by Time Magazine, December 20, 2016 “It’s been a tough couple of years for me,” says Tanya, who is a food and beverage chef at The Cookbook in Seattle.
“I’m living with chronic illness, and my health has been deteriorating.”
She’s not the only one who feels the pain.
Tanya and her husband, Chris, who works in the culinary industry in Seattle, had just purchased a house in the suburbs and were about to move into it.
After several months of planning, Tanya began preparing their own meals.
“After we purchased the house, we started to do a lot of planning,” she says.
“We wanted to know how we were going to eat and where we were planning to go to eat.”
So Tanya decided to put her ideas to the test.
“It was really hard to find out what was good to eat,” she recalls.
“Most people are going to say, ‘Well, if you’ve got a good chicken or pork, you should try it.’
But we’re not really good at that.
We’re just good at cooking.
We really love cooking.
And I was trying to figure out, if we can find something good to cook for myself, that’s what I want to do.”
And, she adds, “I was always interested in trying different foods.
It was a good way to get a taste of things I’d never tried before.”
She was also working on a cookbook, The Cookery Book, which she plans to publish next year.
But the two women were still not entirely sure what recipes they wanted to share with their readers.
“That’s what’s really hard,” Tanya says.
They wanted to make sure that they weren’t just cooking up dishes to share, but to get to know their audience, and to give people an idea of what they can cook.
They also wanted to give the cookbooks a new identity.
So Tasha, who’s also an author, has decided to launch a new cookbook for all readers, The Book of Cooks.
She hopes that the book will be able to appeal to a wider audience, who may not have read cookbooks before.
“People may have read some of the cookbook authors before, but I think a lot are starting to read this new cookbooks, and that’s a great thing,” she adds.
“Because the cookery books have a lot more to offer.
There’s recipes, and there’s cooking tips, and I think that’s going to be really helpful for people who haven’t read cookbook before.”
And for those who do read cook books before, she says, it’s important to be aware that it’s not just the cook books that are valuable.
“For me, it was really important to create something that was not just a cook book,” she notes.
“There’s this idea of cookbooks being just like food, and it’s very, very wrong.”
Tanya’s new cook book is about food in all its flavors, from the most traditional to the newest.
“When I look at food, I’m looking for flavors that I can taste,” she explains.
“And it’s hard to get there because the world doesn’t have enough taste.
And we’re very much a palate that is very, a very small group of people, but we have the ability to taste different things.
So we really want to bring that back into food.”
And Tanya thinks the new cook books can help people understand how to cook their own dishes.
“One of the most important things I wanted to bring into the kitchen was the idea that the whole family can enjoy each other’s meals,” she suggests.
“If you don’t cook, then you can eat, and you can have fun with your food.
So I wanted the book to have that flavor.”
And it’s this combination of the family-friendly approach and the fun-loving approach that Tanya hopes to bring to her new cookery book.
“My hope is that people can understand that the kitchen is just as much a family as the kitchen,” she emphasizes.
“You can have family dinners, you can go to a barbecue or a barbecue and go to dinner with your family.”
She also hopes that, with her book, she’ll be able get people thinking about food as something that can be shared.
“What can we do to share this food, because there’s not a lot out there to share?
So I think this book will help people figure that out,” she concludes.
“The Cookbook is a new way to celebrate food.”
The book features recipes from around the world and includes a chapter on the culinary arts.
It also includes tips on how to make your own delicious foods.
“As much as I like the food that I’m cooking, I want more people to be able make their own,” she offers.
“With the cook book, I hope people will be inspired to take
