Spice Kitchen: Healthy Latin and Caribbean Cuisine

Kingston Imperial. Jul. 2022. 176p. ISBN 9781954220249. $35. COOKING
Fox, a chef and fan-favorite winner on Gordon Ramsay’s Hell’s Kitchen, delivers her debut cookbook featuring her signature flair for creating Latin and Caribbean-inspired dishes with a healthy twist. Avoiding processed foods, Fox creates bold flavors with whole ingredients. Recipes cover breakfast to desserts and cocktails, including many traditional dishes such as chicken tinga and posole rojo. Fox accomplishes these healthy takes with simple pantry substitutions and provides detailed lists and descriptions of her go-to choices, including the nutritional benefits of each. Best of all, these substitute ingredients (including avocado oil and coconut cream) are available in most grocery stores. The book’s colorful layout is easy to read and inviting, and each recipe includes serving suggestions and a personal and informative introduction by Fox.
VERDICT Fox’s fans will love her inaugural effort, and so will library patrons looking to cook with natural ingredients that provide big flavors.
