Cook It, Eat It, Live It Reviews

by Jo Kenny

My debut cookbook Cook It, Eat It, Live It launched 8th April 2022 and oh wow, what an exciting time it has been!

I wanted this book to be a really personal collection of recipes and they are just that: delicious every day meals that all make regular appearances at my own dining table. I don’t do boring dinners – ever! I have poured my heart into this book with stories and personal thoughts on life and food punctuating the recipes. It has been a real labour of love and and something that I have worked on for years before its release. And so, the moment where it is finally making it’s way through people’s letterboxes is very (wonderfully!) surreal.

Of course, once your work is released into the wild what follows is the nerve wracking moments of awaiting its reception. I am so delighted to say that Cook It, Eat It, Live It has received wonderful reviews. Here’s what people are saying:
