For Katie, culinary personality and co-host on Food Network’s The Kitchen, cooking wasn't just a hobby growing up—it was a way of life. Raised in a modest, tight-knit West Virginia family, each evening centered around the dinner menu. Eager to get involved, Katie began cooking at the tender age of four under the guidance of her mentor, Grandma Dora. Using fresh vegetables from her grandpa's garden and meat from the family's cattle and pig farms, Katie quickly learned the value of seasonal ingredients. Katie's first cookbook, The Comfort Table, was released in 2008, soon followed by The Comfort Table: Recipes for Everyday Occasions (2009). In addition to her comfort food cookbooks, she writes a column for SELF and published her first novel, Groundswell, in 2011. Outside of her culinary and literary adventures, Katie sits on the Celebrity Board for Feeding America. When not working or volunteering, she enjoys surfing, traveling, and playing with her pug, Fionula. She resides in the Hamptons and Tribeca.
Katie has a beautiful new cookbook coming out April 2015, the Endless Summer Cookbook, featuring over 100 new recipes perfect for summer.
