Many chefs, who spent a lifetime mastering the skills of the kitchen, are extremely uncomfortable with this contemporary trend. However, where there's a need, there's an answer, thanks in large part to the insight of creative companies, such as Amazon, that deal daily with writers, editors AND the new world of digital publications.
