between now and then, I can leave a post up pointing people to where to find you. I will take down the blog, Twitter feed and Flickr group at the end of the year. The #vegcookcookclub hashtag on Twitter and Instagram will live on.

If you would like to be an organizer, or co-organizer of the VegCookbook Club, please email me at britt AT brittbravo DOT com. I will put you in touch with anyone else who expresses an interest so that you can make a plan together.

Thank you thank you thank you for being such an amazing community. I am honored to have been a part of it.

  3. Thanks for all of your hard work Britt and for the mini-history since I was not with the group at the start 🙂 My cookbook collection looks remarkably similar to yours! I especially appreciate your steering us to “How it all Vegan” -I’m not sure I would have found it on my own and I have some favorites in that one. I hope you will tell us about your new adventures-you have been posting very cool pictures on Instagram! Best wishes always. ~ Julie

    • Thanks, Julie! And thank you for all that you’ve contributed to the Club.

      I hope that you and the other women who expressed an interest in keeping it going will find a fun way for it to continue.

    We will miss you Britt! Thank you for all you have done for this group. You have a lot to be proud of!

  5. Thank you so much, Britt, for creating the project and giving us so much fun and pleasure. I love all the new friends I’ve made through the club. If the club doesn’t continue in the same form, I will continue to work out of the books I’ve stockpiled, and still be posting on Instagram with all my buddies! Thanks again, and good luck in all your new endeavors!

  6. Thank you for all your tireless energy and enthusiasm. You will be missed but like you, my cookbook collection will live on. Perhaps talk to Allison at http://vegansprout.com. I know she was thinking of doing cookbook clubs, too.

  7. Britt, thank you sooo much for starting this wonderful idea that brought so many of us together! Best of luck to you! xo
