Editorial Reviews

Review

"The author's humble approach is inviting and shows why her students were enthusiastic." ---Kirkus Starred Review

From the Author

"I feel there is a disconnect in this country when it comes to food and cooking. On one hand, there's a culture of hero worship around celebrity chefs that fuels cooking-as-a-spectator-sport on television. At the same time, marketers worked for decades to convince people that cooking themselves isn't worth their time, and that even simple dishes fall outside their grasp. All this explains why one woman in the book told me, 'I'm ashamed to admit it, but I've eaten Tuna Helper while watching Gordon Ramsey.' It's a funny line about a serious problem. The rise of convenience food and decline of home cooking are inextricably correlated to the surge of obesity and diabetes. If people think they can't cook, they put themselves at the mercy of companies whose interests are primarily financial to feed them instead. I believe in the power of home cooking and one of my life's mission is to help people find their way off the couch and into the kitchen.
