Overview

“Cristina is probably the best cook I've ever met, other than Maya Angelou and my own mother. She's cooked three Christmas dinners for 80 people, and I was sitting at the table for all of them.” -Oprah Winfrey
 
For New York Times best-selling author Cristina Ferrare, “family, cooking, food, and bringing people together [are] a passion.” That same irrepressible enthusiasm infuses A Big Bowl of Love, Ferrare's homey collection of more than 150 recipes for everyday meals and celebrations. Each dish has been tested, enjoyed, and cherished by Cristina's family and friends, as well as by viewers of Cooking with Cristina--a series of cooking segments that aired on the OWN network (Oprah Winfrey Network).
Cristina's natural warmth, generosity, and creativity is preserved in every bite of these dishes--and this busy professional, wife, and mother shows how to shop, set up a pantry, and use cook once, eat twice recipes to make preparing and enjoying meals easy and fun.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Oprah asserts that Cristina Ferrare is one of three best cooks she has ever encountered. (The other two are Maya Angelou and Winfrey's own mother.) Even without that impressive accolade, this cookbook by the vibrant television personality earns our attention. Like the dishes that Ferrare prepares on Oprah, the 150+ recipes in this new Sterling cookbook combine simplicity, healthfulness, and variety. Pasta, salads, sandwiches, snacks, and much, much more.

Library Journal
Rather than sending cooks to the market for exotic ingredients, Ferrare (Cristina Ferrare's Family Entertaining) relies on items that many already have on hand, in her latest book, named after her cooking show on the Oprah Winfrey Network. Tuscan Bread Soup, for example, calls for chicken stock, canned crushed tomatoes, and day-old bread. Other recipes include Baked Sweet Potato Fries and Chocolate Valentine from the Heart (a delicious, rich chocolate cake, perfectly topped with pecans). Expect demand.

Recipe

ROASTED CHICKEN WRAPS WITH BLACK BEAN SALSA, ARUGULA, AND GUACAMOLE

6 SERVINGS


This chicken wrap is another one of those reasons I always have a roasted chicken on hand in my refrigerator.

I start my meal by serving a bowl of soup, tortilla soup is perfect, and then serve these wraps filled to the brim for lunch or dinner.I often bring these wraps for lunch on a plane when I’m traveling, and they worked well as school lunches for the kids.

2 to 3 tablespoons Black Bean Salsa (page 276)
2 tablespoons Guacamole (page 19)
6 flour or whole wheat tortillas
2 roasted chicken breasts, diced
4–5 cups arugula leaves

Keep the black bean salsa and guacamole in the refrigerator until you’re ready to assemble the wraps. Preheat the oven to 325°F.
Wrap the tortillas in foil, and heat for 15 minutes. Turn off the oven, but leave the tortillas in the oven to keep them warm until you’re ready to use them.
To assemble each wrap, place 1 tortilla on a warm plate. Keep the remaining tortillas covered. Spread 2 tablespoons guacamole over the entire tortilla. Add ¼ cup of chicken to the bottom third of the tortilla. Place 3 tablespoons bean salsa and 6 to 10 leaves of arugula on top. Roll the tortilla over once, and fold the sides in tightly. Fold into a burrito shape. With the seam side down, place on a cutting board and cut with a sharp knife on the diagonal.
Serve with a generous dollop of guacamole, sour cream, and salsa

    Such an amazing cookbook!

    I am by no means an expert cook - I enjoy to cook but am not so great. I am a big fan of Cristina's show on OWN, and was so excited to pick up her cookbook. This is my new favorite cookbook! All of Cristina's recipes are so delicious, healthy and the food photography is gorgeous. Trust me, this is a great book for all aspiring (and expert!) chefs out there!
