Recipes From Old School Comfort Food - House & Home

Food Network chef Alex Guarnaschelli shares the recipes that taught her how to cook.

Before becoming a Food Network celebrity chef with appearances on Iron Chef, Chopped and The Best Thing I Ever Ate, Alex Gaurnaschelli helped her mother in the kitchen. The daughter of a respected cookbook editor and a Chinese cooking enthusiast, Alex developed a passion for food at a young age. In her latest cookbook, Old School Comfort Food (2013 Clarkson Potter), Alex shares her journey from waist-high taste-tester to trained chef. The book features 100 recipes and divulges Alex’s secrets to great home cooking, where humble ingredients combine with technique to create memorable meals.

For your next big holiday, try her Turkey With Miles Standish Stuffing Recipe or hearty Green Bean Casserole. For dessert, indulge in Alex's Yellow Cake oozing with caramel sauce.
