The New Food Processor Bible by Norene Gilletz

The interviews, reviews and blogs are coming in for The New Food Processor Bible, which is already on its second printing! The latest review, with sample recipes is by

The NEW Food Processor Bible: 30th Anniversary Edition (Whitecap) 

There aren't any photos and it isn't in a binder with tabs - sorry! However, with 115 recipes that were added when I did the Food Processor Bible in 2002 plus another 65 new recipes in this anniversary edition, that makes 180 additional recipes compared to the original yellow cookbook, enough to make a brand new cookbook on its own! 

[More Info][Interviews][Reviews] [Blogs]

Courtesy of The Chicago Jewish Star, stroll through Norene's food processor cookbook history with their 1980 review of The Pleasures of your Processor (now out of print), their 2008 reminiscences of The Pleasures of your Processor and their current review of The New Food Processor Bible. All three reviews feature Norene's super recipes.

There are still a few copies The Food Processor Bible (published 2002) remaining.
