About Page_Our Story

Our story

Food is so much more than a basic necessity that keeps our bodies running.  Food brings people together. Bridges languages and cultures. Creates warm memories. Inspires new adventures.

The Cookbook Creative is here to give food brands, travel destinations, and food entrepreneurs an easy, affordable, and hassle-free way to create a custom cookbook that truly showcases their story and unique personality.

Our goals

What gets us up every morning is simple - a commitment to...

  • Publishing a cookbook you'll be proud to share with friends, family, and fans.
  • Unlocking all the business and personal opportunities a high-quality cookbook has to offer.
  • Removing any barriers to professional publishing and pushing through any roadblocks that hold you back.

About Page_Our History

Our history

After working with a number of food-industry professionals, we've seen how frustrating it feels for them to have a great cookbook idea, but not quite know how to pull it off.

That's why we launched The Cookbook Creative in May 2021. The company may be young, but you can lean on our three decades of publishing and marketing experience to make that publishing dream a reality. 

Imagine holding your own gorgeous, published book in your hands. It's an enormous personal accomplishment. And even more important, you'll get the recognition and new marketing opportunities you and your brand deserve. 

Our team

Our team is here to help turn your dream of a beautiful, high-quality cookbook into reality.  We also make the process easy and fun!

Elaine Acker

Publishing & Food Guru

I started The Cookbook Creative because I think everybody who loves food deserves a chance to professionally publish a gorgeous cookbook.

When I'm not traveling and writing, I make sensational weekend breakfasts complete with scratch-made biscuits and gravy!


Keira Crooms

Organization Maestro 

I'm here to ensure Elaine has plenty of time to write and publish! That might mean anything from planning content to creating themed table decor for an event.

I love all the Asian foods - Bulgogi and sushi are always fun! And I love schnitzel recipes. 


Megan Giles

Designer Extraordinaire

I'm here to design your cookbook and ensure it looks great on the bookstore shelves and in your customers' hands.

I come from a ranching family, so when I'm chilling at home, there's a very good chance there's a steak on the grill. 


Jackie Easterday

Finance Wizard

Elaine loves words. I love numbers. It's my job to watch the bank accounts and keep the IRS happy, and ... I'm also here for chips & queso!  

When I'm not in spreadsheets, you can find me cheering on the Texas Longhorns, catching some live music, or sitting on the sidelines of my kids (many) sporting events!


Itohan Ellis

Process & Automation Nerd

I'm here to ensure the systems are built and operate like a well-oiled machine so that the team can focus on their genius zones!

When I'm not obsessing about automation, you'll find me out enjoying nature or trying not to get outsmarted by my twin daughters!
