The long-awaited debut cookbook from passionate home chef, Caroline Somers, shares boldly flavored food representing her abundant California lifestyle and global travels, wrapped in the foundation of her Italian lineage. This is the food you crave. Now we know why her husband resoundingly says, "DAMN!" after every taste. SERVED contains over 50 recipes, each with captivating images that make you want to stick your finger through the page and have a taste. You will feel Caroline's zest reflected in each dish, plus enjoy detailed instructions to master her applauded creations for your own family.

It's sticky, sweet Thai chicken wings and fresh herbs peeking out of wrapped spring rolls. It's gooey grilled cheese dunked in creamy roasted tomato soup. It's crispy, shredded carnitas with a bright pop of mango salsa. It's lightly charred skirt steak with spicy peanut sauce. It's a torn hunk of grilled baguette smooshed in the garlicky broth of sweet, steamed cockles. It's a stracciatella cheese-pull enveloped in a cloud of sweet tomato sauce that will have you grinning like a kid. It's the palate dance after a bite of bok choy basking in creamy coconut curry with a blast of fresh lime. It's simmered Bolognese with a heritage that tastes centuries in the making. It's the crunch of a tableside Caesar with a zing of cracked pepper and a crouton that will make you cry. It's a slow braised short rib with a ridiculous pile of crispy fried ginger, chilies and herbs that will literally drop jaws. SERVED contains over 50 recipes, each with captivating images that make you want to stick your finger through the page and have a taste. You will feel Caroline's zest reflected in each dish, plus enjoy detailed instructions to master her applauded creations for your own family.

DAMN! It's great! I have been a fan of Caroline and her husband Bruce for many years, beginning with reading Suzanne Somers' books. I have absolutely loved how Caroline has cultivated her love for cooking and family, which for me, also goes hand in hand. I have watched many of Caroline's cooking demonstrations on Instagram and have made many of her recipes, all of which I make on "repeat" because they are that good! I know many of her fans were pushing her for a cookbook, so this seemed like a natural next step for her. I also love that Caroline connects so deeply to her Italian roots. I am also Italian and so absolutely LOVE all of her simple, decadent recipes. Let me say that the cookbook is not only filled with wonderful recipes, but is visually gorgeous. I believe Bruce took most of the photos.They showcase the beauty of the food and the finished product. I will also add that the first few pages of her introduction touched me deeply. This could have been written by me. Cooking for my family is also my love language. Sitting at the table for hours is how I grew up. Food was love in our family and it is clear Caroline feels the same. I also purchased this cookbook for a family member who is also enjoying it as well as really resonated with the introduction. Caroline, thank you for creating such a beautiful book and I look forward to many more cooking demonstrations. I love watching you cook for your family. Your daughters are beautiful, as are you. Your new little puppy is precious, and Bruce is awesome. You can see and feel the love you all have for one another. As Bruce would say: "DAMN", you won't be disappointed with this purchase!
