Description

A fresh approach to favorite classic dishes from an accomplished TV chef. For Anna Olson, the kitchen is where her culinary training and extraordinary talents merge. Anna's deliciously fresh new takes on classic dishes and favorite recipes are recorded here for the first time. In the Kitchen with Anna reveals the many tricks of the trade that this popular chef has gathered over her long career in cooking. She enhances the recipes with background information, chats about new flavor combinations, introduces special techniques, and shares her personal kitchen experiences. Some of the 125 delectable dishes are: Contemporary cobb salad Vietnamese shrimp salad rolls with cashew dipping sauce Spiced lamb and pepper calzone Chicken cordon bleu panini Halibut in parchment with white balsamic and shiitakes Garlic-roasted turkey crown with chardonnay pan sauce Pappardelle with squash, ricotta and sage Buttermilk blueberry pancakes Chocolate almond toffee bars Pear chutney. Anna's new cookbook, like her kitchen, offers up a wealth of delightful recipes and entertaining stories.

About the author

Originally from Atlanta, Georgia, Anna Olson moved to Ontario as a child and grew up in Toronto. She studied politics and sociology at Queen's University in Kingston and pursued a brief career in banking before realizing that cooking was her true passion. Anna followed her dream of becoming a chef by enrolling in the renowned culinary program at Johnson & Wales University in Vail, Colorado. She has never looked back. After finishing her studies in 1995, Anna found her way to Niagara. She started working as a line cook at distinguished restaurant Inn on the Twenty, where she was soon promoted to pastry chef. It was here that she met her husband and business partner, head chef Michael Olson. Anna joined the Food Network in 2002 as the host of Sugar. The show's success prompted two companion cookbooks, Sugar and Another Cup Of Sugar. In 2008, Anna’s second series premiered, Fresh with Anna Olson, which was filmed in her own kitchen. The show currently airs daily on Food Network Canada. In 2011, Anna published her seventh cookbook, Back to Baking.
