110 SIMPLE, NOURISHING, MOSTLY GLUTEN-FREE RECIPES THAT ARE BIG ON FLAVOR AND REIMAGINE THE CONCEPT OF "HEALTHY FOOD."

My mission is to empower hungry readers everywhere to feed themselves and their loved ones well and have fun doing it. Rather than focusing on restriction or deprivation, I believe in asking: What can we add to our plates?

In my debut cookbook, Big Bites, I’m sharing 110 wholesome, comforting, mostly gluten-free recipes that are full of flavor, nourishment, and fun—and meant to be devoured in big bites!

Packed with so much personality and joy, this cookbook is a celebration of nature and seasonality and my hope is that it encourages home cooks (that’s you!) to rethink familiar ingredients.

 

“I love Kat’s food philosophy—that we all have the ability to have a loving relationship with ourselves and savoring delicious, healthy food can be a part of that every day. Her joie de vivre really translates into a joy of cooking and sharing her gift for doing it with fun and creativity.”

— Katie Couric

 

Big Bites BRINGS FLAVOR, NOURISHMENT AND PERSONALITY IN EVERY SINGLE DISH - WITHOUT ANY EXTRA FUSS.
