The Full Plate: Flavor-Filled, Easy Recipes for Families with No Time and a Lot to Do by Ayesha Curry ($15.00)
Chef, restauranteur, and lifestyle guru, Ayesha Curry knows what it’s like to live a busy life. Curry is well known as a mother of three and wife of Golden State Warriors star, Stephen Curry. Her latest cookbook is for those who want a hearty, healthy, and delicious meal without spending too much time worrying about techniques or hard-to-find ingredients. Inspired by her Jamaican roots, Southern upbringing, and an overall passion for good food, Curry includes recipes for meals like Caribbean Lobster Rolls, Hot Honey Chicken Sandwiches, and Poached Halibut with Champagne Beurre Blanc. Great for busy people who still want to eat well.
When I began writing my first cookbook, The Seasoned Life, life was so different. I was a mom of two girls, I’d truly just begun my career, and I was 26
I was never sleepy, never had too much to do, and always had the flexibility to cook whatever I wanted, whenever I wanted, without time constraints.
Meal time to us these days definitely still looks like pouring a generous glass of wine while I cook, but the logistics are slightly different. I mean, we blinked and suddenly there were three children! That’s six legs, six arms, three heads, sixty fingers and toes (by the grace of God), and three very different personalities (who Stephen and I both love equally).
I also began my journey as an entrepreneur, started my business Sweet July, and opened four International Smoke restaurant locations in two years!
In the midst of all of that, I still have this desire to nurture my family through food. That precious time together is not something I ever want to fall to the bottom of life’s to-do list. But these days, I need recipes that are still full of life and flavor but take a fraction of the time to make. I’ve tried to give that to you.
