Rodale. Sept. 2021. 288p. ISBN 9780593232828. $27.99. COOKING
Since starring with her twin, Tamera, on the TV show Sister, Sister, Tia Mowry has grown her award-winning media career into a lifestyle brand. After the end of her Cooking Channel show Tia Mowry at Home, Mowry launched her web series Quick Fix. Previous books (Whole New You; Oh, Baby!) shared her experiences with dietary changes and pregnancy. This latest collection offers her take on family-friendly cooking. The first half of the book provides an overview of kitchen basics and staples, while the second half contains flexible recipes, such as a loaded potato bar, where everyone adds their favorite toppings. Other recipes, like banana “sushi” rolls, are fun and easy for kids to make; a number of the recipes are great starting points for parents who want to cook with their children and build adventurous eating habits. Being conscious of dietary restrictions, Mowry offers alternatives for vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals.
VERDICT Mowry describes this latest as a “cooking companion”; cooks who are establishing their own households will find it particularly helpful. Mowry adds an encouraging, relatable voice to the subject area and has an established audience of readers and viewers.
