This is the README file for the MAKECOOKBOOK bundle, version 0.85 dated 


The MAKECOOKBOOK bundle contains the files needed to create (using 
LuaTex) a nice quality family cookbook in a form ready to submit to a 
print-on-demand printer. Modifiable choices have been made regarding 
standard book features such as trim size, margins, headers/footers, 
chapter heading formatting, front matter (copyright page, table of 
contents, etc.) and back matter (recipe index). Commands and environments 
have been created to format the food stories and recipes. The user will 
need to: (1) supply their own food stories and recipes(!), and (2) select 
(install if necessary) the needed OpenType fonts as briefly discussed 
below and further described in the documentation. Please note that no new 
document class or package is included here.  Rather, we provide a 
modifiable preamble and a small number of other files that, together, 
fully support creation of all of the internal pages of a cookbook (i.e., 
everything except the cover art).

This work consists of the following files:

README                    this file
makecookbook-doc.tex      documentation file
makecookbook-doc.pdf      PDF of the above
makecookbook.tex          the “root” cookbook file
makecookbook.pdf          PDF of the cookbook
cb-preamble.tex           the preamble for the cookbook
cb-lettrine.cfl           config file for the lettrine package           config file for makeindex/imakeidx
cb-frontmatter.tex        the cookbook front matter
cb-chapterA.tex           a sample cookbook chapter
cb-chapterB.tex           a sample cookbook chapter
cb-imageA.jpg             a sample image (from mwe package)
cb-imageB.jpg             a sample image (from mwe package)


In the CTAN zip archive, the above files are organized into directories 
and subdirectories as follows:

makecookbook/             The top level makecookbook package directory
|   README        
|   makecookbook-doc.tex
|   makecookbook-doc.pdf
|--- mycookbook/   
     |   makecookbook.tex
     |   makecookbook.pdf
     |   cb-preamble.tex 
     |   cb-lettrine.cfl
     |--- tex/     
     |       cb-frontmatter.tex                      
     |       cb-chapterA.tex      
     |       cb-chapterB.tex        
     |--- img/     

As described in the documentation, the idea is that the mycookbook/ 
directory will be the root directory of your cookbook project.  
All of your cookbook chapters will be held in mycookbook/tex/
All of your cookbook images will be held in mycookbook/img/


The MAKECOOKBOOK bundle assumes you have installed the three fonts 
listed below. (All are OpenType, including TrueType, and all are 
licensed under the SIL Open Font License, Version 1.1). To have a 
successful compile "out of the box", these fonts must be installed 
on your system:

SERIF-------> EB Garamond (version from Google Fonts)
SANS SERIF--> Lato        (version from
SCRIPT------> Italianno   (version from Google Fonts)

As described in the documentation, you can easily replace those three 
fonts with your favorite serif, sans serif and script fonts, so long 
as your replacement fonts have certain required font features.
