|Cookin' for Trouble makes us wanna play with our food.|
We had a chance to speak briefly with Nadia G. about her show, her new book and how she likes to stay bitchin'.
New Times: You have your 2008 Bitchin' Kitchen Cookbook, and now a new book called Nadia G.'s Bitchin' Kitchen: Cooking for Trouble. What inspired this second book?
Nadia G.: Well in terms of the inspiration, as the old saying goes "it takes a village," and with this new cookbook, I was inspired by the women in my family. These are the people who have been cooks all their lives and they have many recipes to share. In my own bitchin' community we held a contest to find the five most bitchin' recipes and the winners' ones are shared in the cookbook. For this new book, we had a bigger budget, so we got to do more then just Nadia G. looking hot in front of a background. (Laughs) We were actually able to flesh out the scene. It's very rich in terms of photography.
