Great Food, Good Works.
Burgess Lea Press is a traditional trade publishing house specializing in fine books about food from excellent chefs, exemplary restaurants, world travelers and the new generation of family farms.
We select our subjects to reflect our own philosophy—that great food can help sustain good works. Our unique publishing model allows us to focus on books of the highest quality while supporting worthwhile food-related causes. Our titles are available wherever fine books are sold.
Burgess Lea Press donates 100% of after-tax publishing profits on every book to organizations that address hunger relief, farmland preservation and culinary education. Some of the non-profits we have supported include Edible Schoolyard Project, Stone Barns Center for Food & Agriculture, Adelante Mujeres, Urban Roots, Vetri Foundation for Children, and Drexel University Culinary Arts and Hospitality.
