The cookbook ghostwriter is part writer, part recipe developer and part project manager. Whether it's a YouTube phenom or the head of a high-end restaurant empire, the person on the cover didn't always write the cookbook. Sometimes the writer is acknowledged on the cover. Sometimes the writer gets a thank-you in the acknowledgements. Sometimes the writer wants no credit.
