The Pork Checkoff has launched its first ever electronic cookbook, titled Cooking for Comfort.

This free e-cookbook features time-honored favorites and new twists on classics from James Beard, Award-winning Chef Michelle Bernstein, barbecue expert and author Ray Lampe, and ten leading food bloggers from across the United States.

"Pork plays a part in many of our favorite comfort food dishes - they are nutritious, soothing, savory and delicious," said Karen Richter, National Pork Board president and a producer from Minnesota. "This e-cookbook is the perfect way to celebrate pork and engage our consumers this holiday season."

Cooking for Comfort includes:

•  Two recipes from Chef Michelle Bernstein, includingChorizo and Cheese Empanadas with Avocado Crema. Bernstein, who learned how to make empanadas from her mother at the early age of 8, made them her own by adding homemade chorizo.

•  A modern pork twist on a classic favorite with Ray Lampe'sPork Noodle Soup.

•  Two recipes each from 10 leading food bloggers, like Ali Ebright's Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops and Jenny Flake's Ham and Cheddar Green Chili Breakfast Sandwiches.

• A selection of comforting favorites from the National Pork Board infused with modern twists, like BBQ Pork Mac n' Cheese.
"This free cookbook highlights some of the tastiest ways to warm up with pork this winter," said Richter. "We compiled this cookbook to inspire cooks and honor all the ways that pork can be used to create hearty, feel-good dishes."
