Read your way into the kitchen with Belt's Community Cookbook Bundle.
Order and you'll receive a copy of Martha Bayne's Soup & Bread Cookbook: Building Community One Pot at a Time AND Bonnie Tawse's The Belt Cookie Table Cookbook. Cookies and soup! Two great tastes that go great together, plus the stories that make these recipes sing.
"Cookie tables may seem like retro relics these days, but Tawse’s book makes a compelling case for their continued relevance. ... During the pandemic especially, Americans may not be baking cookies for weddings, but they are rediscovering the joys of preparing food for their families and connecting to comforting traditions."—Kate Bernot, The Takeout
"A book like this makes me think that really I could live a lovely and fulfilling life and eat only soup."—Julia Kramer, Time Out Chicago
"For the past five years, a small press called Belt Publishing has been bringing out intriguing nonfiction books about the Midwest; now they've started a new series called Belt Revivals to publish classic Midwestern fiction as well as nonfiction."
"Five years after its launch as a regional press specializing in nonfiction books about the industrial Midwest, Belt Publishing is growing rapidly and gaining visibility in the marketplace."
"Small presses across Appalachia and the Rust Belt consistently publish, to little fanfare, incredibly diverse work — books that are lush, gritty, surprising and so very true. Perhaps the best example, or certainly the best place to begin, is Catte’s “What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia.” This edgy, meticulous work of nonfiction from Cleveland’s Belt Publishing dispels many myths about the region."
