  • Learn the Skills You Need to DIY and Self-Publish a Cookbook

    Good news: as a food blogger, you already have a lot of the skills needed to self-publish a cookbook and do most of the work yourself. We'll cover how you can leverage existing skills and what else you'll need to create a beautiful cookbook your readers will love.

  • Learn the Time and Financial Commitment that goes into Self-Publishing

    Writing a cookbook feels overwhelming, especially when you're doing it all yourself. I'll give you a peek behind the curtain so you can see exactly what you're in for, both in terms of workload and shelling out your own cash.

  • Learn Why All of this is Worth It​

    Writing a cookbook totally changed my career as a food blogger and I'm so excited for you to learn how it can do the same for you. I wouldn't be self-publishing another one if it wasn't worth it, right?

Hey, I'm Chelsea!

I’m the blogger behind the food blog A Duck’s Oven and cookbook author of Everyday Sous Vide: it's all French to me.


By day, I’m the Director of Marketing for a sous vide company. Creating products that are appealing to consumers and marketing them is literally what I do for a living! More importantly, I’ve been food blogging for almost 10 years.


I self-published a cookbook myself a little over a year ago and have been approached with 3 cookbook offers since then. I’ve done multiple speaking appearances, cooking demos, podcast tapings, and TV spots in promotion of my book.


My mother in law told me as a teenager to “let them tell you no.” Like most of my peers, I suffer from imposter syndrome on a regular basis. But if there’s something I’m excited and passionate about, I don’t let fear hold me back. I do everything I can to make it happen for myself.


When I wrote my book, I had been a food blogger for 8 years and had always had the dream of writing my own cookbook. But what about, and why me? Then the topic hit me, and I knew I had to do it, but had no idea where to start. So I dove in, and with a lot of pain, time, and effort, figured it all out for myself. It’s the best thing I’ve ever done. Let’s accomplish the same for you.
