Cooking with Amar'e

100 Easy Recipes for Pros and Rookies in the Kitchen

About the Book

An information-packed cooking guide filled with tempting recipes, co-written by New York Knicks’ power forward Amar’e Stoudemire, and his charismatic, world-class chef Maxcel Hardy.

New York Knicks captain Amar’e Stoudemire may be on fire when he’s on the court, but the nearly seven-foot-tall hoops star didn’t know the first thing about lighting a fire. When his personal chef Maxcel Hardy began giving him informal cooking lessons, the six-time NBA All-Star learned to become a comfortable, experienced cook able to whip up tasty, healthy dishes for his family.

Cooking with Amar’e is an engaging chronicle of their informal sessions—a unique, collaborative cookbook featuring stories, recipes, tips, advice, and instructions on cooking techniques, equipment, shopping, party planning, and preparation for home cooks of all levels. Comprehensive and convenient, it allows beginners and practiced cooks to hone their kitchen skills and master dishes at their own pace.

Here are more than 100 healthy recipes the whole family can enjoy, that blend French, Southern, Asian, and Caribbean traditions and flavors, and use ingredients from the local grocery store. In addition to these delicious dishes—some created by Hardy for his many celebrity clients and others based on the traditional Southern dishes both men enjoyed growing up—this straightforward guide is filled with savory personal anecdotes, from humorous stories of working together as Amar’e learned to cook, to Amar’e and Maxcel’s personal reminiscences.

Designed in an easy-to-follow and engaging format, illustrated with 75-100 full color photos, this practical and fun cookbook is sure to become a trusted favorite.
