Please Note: All food articles or culinary books written by Shenanchie O'Toole or edited by Food Fare staff used to be freely available online. However, after several unfortunate incidents of blatant plagiarism and unauthorized sales by several unknown entities, we decided to place the articles as e-books with Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Kobo Books to better track their usage. The articles are also available as Adobe Acrobat editions from our web site.

Most of the titles can be obtained in Kindle, Kobo and Nook-Book formats, which are part of the Food Fare Culinary Collection.
