Ayesha Curry, cookbook author, TV personality, and entrepreneur has added a second cookbook to her portfolio. “The Full Plate,” the follow-up to her beloved debut, “The Seasoned Life,” shares how she cooks for her family. The 100 recipes included in the book are specifically designed to be on the table in less than an hour, geared toward busy families who still aim to eat healthfully.
In [her] new cookbook, [Curry] keeps prep time to a minimum — no elaborate techniques, just what's needed to make a great meal — and fret time even shorter, assuring readers not to worry if they don’t have an ingredient. Instead, she encourages them to have fun, make substitutions, and rediscover their creativity."
Food personality and restaurateur Ayesha Curry makes an expert banana fritter and she flavors most of her desserts with homemade vanilla extract, an homage to one of her kitchen heroes Ina Garten. You can find the recipe for that vanilla extract and more family-friendly recipes, including plenty of dinners that cook on sheet pans, in The Full Plate, her second book that is engineered for busy cooks.
