As a longtime fan of Antoni Porowski’s uplifting foodie advice on the Queer Eye television series, I knew right away that this cookbook would be filled with non-overwhelming, delicious and healthy recipes intended to bring us out of our dinner-ruts. After browsing through the recipes, I found myself getting excited about making dinner tonight. I will be trying the Crispy Pork and Egg Rice Bowl, since, to my glee, I have all the ingredients in my kitchen. The recipe practically shouts ‘comfort food’ – a bowl of rice in a hot, savory broth, topped with slices of breaded and fried pork cutlet that’s been smothered in fluffy eggs. If a hug could be food, this is what it would look like.
This book is the perfect gift for a novice cook who’s eager to learn. I can think of no better way to learn that food is love – the recipes and advice Antoni’s gathered into this cookbook will inspire you to cook better meals for yourself, your family, your friends. As a bonus, many of the recipes double as party food – just divide into smaller portions and viola! Appetizers to impress.
Treat yourself well. Let Antoni’s advice and attitude into your kitchen. You’ll be a happier person for it.
My thanks to author Antoni Porowski, Mariner Books, and NetGalley for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
