Sharon Dowell, food editor for The Oklahoman, is featuring Oklahoma country music star Trisha Yearwood and her new cookbook in Wednesday’s Food section.
The cookbook is titled “Georgia Cooking in an Oklahoma Kitchen: Recipes From My Family to Yours,” and Yearwood co-wrote it with her mother and sister.
Yearwood – who lives in Owasso with her husband, fellow country star Garth Brooks – told Sharon she “couldn’t be happier” with how the cookbook turned out. Brooks wrote the foreword for the cookbook.
It has already reached the No. 4 spot on the New York Times best-seller list for hardcover advice books.
Sharon said that Yearwood was chipper and excited when talking about the process of assembling the book.
“We didn’t have any idea how it would go over because I’ve never done this before. And the response has been so overwhelming,” she told Sharon.
