Presenting…..the TRAILER!

family shot for Healthy Asian Favorites Cookbook

When did cookbooks start involving video trailers like movies?! Isn’t that just nuts?

Well, now I have my very own trailer, courtesy of our extended “family” – Todd and Diane of White On Rice Couple. They spent a couple of days with us, filmed us cooking, eating, playing and talking about the book, Steamy Kitchen Healthy Asian Favorites.

The book is released February 5th, and when you pre-order (here’s an Amazon link!) I’ll send you a signed book plate for the book (just fill out this form)

Okay, so without further blabbering, I’d like to present to you the Official Trailer for Steamy Kitchen Healthy Asian Favorites Cookbook <– typing that just made me feel important!

Let me know what you think of the video!!!!! Do you like!?

    Love the video, you have a beautiful family…but I have to tell you, the music is WAY TOO LOUD…..and I have it turned down almost as low as it will go….especially when you are talking, it’s hard to understand you…..this happened in another video you did, and I noticed others had written in about this also :) So maybe your next video, the sound could be turned down a couple of notches :) I’d rather hear what you have to say than listen to that music :)just sayin…………….

  9. Sylvia Carlisle — 1/11/13 @ 3:25 pm

    I use IE for web and the video wouldn’t play for me, but I am hoping it will play on facebook for me.

  10. Love! especially near the end with the whole big happy family, the boys, chickens, dogs, everyone!

  11. Maryann — 1/11/13 @ 4:12 pm

    Nicely done! The fact that you stress the importance of involving your family in the cooking is just priceless. This book sounds like the perfect book for my sons girlfriend who loves Asian food, but is a beginner cook. Then she can let me borrow it : )

  12. Sold! I can’t wait to buy it!

  13. amy — 1/11/13 @ 4:29 pm

  14. Jeanette — 1/11/13 @ 4:32 pm

  15. Carrie Newman — 1/11/13 @ 4:51 pm

    Awesome job! My husband was watching and hopefully he’ll catch that healthy bug as well!! Can’t wait to finish writing this so I can delve back into YOUR KITCHEN!!! lol…

  16. Paul — 1/11/13 @ 5:03 pm

  19. Foodess — 1/11/13 @ 5:49 pm

    Great trailer, congratulations!!!

  20. Beverley — 1/11/13 @ 5:59 pm

    Great trailer. I look forward to trying some of the recipes, everything looks delicious.

  21. Faleen — 1/11/13 @ 6:17 pm

    Jaden this is excellent, but I am certain that you already know that. The background music is lite, lively, and enjoyable. The video itself tells us what you do, how we can do it and at the same time gives a personal glimpse into your life. It makes us feel much closer to you as a person and not just someone who posts terrific recipes. It implies educating with a relaxed atmosphere. I LOVE IT. Congratulations to you all. Faleen

  22. Chef Kendra — 1/11/13 @ 6:33 pm

    Wow, that is terrific. Congratulations. :)

  23. Linda — 1/11/13 @ 6:45 pm

    I loved the trailer! Very professional and inviting. I want to eat that food! And buy that book! I love your web site and being able to see you and your family just having fun together is wonderful. Congrats and good luck with your book.

  24. Tori — 1/11/13 @ 7:12 pm

    Beautiful book trailer Jaden!! You look so pretty, and I loved seeing your family, your home, the food… just lovely. xoxo

  25. Deborah Butler — 1/11/13 @ 7:24 pm

    Congrats on the video, it looks wonderful!! I love your website, can’t wait for the book.

  26. DeeAnn S — 1/11/13 @ 7:25 pm

    A happy, up-beat video. Thanks for sharing a slice of your family life with us. :)

  27. MARY S — 1/11/13 @ 8:29 pm

    I loved the video! Thank U for sharing your family life with us.
    I have tried some of your recipes and they are GREAT!
    I can hardly wait for the cookbook.

  28. Great video Jaden – it’s got a home-spun, unpretentious feel to it that makes it a real pleasure to watch. It explains what the book is about too – those Korean barbecues look like a lot of fun.

  29. Deb Adams — 1/12/13 @ 4:55 am

    Terrific trailer…looks like you had fun! Anxiously waiting for your new cookbook! The Steamy Kitchen Cookbook is one of my go-to sources for quick, healthy, VERY tasty meals! I have never been successful with Asian recipes – until you! Fresh ingredients, bright colors, clean, crisp, smooth, spicy, sweet, sour, tender, crunchy…fantasmagorical! Thank you Jaden! You are a shining star here in SW FL!!! Wishing you continued success!

  30. Ren Behan — 1/12/13 @ 5:55 am

    I love the trailer Jaden, it’s wonderful, upbeat and gives a great description of your USP – healthy Asian cooking for the whole family. I really enjoyed testing some of the recipe and can’t wait to see your book here in the UK!

    Congratulations on this trailer and your fabulous new cookbook. Sounds super yummy and those shots of the food and all the people enjoying it had me salivating. Love the idea of introducing people to food that is beyond the take-out variety. Healthy food at home is wonderful!

  41. Wow, the video is FANTASTIC! I love how your say that Asian cooking is more than the standard Teriyaki. I can see this is SO true with just those quick views of what you were cooking in the video.
    :D

  42. Sashun4a — 1/14/13 @ 12:53 am

    About the video: you are charming! About your Buddha near the chicken house: why does it look like Darth Vader’s mask?
