9780062325181: Cooking with Amar'e: 100 Easy Recipes for Pros and Rookies in the Kitchen

An information-packed cooking guide filled with tempting recipes, co-written by New York Knicks’ power forward Amar’e Stoudemire, and his charismatic, world-class chef Maxcel Hardy.

New York Knicks captain Amar’e Stoudemire may be on fire when he’s on the court, but the nearly seven-foot-tall hoops star didn’t know the first thing about lighting a fire. When his personal chef Maxcel Hardy began giving him informal cooking lessons, the six-time NBA All-Star learned to become a comfortable, experienced cook able to whip up tasty, healthy dishes for his family.

Cooking with Amar’e is an engaging chronicle of their informal sessions—a unique, collaborative cookbook featuring stories, recipes, tips, advice, and instructions on cooking techniques, equipment, shopping, party planning, and preparation for home cooks of all levels. Comprehensive and convenient, it allows beginners and practiced cooks to hone their kitchen skills and master dishes at their own pace.

Here are more than 100 healthy recipes the whole family can enjoy, that blend French, Southern, Asian, and Caribbean traditions and flavors, and use ingredients from the local grocery store. In addition to these delicious dishes—some created by Hardy for his many celebrity clients and others based on the traditional Southern dishes both men enjoyed growing up—this straightforward guide is filled with savory personal anecdotes, from humorous stories of working together as Amar’e learned to cook, to Amar’e and Maxcel’s personal reminiscences.

Designed in an easy-to-follow and engaging format, illustrated with 75-100 full color photos, this practical and fun cookbook is sure to become a trusted favorite.

From the Back Cover:

An All-Star on the court and in the kitchen

New York Knicks power forward Amar'e Stoudemire receives loud cheers from excited fans when he's on the court, and he wanted to receive those same cheers when he's in the kitchen at home cooking for his family. After one particularly unsuccessful day of grilling for his kids, the frustrated hoops star called his personal chef, Maxcel Hardy III, who tried his best to explain some of the finer points of cooking on a charcoal grill.

The dinner was not a hit with his family, but it was important milestone for Amar'e. Though his cooking experience up until then had been more limited to the basics, the popular pro ball player resolved to learn to cook crowd-pleasing, healthy meals for his family. And he wanted Chef Max to teach him.

Cooking with Amar'e expands upon the in-home cooking lessons that began to take shape as Chef Max guided Amar'e through basic kitchen skills and techniques, ultimately imbuing him with enough know-how to host a dinner party for family and friends—and brag that he'd cooked the meal himself.

An engaging chronicle of their seasons, Cooking with Amar'e features stories and more than 100 recipes, tips, and instructions on cooking techniques and preparation for home cooks at all levels. With delicious and easy-to-replicate meals, it allows beginners and practiced cooks to hone their kitchen skills and master dishes at their own pace. Amar'e proves that dads everywhere can be superstars in the kitchen.
