March 28, 2008 (Raleigh, NC) – With all of the blending, simmering and boiling in the kitchen, it is no wonder passion can be found lurking around the fridge or beyond the counter. Blondee, a larger than life personality and successful chef, looks to bring Hollywood style entertaining to kitchens everywhere with the launch of her first cookbook “Glamour in the Kitchen,” which is available exclusively at Lulu.com. Blondee shows anyone how to transform every meal into a romantic event by throwing out the rules, focusing on your strengths and laughing from your soul to generate sparks in the kitchen.
“The world of chandeliers and caviar can be yours too! Everyone can live richly by combining glamour and humor for the perfect recipe,” said Blondee. “Take out your best linens and china, dress to impress, light the candles and cook with flair – even on a Tuesday night.”
With an emphasis on sophisticated and entertaining cuisine, "Glamour in the Kitchen" (http://www.lulu.com/content/2073592) provides witty commentary and delicious recipes segmented into categories including elegant, romantic, simple and bodacious fare. Focusing on fabulous, recipes include the “Blondee Martini” which encourages a jeweled garnish of “diamonds” or rock candy; “Zany Zesty Coleslaw” that suggests spending the same amount of time at your local farmers market looking for amazing ingredients as you would to find the perfect lip color; and “Plump & Peachy Cobbler” that urges all women to embrace whatever figure size they may be.
“Glamour in the Kitchen” is the first in a series of four cookbooks that will be published on Lulu.com in 2009. Additional titles will include: “Glamour in the Bedroom” with a focus on romantic fare for the boudoir; “Glamour in the Garden” that incorporates fresh produce from your garden; and “Glamour at the Gym” with a focus on healthy cuisine.
“This project was completed with a supportive group of family and friends who believe in my talent and vision. With little funding, we were looking for a publishing solution that produced vibrant and exquisite books, and offered a platform to sell my final product to the world.” said Blondee. “Lulu and Blondee are a perfect match.”
Over 50 years old and fabulous, Blondee brings 25 years of glamour and humor from the kitchen to her brand and cookbook series. Blondee also travels the U.S. as a restaurant critic for Web sites like Boomeropia.com, and has also been featured on numerous broadcast cooking segments.
The launch of the cookbook series also marks the introduction of the Blondee Lifestyle brand. In addition to the cookbook series, Blondee will be creating a line of products including signature sauces, jewelry, purses, scarves, jeweled pillows and table-top décor to round out the brand.
