Kris Jenner’s new book, titled In the Kitchen with Kris: A Kollection of Kardashian-Jenner Family Favorites, has only been out a few days, but it has already amassed a paltry one-and-a-half star rating on Amazon.
Billed as “a new cookbook and entertainment guide filled with Kris Jenner’s very own insightful tips and favorite recipes” in the description on Amazon, the book touts “nearly 70 favorite recipes that have become the centerpiece of Kardashian-Jenner family traditions.”
It would be one thing if Jenner were just getting bad reviews from people who don’t like the show, and there are plenty of those.
"Save your money. Buy a real cookbook written by someone who actually cooks,” writes one reviewer.
“Just another ploy by the Kardashian clan to make a ton of money without any talent to back it up,” said another.
But some people point out some particular things that make the book cringeworthy.
"Including dead Nicole Simpson's Chicken Nachos recipe is disturbing," one reviewer crowed. "This woman has no shame and is everything a Mother should not be. Don’t waste your money on this KOOKbook from HELL!"
"I found the book incredibly pretentious," wrote another, "with references to her late husband amd also Nicole Simpson, and their 'favourite dishes'. I definitely don't think it was the right platform to make a tribute to a murdered woman, for your own personal gain. It was distasteful & unnecessary."
Kris Jenner was married to Robert Kardashian, a member of O.J. Simpson’s legal defense team that got him acquitted of the murder of wife Nicole. After Robert’s death, Kris was romantically linked to O.J. in the tabloids. There has been speculation that O.J. is actually Khloe Kardashian’s father, but this is repeatedly denied.
At least some people gave the recipes an honest try.
“These recipes in here are bland and tasteless, I made the macaroni and cheese and you would think with all the different varieties of cheese used it would be flavorful but instead I got a very expensive unedible [sic] mass of oily noodles.”
"Please, save your money. I tried 2 recipes. Horrible!”
"Okay, So you figure, 'How bad could it be?' Let me tell you. Eat the book itself, it will taste better than the recipes within."
Kris Jenner’s recent split with husband Bruce Jenner is the latest in her personal branch of reality programming that feeds the massive empire that is Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
