Food Network celebrity chef, Anne Burrell, will be in San Antonio Monday (Oct. 10) to sign copies of her new book at the Alon H-E-B.
And, SavorSA can help you win one.
Burrell stars in the Food Network show, “Secrets of a Restaurant Chef” (in its seventh season) and as co-host of the primetime hit “Worst Cooks in America” (in its second season).
Today and tomorrow (Wednesday) go to Facebook/SavorSA and click on the “like” button on the page. Then, respond to the post about Burrell with a comment on what your favorite recipe of hers is, or why you like her. If you already like SavorSA, put in your comment and you still have a chance to win a book.
Three SavorSA readers will receive books that will be sent directly from the publisher.
“Cook Like a Rock Star: 125 Recipes, Lessons, and Culinary Secrets” (Clarkson Potter, $27.99) is a brand new release. Burrell wrote it with Suzanne Lenzer, and it also has a foreword by Mario Batali.
Meet Burrell at the Alon Town Center H-E-B, 8503 NW Military Highway, 11:30-1:30 p.m. on Monday.
In the book, Burrell sets out to give home cooks the confidence and support they need to be rock stars in their own kitchens. Her 125 restaurant-quality recipes are designed for home cooks, from beginners to experts. Each recipe is broken down into key parts to make the process of learning and doing as simple as possible—the way Burrell herself does it—and will include easy-to-find ingredients and tips on skills and prepping techniques.
“Cook Like a Rock Star” features the same forthright approach and constant reassurance that Anne is known for on her shows. Whether she’s telling us how to use garlic most effectively (“perfume the oil, remove the garlic, and ditch it—it’s fulfilled its garlic destiny!”) or reaffirming the most important part of cooking (“at the end of the day the food should taste good!”), the reader will never feel alone at the stove.
Burrell graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and has worked at some of New York’s top restaurants (including Lidia Bastianich’s Felidia and Peter Hoffman’s Savoy), cooked professionally in Italy, taught at the Institute of Culinary Education, and battled alongside Mario Batali on Iron Chef America. While executive chef at Centro Vinoteca, she oversaw the kitchen of Gusto before being recruited to Food Network full-time.
