Loukoumi's Celebrity Cookbook with Great Kid's Recipes

April 5th, 2012 · No Comments · Amazon

Loukoumi was a little lamb who was supposed to go to America with her family but ends up on the wrong plane, the wrong train, and the wrong boat (I feel for you, Loukoumi). As as result, she ends up having all kinds of adventures in Greece, France, Italy and Morocco.

So starts a children’s book series by Nick Katsoris that have become a favorite among preschool kids and celebrities alike.

There have been three Loukoumi books since that first one, where Loukoumi tries to figure out what she wants to be when she grows up, learns the value of doing good deeds, and learns that great gifts don’t necessarily have to cost a lot of money.

With her fifth book, Loukoumi’s Celebrity Cookbook, a ton of A-list and B-list celebrities contribute their favorite recipes from food they ate in their childhood. Just a sample of the foods and celebrities included:

Rachael Ray’s French Toast Cups with Fresh Fruit, Oprah Winfrey’s Corn Fritters, Ellen DeGeneres’ Vegan Sliders, Beyonce’s Easy Guacamole with Corn Chip Scoops, Betty White s Chicken Wings, Miranda Cosgrove’s Spaghetti Tacos, Matt Lauer’s Beanie Weenie Stew, Mario Lopez’s Chicken Enchiladas, Marlo Thomas’ Corn Pudding, and Eli Manning’s Lace Cookies plus recipes from Ernie Anastos, Jennifer Aniston, John Aniston, Alexis Christoforous, Katie Couric, Marcia Cross, Paula Deen, Frank Dicopoulos, Celine Dion, Olympia Dukakis, Mike Emanuel, Gloria Gaynor, Neil Patrick Harris, Florence Henderson, David Henrie, Faith Hill, Carrie Ann Inaba, Melina Kanakaredes, Nicole Kidman, Miranda Lambert, Christian Jules Le Blanc, Jay Leno, Susan Lucci, Evan Lysacek, Bailee Madison, Gilles Marini, Constantine Maroulis, Bridgit Mendler, Nancy O’Dell, Amy Poehler, Al Roker, Hillary Scott, The Scotto Family, Doc Shaw, Sherri Shepherd, Brenda Song, Dylan & Cole Sprouse, George Stephanopoulos, Taylor Swift, Tiffany Thornton, Justin Timberlake, Mark Wahlberg, Reese Witherspoon.

Loukoumi s Celebrity Cookbook also invites children ages 4 to 12 to submit their favorite childhood recipe to Loukoumi’s Secret Ingredient Recipe Contest from November 1, 2011, through March 1, 2012, to win a chance to cook that recipe with celebrity chef Cat Cora. The children will be asked to complete the statement: (Recipe Name) is my favorite childhood recipe because… (in 10 words or less).
