Kix Brooks Set to Serve Outdoor Cookbook This Summer

kix brooks

Kix Brooks  is expanding his entrepreneurship with the release of his first cookbook, Cookin’ It With Kix: The Art of Celebrating and The Fun of Outdoor Cooking on August 30th. Written with long-time radio producer and friend Donna Britt, the personal book includes over 100 recipes showcasing Brooks’ passion for all types of outdoor cooking, oftentimes with a flare of his Louisiana heritage highlighted, in family recipes alongside personal stories. From side dishes to desserts, cocktails to hot sauces and duck gumbo to beignets, Brooks has created the perfect collection for get-togethers and easy entertaining. Fans can now pre-order the cookbook at

“This cookbook is all about making it easy to be outside creating memories with the people who mean the most to you,” said Brooks. “Whether you are getting ready for a backyard BBQ, planning a menu for Thanksgiving Dinner or want to cook up some fish you just pulled out of a stream, we have recipes for you. Before you know it, you’ll be cookin’ like a Cajun too!”

“We couldn’t be more excited about working with Kix on this unique book,” said Matt Baugher, Senior Vice President of Thomas Nelson and Publisher of W Publishing Group. “The recipes are amazing but this is as much a celebration guide as it is a cookbook. And enjoying life is one of the things that Kix has been espousing for years, whether onstage or behind the microphone of his radio show. Buyers of this book are in for a treat.”
