Bonnie Slotnick Cookbooks‘s shop hours are 1-7 p.m., 6 days a week and by appointment or by chance. Ironically, by chance, I walked by 163 Tenth Street on my way somewhere else and remembered that I had always wanted to visit her cookbook shop. Seeing a wooden OPEN sign outside, I walked up the steps to find a Dutch door and another door ajar. Bonnie, who was sitting at a desk, was incredibly welcoming and friendly. The shop has new and vintage/rare cookbooks and some kitchenwares and interesting articles like handmade greeting cards and bookmarks. I had read about Bonnie’s store in various magazines through the years, and now that I live a few blocks away, I am happy to finally visit. Bonnie and I chatted and she checked out my blog, especially the link to NYU’s food library. She showed me a copy of the New York World’s Fair Cook Book by Crosby Gaige that she has in shop, a book that was featured on NYU’s article about the library and that goes for $200. In addition to her shop, she also appraises cookbooks. I highly recommend visiting her shop. It’s like looking through your mom’s and grandma’s collection of cookbooks and recipe booklets from days gone by.
