Colu Henry isn’t a fan of baking. So much so that the writer and recipe-developer tried to name her ella latest cookbook “Please Bring Dessert” — a nod to what she wants from guests invited to her ella Hudson home. Her publisher, concerned readers would assume the title meant it was a baking book, balked.
It doesn’t matter. Henry, a New York Times contributor whose second cookbook, “Colu Cooks: Easy Fancy Food,” comes out April 26, shines in the savory realm anyway. The majority of her latest book by Ella is devoted to simple recipes that elevate into beautiful dishes by adhering to the concept that “sophisticated food does n’t need to be fussy.”
