In Jennie's Kitchen

In jennie's kitchen review

Jennifer Perillo is bringing her love of scratch cooking to you with her new book Homemade with Love. I joined a few editor friends in Jennifer’s Brooklyn home for a launch party featuring a few of the recipes from her book.

The book tells the story of how Jennifer discovered cooking as a child. She started simple and has basically kept is simple over the years. The idea is that the best ingredients, plus a little TLC and you can give your family meals to feed their bellies and hearts. You can read our review of the book here.

I’m a huge fan of the family meal. We cook at home 4-5 nights a week and I am always on the hunt for new dishes to give the family and a few fancy things to share when I entertain. This book is brimming with recipe inspiration.

What a delicious way to celebrate the success of a friend. My select dish from the event is this fennel delight.

While I ate far too much, every bite was worth it. Jennie knows how to feed and nourish her family and friends and this rings true in her writing.

And I also want to thank the fine folks at KitchenAid and Glad for sending Jennie on her book tour. It’s not easy to write a book, and it's even harder to write a book that makes you want to shop with care, slow down and really enjoy time in the kitchen. Thank you Jennie for this book and the reminders.
