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

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.

Being a fan of Cristina's "Big Bowl of Love" show on OWN, I knew I had to get my hands on her book. Not only are the recipes are easy to follow ... they are also tasty and quick to prepare! I've finally found my go-to cookbook for a delicious and nutritious meal for any day of the week! :)

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!
