Free Cookbook Templates



Free Cookbook Templates



Gather Up Those Recipes! You might be surprised when you do a search online to find that it’s harder than you think to find free cookbook templates. This is probably because there isn’t a standard cookbook-creating program, especially one for free (or even on the cheap). Often times, templates are ignored in lieu of a user just designing a full cookbook by themselves. What if you don’t have the time to design your own cookbook, or you’re just looking for a quick solution to storing all those recipes written on scrap bits of paper? What is a cook to do? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered! Here’s a list of some great - and free - cookbook and recipe templates for download. Are you a Photoshop user? You may also want to check out my collection of Photoshop cookbook templates that you can download for free right here at Bright Hub. Microsoft offers a cute template for Microsoft Word that allows you to create your own cookbook.


In addition to their one cookbook template, they do offer quite a wealth of recipe card templates which you could simply place more than one on a page if you are looking for a quick solution. The recipe card templates range from simple to somewhat fancy and elaborate, and there are several different holiday themes for those looking to create holiday-based cookbooks. Think PowerPoint is just for business presentations and homework assignments?

You can also use the included sample chart for measurements, conversions, and nutritional information. Although it’s not as popular as most of the other applications in the Microsoft Office suite, Publisher is a fun application that you can use to create all sorts of desktop publishing projects - including cookbooks. If you haven’t done so before, you may want to open Publisher up and take a look at all the templates that come with the software. Unlike Word, Excel and PowerPoint templates, the easiest way to find Publisher templates is by opening Publisher and starting a new project. You can simply search for “cookbook” to see which templates are available. If you find a great generic book template, you can always spice it up (pun fully intended) with pictures and graphics of your choosing to make it a little more personal. And if all else fails and you find yourself unsatisfied with the free, or even the paid options out there, there is always the option of designing your own cookbook. Sure, it might take a little knowledge of some publishing programs, but you’d be surprised how easy it is. Bright Hub has an article that gives tips and tricks on how design your own cookbook. And of course, who says your template has to be a default cooking template?

Thanks for all your comments everyone! This recipe tastes great with proper honey too but the golden syrup makes it taste like the restaurant one - oddly with the name 'honey' in it. So where do I find Golden Syrup?


Well I am ready to make this recipe. What is golden syrup? My husband and I were just talking about wishing we knew how to make this at home, but that it was just too complicated. You must have been reading our minds! I'm always curious what the batter is to get chicken extra crispy, like they do in restaurants. I will definitely have to try your recipe. I love to eat at restaurants and then come home and re create the recipe for the dishes that I really like. Your Chicken in Honey Sauce sounds amazing. I have a recipe called Lemon Grass Chicken that I think you might like. I just started eating this chicken in the restaurants ! Looking forward to making this one at home! The pictures had my mouth watering and the recipe sounds like something I can do. I'll be looking for the golden syrup you listed. Thanks for sharing the recipe for one of my very favorite foods. Oh yes Asian food is the best. The words "crispy battered chicken in honey sauce" already makes my mouth water! I will try your recipe, thanks for sharing! I'm not sure which book that is?
