Celebrity Guest Speaker
Food Network Chef, Host of Secrets of a Restaurant Chef and Worst Cooks in America, Author of Cook Like a Rock Star: 125 Recipes, Lessons, and Culinary Secrets
With her trademark spiky blond hair and pumped-up personality, Anne Burrell has worked at some of the top restaurants in New York, studied the culinary landscape and traditions of Italy, battled alongside Mario Batali as his sous chef on Food Network’s Iron Chef America, and written a New York Times best-selling cookbook.
Anne eliminates the intimidation of restaurant dishes and reveals concise, easy-to-master techniques for the at-home cook on her Food Network series, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef. Anne also co-hosts Worst Cooks in America, a prime-time reality show where Anne leads a team of hopeless home cooks from around the country through culinary boot camp. In 2011, Anne published her first cookbook, “Cook Like a Rock
Star,” which gives home cooks the confidence and support to be rock stars in their own kitchens. And, in the fall of 2011, Anne starred in her own right on Next Iron Chef: Super Chefs.
Anne is currently focusing on new episodes of both of her hit shows and has begun work on her second book. Anne feels fortunate to have found a field that satisfies her so completely. “I feel so lucky that I have found my true passion in life.”
