This Week on the Web
Learning about the newest cookbooks and reference guides for culinary professionals published exclusively by Van Nostrand Reinhold, a division of International Thomson Publishing, is as easy as a visit to Culinary Arts. You can enter yourself in a drawing for $200 worth of VNR books, order books for 20% off the cover price, scroll through a list of their new food-and wine-related titles or subscribe to the Culinary Professional's Online Newsletter edited by Chef Gary Holleman, author of "Food and Wine Online" and "Travel and Hospitality Online" (both VNR publications). This monthly electronic newsletter focuses on Internet resources and bulletin boards for those working in the food industry.
The addition of book reviews by national newspapers, ordering information for academic and examination copies and links to sites for people seeking careers in other areas makes for a powerful marketing tool for VNR and an interesting stop for caterers, chefs and aspiring culinary professionals.
