 Tw-Eat Tw-Eat: Enter the Twitter Cookbook, in 140 Characters
With all things going the micro-blogging way, so is food. A Canadian food writer, who posted her recipes on Twitter, is all set to publish a cookbook in the 140-character format.

Maureen Evans, 29, began sharing her passion for cooking on Twitter almost three years ago, and has gained more than 32,000 fans on @cookbook, her Twitter account.

But the big moment came when her recipes caught the eye of publisher Artisan, who persuaded her to compile her recipe tweets into a book- 'Eat Tweet'-which will be launched on Thursday.

"The real benefit is that it's such a small book and it has 1,000 recipes in it, and it can fit in your back pocket," the Telegraph quoted Evans as saying.

Her recipes are diverse and reflect her love for cooking, which was instilled by her parents while growing up in British Columbia, Canada, and her time living in San Francisco.

Recent tweets ranged from a fruity couscous to a Thai yam khao pot, or corn salad.

Despite Twitter's tight format, Miss Evans said she aims to pepper her recipes with a dash of lyricism.

"I do think food writing should appeal to the ear as well as the stomach. I try to leave some flavour of food writing there," said Evans, who now lives Belfast, Northern Ireland.

But she admitted that some recipes were difficult to translate into "twitterese."

"I don't intend to replace people's home cookbooks at all. It's a little bit of fun and a creative approach," she said.
