Kris Jenner is known to most people as the annoying mom of Kim Kardashian and the nagging ex-wife of Bruce Jenner, but she’s also a whiz in the kitchen.
In her new cookbook, In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites, Kris shares 70 of her favorite recipes, including roasted butternut squash soup and pan-roasted salmon with asparagus and green olive tapenade.
Before she became TV’s most famous mom-ager, Jenner spent most of her adulthood as a dutiful housewife raising six children. On “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” video flashbacks show Kris cooking in the kitchen and hosting elaborate dinner parties.
Jenner, who also wrote Kris Jenner . . . And All Things Kardashian, said despite her fame, fortune and hectic schedule, cooking is still one of her favorite pastimes.
“Today, cooking — or rather preparing meals in my kitchen — is one of my favorite things to do,” she writes. “Cooking and my kitchen has become the glue that has kept our family strong throughout the years. And the recipes I’m sharing are part of our family’s history and tradition.”
