How does one become an Iron Chef and a Chopped judge on Food Network--and what does she really cook at home? Alex Guarnaschelli grew up in a home suffused with a love of cooking. The daughter of a respected cookbook editor and a Chinese cooking enthusiast, Alex developed a passion for food at a young age. Old-School Comfort Food shares her journey from waist-high taste-tester to trained chef, along with the 100 recipes for how she learned to cook--and the way she still loves to eat. Here are Alex's secrets to great home cooking, where humble ingredients and familiar preparations combine with excellent technique and care to create memorable meals. Alex brings her recipes to life with reminiscences of everything from stealing tomatoes from her aunt's garden and her first bite of her mother's ṕte to being one of the few women in the kitchen of a renowned Parisian restaurant and serving celebrity clientele in her own successful New York City establishments.
