Press Release – “Cooking With Sin” the book

Cooking With Sin

Great Recipes Dipped in Alcohol and Wrapped in a Wonderful Story!

A Whole New Kind of Cookbook!

Creative story telling with an angle that will leave your mouth watering!

“Cooking with sin, are we?” Carla Johnson’s Mennonite grandmother scolded when she caught Johnson’s mother “red-wine handed” pouring red wine into her pan of chicken cacciatore. That moment locked into Johnson’s memory and led her to start a blog where she shared her story-recipe. Several others joined in.

People from all walks of life, from professional chefs to grandmothers, share personal stories and the recipes woven through them. Each recipe has alcohol in it and was tested & beautifully photographed. Here is a sample:

• “Stuck on Reduction” Madeira Caramel and Watermelon Salad
• “Suitcase and a Dream” Dark Stout Chocolate Cake
• “Working Past Midnight” French Toast
• “Nightmare Kitchen” Chicken and Sun-dried Tomatoes
• Milk and Cookies for the “Real” Santa

“Cooking With Sin”is a beautiful and stylish book filled with a passion for food and the human connection. It is a chance to feed our bodies and souls and have a little fun along the way.
