Chef Toya Boudy releases cookbook, ‘Cook Like a New Orleanian,’ hosts book signing, Aug. 5 Featured

Written by  IntheNOLA.com
After having competed on the big screen on the Food Network’s “Next Food Network Star” and winning Hallmark’s Best Home Cook competition, local chef Toya Boudy has released her first cookbook entitled Cook Like a New Orleanian.
 
But this isn’t your typical cookbook…Chef Toya has made Cook Like a New Orleanian interactive, a first for a New Orleans chef. “This cookbook allows you to view the recipes all while watching a video tutorial of how to make the dish. In addition, there are step-by-step photo directions and enhanced images with pop up information boxes when you tap the photos to give the reader a more in-depth view into the process,” Chef Toya explained. “I’ve picked 20 classic recipes that walk you through the food journey and life of a New Orleanian, including gumbo, jambalaya, and oyster po-boys just to name a few.”
Transitioning from TV star to author has simply been another step on her journey for Chef Toya. “From being on the ‘Next Food Network Star,’ I was able to gain great exposure and expand my reach nationally. I also learned that I was created to entertain and inspire and that spirit continues to show through in my cookbook.”

Chef Toya and Cook Like a New Orleanian will be at the Southern Food & Beverage Museum (1504 Oretha Castly Haley Blvd.) on Saturday, Aug. 5 from 3:30pm-5:30pm where she will perform a cooking demo, sign hard copes of her book, and have attendees participate in a taste testing.
 
Chef Toya added, “My love for food comes from my parents, where everything was centered around a good meal, so the transition to becoming a chef came naturally to me. One could say that this profession chose me.”
 
She concluded, “I want to continue sharing, learning, winning and inspiring. I plan to seize every open door that I see fit to tackle and I will encourage others to follow their dreams as well. I want to sow so many good things into the people of my city.”
