It’s no surprise that Cat Cora has become a world-renowned chef. Her culinary aspirations began at an early age, and by 15, she had developed a business plan for her own restaurant. In 2005, she made television history on Food Network’s “Iron Chef America” as the first and only female Iron Chef, and in November 2006 Bon Appetit Magazine bestowed her with their Teacher of the Year Award, an award she calls, “the greatest recognition she could achieve as a chef.” That month, she was also honored with another great culinary distinction when she was named Executive Chef of the magazine. With restaurants at Macy’s South Coast Plaza, San Francisco, Houston’s airports and another at Walt Disney World, Cat’s bringing a taste of her culinary influence to both coasts. Cat is the author of three cookbooks. Her first cookbook, Cat Cora’s Kitchen, was inspired by her Greek and Southern heritage and contains many of her family’s favorite recipes. In her second book, Cooking from the Hip: Fast, Easy, Phenomenal Meals, Cat elevates at home cooking to new levels, applying her “go-with-what-you’ve got” philosophy to creating simple, yet sensational meals. Cat’s third cookbook, Classics with a Twist: Fresh Takes on Favorite Dishes, showcases her signature fast and healthy approach to family-friendly recipes from around the world.
