Blog Tour - Real Food, Real Kitchens: New York Cookbook


About the book: After an award-winning career in television and magazines, Craig Chapman is pursuing his passion: telling the real stories of real food and the people and cultures that bring a dish to life. Based on his popular Create TV series, these recipes take you behind the scenes and into the kitchens of chefs who are using food to change the world.

My review: I've never seen Craig Chapman's Real Food, Real Kitchens show, but after checking out this cookbook, I want to! Craig Chapman divided the city of New York up into sections. Then he went out into each section and took pictures, and found people that had a recipe and a story to tell. For me, this cookbook is not really about the recipes, although they are awesome too. The real thing that I loved about this cookbook is the stories about the people who make the recipes and where the recipes come from. That makes this book really human. I like that!  

I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

About the author: Craig Chapman published his first magazine at the age of 15, which was a handwritten, photocopied punk rock fanzine. He moved to New York after college and worked as a television and film Production Manager at Nickelodeon, MTV, VH1, Time Inc., and more. He also took time to work as a magazine Editor developing an MTV Magazine for Hearst, as a Fashion and Beauty Editor at InTouch Weekly during their inaugural year, and as a Lifestyle Editor for Seventeen.
Chapman owns OEG Media LLC which creates unscripted television, film, and multi-platform digital projects that highlight the lifestyle, drama, comedy, and challenges of real life. He is also the Founder and Producer of the national brand Real Food Real Kitchens which includes a TV series, yearly magazine, and daily web site. Real Food Real Kitchens is all about ‘Family, Food, Culture and History’; telling the story of a dish and the family and culture that bring it to life.
