Fans of RecipeLion’s Addie Gundry got to meet the chef and cookbook author at a book signing on August 9 at Lake Forest Book Store, located in the Chicago suburb of Lake Forest, Illinois. Gundry even shared samples of some of her favorite recipes from her two new cookbooks Family Favorite Casserole Recipes: 103 Comforting Breakfast Casseroles, Dinner Ideas, and No-Bake Desserts: 103 Easy Recipes for No-Bake Cookies, Bars, and Treats, including her Smoked Gouda and Mac & Cheese, as well as the no-bake Funfetti Cake Batter Bites.
Fans of all ages lined up for an opportunity to meet the cookbook author at the event and to get their cookbooks signed, and some of her younger fans asked Gundry regarding how she approached cooking and baking. Many of the younger fans were familiar with Gundry’s appearances on the Food Network, most recently on the show Food Network Star. Gundry, who has previously worked for Christian Etienne, Daniel Boulud, Thomas Keller, and Martha Stewart, holds a master’s degree in culinary arts at Auguste Escoffier in Avignon, France.
