SXSW Interactive and CookbookCreate.com Honor the Heart of Innovation with Original Recipes from Previous Festival Speakers
New York, NY -- Feb. 26 2013 -- CookbookCreate.com is honored to announce it will curate The Official 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival Cookbook. This is the first cookbook to celebrate the SXSW community, and it will include recipes from notable speakers who have made major contributions to the development of the SXSW community and interactive technology.
The Official 2014 SXSW Interactive Festival Cookbook will include recipes from Tara Hunt author and entrepreneur, Marc Nager CEO of Startup Weekend, Lisa Stone co-founder of Blogher, Baratunde Thurston author of How to be Black, and Amy Webb author of Data A Love Story.
“When I attended the SXSW Festival for the first time, I was struck by the vibrant, interesting community,” said Anna Curran, Cookbook Create’s founder. “These were the people who are making the culture we live in, and I wanted to share that spirit with the world. Cookbook Create helps people share their story through food-- and we wanted to help SXSW tell their story with this cookbook.”
“SXSW Interactive celebrates massive creativity,” says SXSW Interactive Festival Director Hugh Forrest. “Cooking is one of the many areas where this innovation manifests itself. So compiling a cookbook featuring recipes from some of our most interesting speakers is a great way to show what SXSW is all about.
The published volume will be available for sale at the 2014 Festival in the SX Bookstore. It will include more than 100 recipes selected from SXSW Interactive's 8000+ past speakers telling their fascinating stories of how the SXSW community has evolved.
