I don't think it's at all a good thing that the price is so high, but  
if there are a lot of interested cooks in your kingdom, might the  
kingdom spring for a copy, then allow individual cooks to get copies  
of various recipes at, say, $0.05 per page plus postage? They'd recoup  
that, I suspect, in fairly short order, as long as the cooks who got  
those recipes didn't then post them online where people could snag  
them for free.
