Please note: This is a post about a cookbook that Costco offers during the Thanksgiving weekend, while supplies last. I’m sharing this information with readers in good faith. I cannot send recipes to your email addresses or search the internet to find copies for you. Also, due to the voluminous inquiries about Costco’s cookbooks, I have discontinued answering emails about where to get their cookbook.
You can obtain PDF copies directly from Costco’s Website (links provided below) or look for past issues sometimes offered on eBay by third parties.
I am not associated with Costco other than shopping at their warehouses.
About this time of the year, for the last nine years, Costco has treated their members with an annual complimentary cookbook from The Costco Way series. This year’s recipe collection is packed with over 300 inspiring recipes showcasing meals and dishes using their own brand named items and those of well-known vendors. The recipes can easily be adapted using other products, but its presentation and layout makes it enticing to try it with products offered in their warehouses by their suppliers.
This year the theme is Smart Cooking and includes the following sections:
Appetizers and Beverages
Salads and Soups
What I enjoy about these cookbooks are the diversity of contemporary dishes that’s featured by both their suppliers and celebrity chefs like Mario Batali, Ellie Krieger, Steve Raichlen and several more. Every recipe is showcased with a mouthwatering image (most of the gorgeous food photography by Iridio Photography) that draws the reader in and beckons you to want to try every dish for yourself. The recipes are straightforward and designed to be enjoyed by today’s home cooks without having to invest hours to enjoy tasty and many healthful meals. Some of the recipes also include nutritional information for those with dietary needs.
During the year, I’ve received several emails from readers asking where they can find past Costco cookbooks. I have found many of these cookbooks sold on eBay, sold individually or as sets.
A secret for the masses
Past issues of their cookbooks are available in PDF format on the Costco Website. I’m including links for you to enjoy.
Why wait? This year’s cookbook is available right now through this weekend while supplies last and it’s complimentary (meaning free!). That has to be better than any Black Friday or weekend sale you got up early or stood in line for!
