Selling Non-kosher recipe books

undefined

Rabbi David Sperling

Shevat 11, 5774
Question
Dear Rabbi, I am currently publishing a book and I have all the rights to it even though I did not write it. This book contains some non-kosher recipes. Am I allowed to sell it on amazon.com? Many thanks, David
Answer
Shalom, If the book is not aimed explicitly for Jewish readers then it is fine. If the book is explicitly for Jews – "David's Shabbat Recipe Book" for example – then it would be forbidden to sell it as it encourages eating non-kosher food. Blessings.
