Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Caterer, artist, permaculturist, and master food preserver Jennie Cook shares a lifetime of favorite recipes in this gorgeous hand-illustrated and photographed visual-journal-style cookbook. Emphasizing the joy of sharing simple but delicious dinners at home with family and friends, Who Wants Seconds? is rich with personality, advice, color, and updated classic American recipes, with equal appeal to vegans and omnivores. Sidebars provide a wealth of spot-on advice for entertaining, as well as wisdom about sustainability, cooking for both flavor and health, and sourcing quality products.

Jennie Cook is the chef and owner of Jennie Cook's Catering and Plant-Based Parties, based in Los Angeles, California, and she's been cooking and working in hospitality since she was a teenager in New York. She is the chair of the board of Root Down LA, which promotes healthy eating at high schools, and she is a Master Food Preserver, a certified permaculturist, and a visual journaler.

Review:

"This engaging and colorful book covers a lot of food and fun. The author is a long-time caterer in California and an advocate of healthy dining and fills her volume with recipes that are unfailingly delicious. She is also an artist, which is clear from the book's spectacular presentation — each page tinted with a mix of amazing fonts, headings, notes, and photos. Jennie Cook is also a family woman, regaling the reader with anecdotes including the culinary exploits of her 'Chef Ma' and tales of a family vacation discovering delicacies in Spain. Among the innovative yet approachable recipes are burgundy beef stew, lacquered chicken, and a reputedly never-fail fruit crumble that can be made in several ways. There's a simple recipe for pickled cranberries and a 'Boozy Blackberry Balsamic Reduction' that adds 'pow' to everything it touches. Every dish has a story; Cook welcomes reader into her kitchen with recipes dedicated to excellent cuisine. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
