For Katie Lee, host of The Cooking Channel’s series Beach Bites and co-host of Food Network’s The Kitchen, cooking wasn't just a hobby growing up - it was a way of life. Raised in a modest, tight-knit West Virginia family, each evening centered around the dinner menu. Eager to get involved, Katie began cooking at the tender age of 4 under the guidance of her mentor Grandma Dora. Using fresh vegetables from her Grandpa's garden and meat from the family's cattle and pig farms, Katie quickly learned the value of seasonal ingredients. Katie’s third cookbook, Endless Summer Cookbook, was released in April 2015. Katie's first cookbook, The Comfort Table, was released in 2008, soon followed by The Comfort Table: Recipes for Everyday Occasions (2009). In addition to her comfort food cookbooks, she published her first novel, Groundswell, in 2011. Outside of her culinary and literary adventures, Katie is an ambassador for 96 Elephants and works closely with the Wildlife Conservation Society and Food Bank of New York. When not working or volunteering, she enjoys surfing, traveling and playing with her dog, Gus. She resides in the Hamptons and NYC.
