“Cook It, Spill It, Throw It is an immersive, one-of-a-kind experience in a world we can’t escape (but let’s face it, we don’t want to!).” —from the foreword by Andy Cohen
Trends come and go, but watching rich women drink and catfight is forever. Which is why after more than a decade of airing, the Real Housewives phenomenon continues to reign supreme in the pop culture stratosphere. Week after week, season after season, loyal fans watch the thrilling drama—the backstabbing, the gossiping, the screaming, the table flipping, the wine tossing—unfold.
Cook It, Spill It, Throw It is a cookbook created specifically for Housewives fans. Chef Stuart O’Keeffe and comedian Amy Phillips—long-time devotees themselves—have dreamed up an inviting menu served with a side of delicious snark.
Inspired by the series and its stars, the dishes and drinks evoke familiar moments of chaos from the franchise. Whether you’re looking to make Ponytail Pulled Pork, or you want to comfort a friend in the Caicos with Eggs a Lu’Francais, there’s a meal for you—and there are definitely plenty of drinks (including Henny-thing Can Happen and the classic Singer Stinger Sipper).
Featuring gorgeous original photography and equally gorgeous recipes, Cook It, Spill It, Throw It is the must-have cookbook and companion for every Housewives addict.
