When I hear of celebrity moms with cookbooks it always sounds so contradictory. I mean, they are celebrities! Are you really trying to tell me that they cook? That they know how to cook? Do they even have time with the fancy restaurants and private chefs? Do they even eat?
Then I remember that they are also moms, and moms want people to be well-fed, it’s in their DNA. Eat and eat well is a mom’s motto. Moms are like alchemists that are blessed with the ability to turn water into stew and can make fish absolutely swim in lemon butter sauce. Some are well-traveled and bring back secret ingredients from far away lands. The enlightened ones spread the word: Teach a man how to cook and he will never go hungry. Here’s our list of celebrity moms with cookbooks that are sure to keep you, and your family, fed for a lifetime.
Chrissy is a sharer. From plastic surgery updates, to political opinions, to personal hardships. So it’s not surprising that she shares what she eats, but what is surprising is how well the girl eats! And by well we don’t mean healthy, we mean hearty and tasty. Teigen’s third cookbook, Cravings: All Together: Recipes to Love is full of comfort foods inspired by the 2020 lockdown and is filled with mouthwatering recipes the whole family will love.
For 10 years, singer Kelis Rogers traveled the world singing about milkshakes, so we’re not surprised she came back with enough recipes to fill a cookbook! But it wasn’t only her travels that inspired My Life on a Plate. The Puerto Rican and Jamaican mom of two credits a stint at the famous Le Cordon Bleu culinary school with giving her the confidence to share some of the recipes she grew up with like Pernil (pork shoulder), Arroz con Gandules (peas), and Malay Curry Chicken.
At 80 years old, Martha has seen it all, cooked it all, and eaten it all. Seriously, the woman is a time-defying, wildly successful one-person orchestra, and with over 25,000 recipes (yup, it’s on her website), you can imagine that she would need a lot of books to lay them out. Are you planning a wedding menu? Martha has a book for that! Want some one-pot meals? Martha has a book for that! So where do you start? Well, you can always start with her most recent, and 99th cookbook, Fruit Desserts.
While you were keeping up with the Kardashians you may have missed that the matriarch of the Kardashian-Jenner clan, mom Kris, just happened to release a cookbook back in 2014. With nearly 70 favorite family recipes to choose from, it almost doesn’t matter what the dishes taste like… if it’s good enough for the K-J’s, it’s good enough for us!
One of her biggest hits is about marmalade so right there, we should have known that Patti’s sweet voice was hiding an even sweeter tooth. Even though she has had several great cookbooks over the years, it’s Desserts LaBelle: Soulful Sweets to Sing About, that may be her biggest winner! The proof is in the sweet potato pie, baby. Madame LaBelle sells over 36,000 of her famous pies a day, according to Food and Wine!
With titles like It’s All Good, It’s All Easy and The Clean Plate, the message is clear: it’s easy to make healthy food tasty. If anyone can make kale taste like steak, it’s Gwenyth. You really can’t go wrong with any of her four New York Times–bestselling cookbooks but our favorite is probably It’s All Good.
Ayesha Curry is one busy woman! As the owner of a restaurant and host of a cooking show on the Food Network, it makes sense that the mama of three created a cookbook for moms with lots to do and no time to do it. Peep her cookbook, The Full Plate, if you can relate!
Some chefs are all about their “genius” and get offended if you want two slices of tomatoes instead of three in their “masterpiece” du jour. Not Jessica. She cooks for the people because she cares for the people. She cooks to solve your problems. Does your kid refuse to eat healthily? She wrote Deceptively Delicious just for you. Are you frozen solid at the thought of cooking? The Can’t Cookbook is for you. Do you eat healthy foods or junk according to the emotions of the moment? Check out Food Swings. Jessica Seinfeld’s cookbooks really are a mood.
