Editorial Reviews


Reading through Vivian Howard’s This Will Make It Taste Good is like reading a cookbook by your real or imagined North Carolinian best friend... Howard’s intended audience is the time-crunched kitchen novice, though a more experienced cook will surely find some useful tips, as well. Each section is based around a recipe that can be prepped in advance and then used throughout the week in a multitude of dishes...In any time, This Will Make It Taste Good would be a great help to those of us who prefer recipes that look and taste more complex than they are to prepare. That it happens to arrive at a moment when we’re likely all sick of the contents of our fridges and our own culinary limitations is just a bonus.

Madeleine Davies, Eater

Simple and approachable doesn’t mean boring here—there are plenty of colorful infographics for those who need a little coaxing to read a recipe, and it’s all fun food: burgers crowned with glossy ‘cheese toupees,’ mouth-puckering pickle juice popsicles (picksickles, if you will), and four whole pages devoted to the savory umami bomb that is perfectly caramelized onions. And I mean it when I say this is for the no-cook crowd: for proof, just flip to the eggs softly scrambled in a cup in the microwave on page 190.

Howard’s ability to weave story into her fantastic recipes is part of what makes me so excited for her next book coming out this fall. In “This Will Make It Taste Good,” Howard solves everyday cooking dilemmas and provides next-level meal prep ideas (hello, great pantry staples).
The Kitchn

North Carolina chef, restaurateur, and PBS host Howard follows 2016’s Deep Run Roots with a personal and playful introduction to her fare. Chapter titles and recipe names are upbeat and engaging (Herbdacious, Can-Do Kraut), and explained in a pun-packed, chatty voice. Dishes are introduced with frank confessions, including her struggle to correctly spell “hors d’oeuvre” and various kitchen failures... Howard’s enthusiastic exploration of her life in and out of the kitchen shows her at her best and most delightful.
