BEND, OR -- Kix Brooks, of country music’s Brooks and Dunn, is taking his talents to the kitchen. Brooks has hired Bend resident Donna Britt to oversee the production of a cookbook called “Cookin’ It with Kix.”
Britt is a cookbook producer, in her own right. She tells KBND News, “It’s about food and life and celebrating with friends and family. Kix is from Louisiana, so that food culture in that part of the south is very festive and very much about being with friends and family.” The book will include barbecuing, tailgating, big spreads, beverages and desserts. “Then there’s also a basics chapter on how to do some basic things,” Britt says. “How do you make rice that’s awesome every time? And what kind of equipment do you need if you’re going to a tailgate party?”
Britt produced Brooks’ radio show “American Country Countdown” for 8 years. There will be 110 recipes in “Cookin’ It With Kix.” Local photographer Tambi Lane
is capturing each finished dish on film.
The book will be published August 30th.
