For Katie, culinary personality and co-host on Food Network’s hit show “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 4 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 latest book “Endless Summer Cookbook”, was recently released to rave reviews. Her first cookbook, The Comfort Table, was released in 2008, soon followed by The Comfort Table: Recipes for Everyday Occasions (2009). In addition to her cookbooks, she published her first novel, Groundswell, in 2011. In addition to “The Kitchen”, Katie can be seen regularly on Food Network shows “Best. Ever.” and “Beat Bobby Flay”,and Cooking Channel’s special “Beach Bites with Katie Lee.” Outside of her culinary and literary adventures, Katie sits on the Celebrity Board for Feeding America and is an active support for 96 Elephants. When not working or volunteering, she enjoys surfing, traveling and playing with her pug, Fionula. She resides in the Hamptons and Tribeca. Check local listings »

Perfection is not the goal -- it is about creating a relaxed environment where everyone feels comfortable.

I am all about comfort food, but to be truly comforted by food, I need to know where it came from and how it got to my plate.
