The Full Plate: Flavor-Filled, Easy Recipes for Families with No Time and a Lot to Do

Ayesha Curry. Voracious, $30 (256p) ISBN 978-0-316-49617-9
Curry (The Seasoned Life), a TV cooking personality and wife of NBA superstar Stephen Curry, presents a winning collection of dishes that often come together in less than half an hour, designed for busy families. Her pantry includes convenience items deployed in novel ways, such as pancake mix used as a batter for coconut shrimp and refrigerated tubes of biscuit dough deployed for maple-glazed bacon doughnuts. The fusions of global seasonings and jarred sauces in such dishes as curried crab with okra; her childhood-staple red pea soup “loaded with handmade rolled-flour dumplings... called ‘spinners’ ”; and her own take on the spicy-sweet takeout standby, “General Ayesha’s Honey Chicken” reflect her upbringing by parents of Jamaican-Chinese, African-American, and Polish descent. This being a celebrity cookbook, readers are treated to photos of Curry as a contented mom in a stylish home setting. They also will enjoy the way this approachable and appealing recipe collection caters to wide variety of tastes. Agent: Stacey Glick, Dystel, Goderich & Bourret. (Sept.)
