Lil’ Deb’s Oasis Has a Cookbook — And Yes, It’s Wonderful


Your cook book collection is about to get much more colorful. Lil’ Deb’s Oasis—a culinary gem and 2019 James Beard award nominee—is transporting their bold, eccentric, and to-die-for dishes from Hudson to your kitchen. Please Wait to be Tasted will hit the shelves on June 21, serving up sensually named chapters like “Lubrication” and “Pillow Talk,” essays, and almost 70 recipes that explore popular menu items, twists on Pan-Latin classics, and even top-secret sauces. We’re especially excited to cook up favorites like ceviche mixto with popcorn, cheese-filled papusas, and Abuela’s flan. You’ll find the pages are zany, very pink, and downright whimsical at times—but hey, we expect nothing less from Lil’ Deb’s.
