Barbara McKay, former WBTV personality, released her first food memoir, Coming Home: Recipes and Reflections from a Life in the Spotlight, on Oct. 13, published by SPARK Publications. Barbara McKay is one of Charlotte’s most popular and recognizable media personalities.
This book showcases her life in the spotlight and the recipes for food (and life) she learned along the way. Her love of food opened doors to travel the world and meet movie stars and royalty, but it also kept her grounded to home and family. Barbara shares her love for food, life, and her deep faith. 
The book includes:
“This book is a compilation and celebration of the many great people I’ve met, the blessings of so many experiences, and the recipes loved and requested by family, friends, and fans,” Barbara said.
Barbara’s fans and colleagues are already sharing rave reviews of the book.
“While this appears to be a beautiful book with delectable recipes and stories about Barbara McKay’s incredible career, it’s so much more than that. Coming Home is the primer on how to live an extraordinary life with grace, wit, charm, style, tenacity, and mountains of hard work. Only Barbara could do it all so beautifully and make it look so darn simple.”
– Laura Vinroot Poole, Owner, Capitol
“Barbara’s story is a joyful, life-affirming reminder that when we share our truest selves with those we love, every meal is a feast. And what a feast these recipes are! Barbara brings her warmth, grace, and generosity of spirit to every page. Passion for life and a boundless faith are her secret ingredients in the kitchen, and everywhere else.”
– Sheri Lynch, syndicated talk show host and author
