Kristen Kish Cooking by Kristen Kish with Meredith Erickson

9780553459760Kristen Kish is amazing! I had heard wonderful things about Kish before I read this cookbook and her unique style . Her unique story of her life makes her cooking style even more interesting. Kish was a South Korea organ who turned into a model and now a successful cook. This book describes Kish life story and it shows some of her wonderful recipes. One of my favorite is the Stuffed Cabbage Rolls. Not all the recipes are my style but reading the booking was a delight to learn how Kristen Kish has created her style.

Summary about what the story is about from the author “When Amanda Gallo, fresh from the backwater of local TV, lands the job of her dreams at FAIR News—the coveted morning anchor slot—she’s finally made it: a six-figure salary, wardrobe allowance, plenty of on-air face time, and a chance to realize her dreams, not to mention buy herself lunch. Amanda Wakes Up takes off as Amanda feels for the first time that she can make her mom and her best friend proud and think about an actual future with her boyfriend, Charlie. But she finds her journalistic ideals shredded as she struggles to keep up with the issues in a ratings-crazed madhouse—battling for hair and makeup time, coping with her sexist (but scathingly handsome) coanchor, Rob, mixing up the headlines with pajama modeling on the street, and showing Benji Diggs, her media maestro boss, that she’s got what it takes.

As the news heats up in a hotly contested election season and a wild-card candidate, former Hollywood actor Victor Fluke, appears on the scene, Amanda’s pressure-cooker job gets hotter as her personal life unravels. Walking a knife’s edge between ambition and survival, and about to break the biggest story of her career, Amanda must decide what she’s willing to give up to get ahead—and what she needs to hold on to save herself.”
