Eva Longoria is welcoming you to her kitchen – sort of.
The Mexican-American actress is digging deep into her abuelita's recipes.
“Throughout my childhood my family grew our own vegetables and raised our own chickens,” Longoria mentions in her book. “Everyday mom cooked with garden fresh calabasa (squash).”
She thanks her family for inspiring her “culinary journey.”
Longoria says in the book how she always made sure her family was fed before tackling the responsibilities of her demanding showbiz career.
“I cannot count the number of times I’ve found myself in a Gucci dress and heels—with full hair and make up about to run to an event—pulling a roasted chicken out of the oven in order to make sure that my family is fed before leaving the house to face a hundred photographers on the red carpet,” Longoria writes in her book. “…My family comes first, and my acting second.”
Longoria, who grew up in Corpus Christi, TX., says she treasures Mexican food and wants to “offer her family’s tried-and-true recipes and techniques.”
