Cat Cora has always been one of my favorite Iron Chefs, so when I saw that she was writing a book, I decided I needed to review it.
This book, Cooking as Fas as I Can, presents her in the same way she is on television...totally honest, and keeping our attention. She takes the reader back to her roots in Jackson, Mississippi where she first began to learn to cook. This background allowed her to build her repertoire of Greek and Southern cooking.
This book is more than her cooking background, however. It takes us into her life where she was sexually abused to today where she has to come face-to-face with her life as a lesbian and her life in the South.
Those who pick up this book will discover how to hold on to dreams, in spite of what the past may have presented.
I was given this book by NetGalley and Scribners in exchange for my honest review.
