This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to Lubna B. and Vivi G. who won the books!
Chef Nisa Burns will be in Austin this week to promote her latest book, Kitchenability 101: The College Student’s Guide to Easy, Healthy, and Delicious Food, where she provides the confidence and motivation for college students to expand their abilities, so they can cook for themselves and their friends. The book offers shopping plans, supply lists, budgeting, skills and recipes for cooking in college spaces including dorm rooms, apartments and houses.
Nisa's goal is to show college students how to become best friends with their kitchens in order to feed themselves for life, making cooking easy and natural, rather than intimidating and overwhelming. In Kitchenability 101, she shows students healthy, accessible alternatives to the cafeteria or drive-thru lane. College students will learn that cooking a quick dinner can be just as easy as heating up a processed meal in the microwave.
As you cultivate confidence in the kitchen, you’ll feel motivated to create foods that fit your lifestyle, instead of just eating whatever is fast and available. Kitchenability is about making awesome foods that nourish and strengthen your mind and body so you can succeed in college and beyond.Nisa will make three stops in Austin for cooking demos and book signings:
