Has anyone seen this/played with this?? http://experimental.worldcat.org/xfinder/cookbookfinder.html

"Cookbook Finder is an experimental, works-based application that provides access to thousands of cookbooks and other works about food and nutrition described in WorldCat records. You can search by Dewey, person, place, topic (e.g., course, ingredient, method and more) and browse related works by author and topic."

Oh the hours I could lose.

I can't get it to do anything. If I click on a picture (yes, many of those books are tantalizing), it just says "sorry your search didn't turn up anything." Or some similar words. If I typed in the title, nada. Author's name, nada.

Well that's unfortunate because it looks so tempting. I couldn't get it to work either. I tried the names of famous works and cooks like James Beard and got nothing.

Wow. Talk about experimental! I had two searches work for me yesterday just before I posted. How sad.

ETA: I tweeted WorldCat. Let's see if they respond.

Oh, it is working, and yes, ever so dangerous a site! Three books on first glance I would love to read.

I've just played about with it, too. Great time-waster and dream-maker!

Thanks for the reference. Now I can further indulge my passion for food and cookbooks ! And I agree on the amount of time I could spend on this task -- like falling down the Pinterest Rabbit hole ! I just tried the link and it works
