Do you think there are over 1,000 cook books in publication?

I plan to write a cook book and just wondered what the market is like.

    Of course there is. Every celebrity chef has at least 10.

    You would probably need a unique slant / way to get your ideas / recipes into print.

    It would help you to get advice from someone in the 'know', Good luck.

    More like hundreds of thousands if not a million. I have personally owned over 1,000 cook books.

    At least that many, probably more.

    Nearly saturated. You'll need a specific angle.

    Thousands more than that, bookshops and second hand book shops are awash with them.

    It has to be different to be accepted by a publisher.

    I probably have owned that many if I include the books sold at a garage sale and those I gave away and the ones in the house right now.  (although I am including cooking magazines like Cook's Country and America's Test Kitchen (Cook's Illustrated) And Sift.

    Writing a Cookbook is not easy.   You can not sit down and write recipes that you have obtained from other sources.   Figure 18 to 24 months from concept to print, if you can find a publisher interested in the topic of the book.
