Literally - when you see the picture she took with me and my SIGNED copy of her book! She just grabbed me and hugged me! Completely fearless of people. LOVE it!
She wrote, "Be fearless in the kitchen!" And look how cute her stamp is!!
I read her first Cooking Writing book called The Sharper Your Knife, The Less You Cry which I LOVED!! She is a writer. When she comes home from a vacation she finds out her job is no longer. She calls her boyfriend and says, "Hey I'll move in with you," but he says, "No you should go to cooking school like you've always wanted." So she ends up in Paris at Le Cordon Bleu and from there her stories are just riveting. I laughed, I cried and my mouth watered the entire time. My mom even made a recipe out of the book. That is one thing I love, all of Kathleen's books come with recipes.
Her new book, The Kitchen Counter Cooking School is about a group of complete misfits in the kitchen - KIDDING. She talks to people, goes in their kitchens and teaches them not only how to cook, but what to look for and why to buy certain things. She doesn't just teach people how to cook, but WHY to cook.
Here's one of her stories from the book . . .
I cannot wait to sit down, read and then cook from her new book! So excited and really blessed that I got to meet her.
She talked about two other books she is in the process of writing and I AM SO EXCITED! She is just such a talented writer.
