Hector Wong's Debut as an E-Book Writer
Aug 10, 2013 | From the kitchen of Rose
The inimitable Hector Wong has combined five of his exceptional skils: IT, photography, Spanish translation, and cake baking and cake decorating, to produce his first cookbook: Cheesecakes.
In the words of Hector:
It is to my delight pleasure to share with you, that I have my first cookbook on the market: Cheesecakes by Hector Wong. It is an iTunes iPad exclusive. Click here to buy the book.
The book is available in 51 countries, and includes Spanish translations embedded as a pop up button. Enjoy what I have to say about Cheesecakes, and how I wrote the ingredients measures and instructions. This ebook includes instant and free updates for the few errors it may contain, or for additional photos and multimedia I add as I bake with it over and over again.
