katie chin global family cookbook
Katie Chin’s Global Family Cookbook
"Being a working mom, I know how hard it is to get dinner on the table and how much we all want our families to enjoy the experience of sitting down together. Adding fun, fresh and interesting new flavors to your routine is just the ticket. And while we all enjoy the delicious, diverse and exciting world flavors available to us today while dining out, I know many people are still intimidated by the thought of trying their hand at making Moroccan Chicken or a Banh Mi Street Tacos in their home kitchen. I thought, 'Wouldn’t it be great to create a resource featuring a wide array of delicious, globally-infused recipes that are easy to make with ingredients found primarily at our local grocery stores and using everyday pots, pans and utensils?' Of course it is!" Katie Chin is a caterer, award-winning cookbook author, television chef and food blogger who grew up working in the kitchens of her late mother, Leeann Chin's award-winning Minneapolis-area restaurants. Katie co-hosted the national PBS cooking series Double Happiness in conjunction with her mother, and together they wrote Everyday Chinese Cooking (Clarkson Potter, 2000). On her own, Katie wrote 300 Best Rice Cooker Recipes and the award-winning bestsellers Everyday Thai Cooking and Katie Chin's Everyday Chinese Cookbook. Katie is recognized as a pan-Asian cooking expert and has been featured in many food and lifestyle magazines and has made numerous appearances on national television and as a guest judge on Food Network's Iron Chef America. She appeared as a chef contestant on Cutthroat Kitchen and Beat Bobby Flay.
