Below is more information from the Cookbook, Cook Like A Rock Star
With Anne’s guidance, even the novice cook can turn out showstoppers like Whole Roasted Fish or Rack of Lamb Crusted with Black Olives, which are special enough for guests but easy enough for a weekday evening. For Piccolini (Little Nibbles), try making Truffled Deviled Eggs, Sausage and Pancetta Stuffed Mushrooms, or Baked Ricotta with Rosemary and Lemon. Delicious first courses include Pumpkin Soup with Allspice Whipped Cream and Garlic Steamed Mussels with Pimentón Aioli. And if you’re craving pasta, Chef Anne’s Light-as-a-Cloud Gnocchi, Sweet and Spicy Sausage Ragù, or Killer Mac and Cheese with Bacon will blow you away.
Whether she’s telling you how to use garlic most effectively (“perfume the oil, remove the garlic, and ditch it—it’s fulfilled its garlic destiny!”) or reaffirming the most important part of cooking (it should have the “sparkle factor!”), you will never feel alone at the stove. Anne’s effervescent personality and unmatched vitality will be there every step of the way–as teacher, coach, cooking partner, and friend.
Organized from “Piccolini and Firsts” to “Pasta, Seconds, Sides,” and, of course, “Dessert” Cook Like a Rock Star is all about empowering you with the confidence to own what you do in your kitchen, to be excited by what you’re making, and to experience the same kind of joy that Anne feels everyday when she cooks and eats.
 ANNE BURRELL graduated from the Culinary Institute of America and has worked at some of the top restaurants in New York (including Lidia Bastianich’s Felidia and Peter Hoffman’s Savoy). She cooked professionally in Italy, taught at the Institute of Culinary Education, and battled alongside Mario Batali on Food Network’s Iron Chef America. During her tenure as executive chef at Centro Vinoteca, she also oversaw the kitchen of Gusto before being recruited to Food Network full-time, first as the host of her own show, Secrets of a Restaurant Chef, and then as cohost of the primetime hit Worst Cooks in America.
