prevent device transfer based on book tag?

spent a couple minutes searching, but haven't found what i was looking for.

can i prevent calibre from transferring undesired books to my device, based on tags or other metadata?

for instance, i have a few epub copies of cookbooks i've purchased, but those just never look good on my kobo -- plus, they're hundreds of megabytes each. i'd like to make it so that any book i tag with "cookbook" or "recipe" or whatever, never gets copied to my devices.

sometimes i'll go a month or more between device library syncs, and i'll have bought 1-10 more books in that time. and sometimes i'll accidentally select a 900mb cookbook by mistake, and hit the "send to device" button. does calibre offer a feature to help me keep from doing this?

Not directly but you can always hide such books by clicking the tag twice in the tag browser on the left and only then do send to device operation.
