Of the multitude of niche writing markets on the scene today, the food and cookbook niche is one that continues to grow steadily. Not only because more people are cooking, but because people are being exposed to more cuisines and food topics are reaching into other niches.
Twenty years ago, Chinese cooking was the dominant ethnic cuisine. Today, Chinese has given way to Hunan, Szechwan, Japanese, Korean, Vietnamese, Thai, and Mongolian; not to mention all of the fusion options avant garde chefs have developed.
Food issues have also moved into the health and wellness, self-help, spirituality, entertaining, and even home design markets.
This is a boon for food writers!
Publishers and editors in this niche market are ALWAYS on the look out for fresh, new ideas and voices. And books that catch on with readers can be reprinted (and generate income) for decades. Think about the cookbooks you collect and use for decades. How many of them can still be found in bookstores today?
