BackerKit Surveys Live

It’s been exactly one month since the Kickstarter finished! One month of a bit of rest and then me getting going on turning my dream into a reality.

Doing research for the many recipes for the cookbook. It's great to have a legitimate reason to buy more cookbooks and read them in the office.
Doing research for the many recipes for the cookbook. It's great to have a legitimate reason to buy more cookbooks and read them in the office.

The big news is that I’ve set up BackerKit for surveys. This means that you can change pledge levels, get extra books, and other great things. You should find an email from me & BackerKit in your inbox within the next day.

Although I’m not actually shipping the cookbooks until next year, these surveys will help me with planning. For example, I’m asking what your preferences are for measurement units, dietary restrictions, and baking difficulty. Everyone will still be getting the same book, but if I find out an unexpectedly large portion of people want gluten-free recipes (for example), I’ll know to spend extra time on those recipes.

Your Name in the Cookbook

As a thank you to all of you for helping make this dream come true, you can choose to get your name in the acknowledgements in the book! Just put in your name as you’d like it to appear when you complete your survey. Please use your actual name, abbreviations of surnames are fine for anonymity reasons (e.g. “Jenn S” instead of “Jenn Sandercock”).

Note: I will be reading all these names and reserve the right to exclude any language that is inappropriate (e.g. swear words).

Seattle Workshop Backers

I’ve locked in a venue and two dates in November this year! If you backed at this level, please complete the survey as soon as possible so I can email you to confirm your preferred date and time. If you didn’t back at this level, you can still upgrade!

Backer Updates vs Newsletter

I’m going to keep these backer emails pretty short with just the important things you need to know for your pledge, e.g. updating your shipping address, when big milestones happen. I’m doing this so that you know if an email comes in from Kickstarter it’s a big deal and you should pay attention.

For those of you who’d like to find out more about what goes into making the Edible Games Cookbook, sign up to my newsletter. Every month, I’ll post about what I’ve been working on, events I’m going to and maybe have some guest posts about layout, photography and illustration. Read the August Edition where I talk about dice s'mores, budgeting and recipe planning, as well as upcoming events like XOXO and SHUX.

That's all for now. Thanks for backing, folks! Please fill out that survey and eat something that puts a smile on your face.

      No Kickstarter update for this month (September) since there's nothing backers need to do right now. If you're interested in what I'm up to, you can sign up for the newsletter and see this month's newsletter here: https://mailchi.mp/2c6f3a543a62/getting-results

      @Jenn Yes, it keeps things interesting! Three cheers for metric masses! Wait, no, TEN cheers for metric masses!

      @Nathan Thanks for letting me know. It seems like metric people are passionate about metric. I'm a metric person by origin and so I'll definitely be including it. In fact, I'll be including all measurement systems in the book. The survey was just to help me work out which systems I need to spend the most time checking.

      Temperature swings of 22degC sounds like fun. I love fluctuating temperatures. I get bored when it's the same thing day after day.

      Hi, Jenn! The survey was generally excellent, but please permit me to state a strong preference for cooking by ingredient weights. When it doesn't matter much (e.g. taste twiddling), spoons, dashes, and pinches are utterly fine; however, for the chemistry of baking (for example), measuring by grams and the like generally make recipes more compatible with and tweakable for other parts of the world and varied and varying climates. For example, where I live, 22ºC temperature swings in a single day are quite normal, not to mention the changes in humidity and barometric pressure.

      Thank you for your kind, most benevolent consideration! I mainly wanted to support this excellent project, but it would be quite nice to be able to reproduce your success to some degree, as well.

      Hi Kelly! I messaged you on Facebook about this. It's totally expected and just part of the weird and wonderful ways of going from Kickstarter to BackerKit.

      If others have issues or questions, definitely get in touch and I'd be happy to help out.

      my backerkit survey said I had a credit of $110, and only had me listed as buying 1 Gourmand Edition. The survey was trying to get me to use the credit to add extras to my order. But there should be no credit. I want 2 of the Gourmand Editions, which is why I pledged $220. I m confused.
