About Katie Workman
KATIE WORKMAN is the author of The Mom 100 Cookbook. She is also the founding Editor in Chief of Cookstr.com, the website that shares tested, trusted recipes from cookbooks created by respected chefs and cookbook authors.
Katie was a kid who loved to cook, and a kid who loved cookbooks. She grew up teaching herself how to cook from the Silver Palate Cookbook, making bumpy homemade pasta following Marcella’s Hazan’s instructions in The Essentials of Italian Cooking to the letter, and asking for the entire Moosewood trilogy for holidays.
Her first job after college was with Clarkson Potter Publishers, specializing, naturally, in cookbooks, and she remained there for 12 years learning every part of the cookbook publishing world while becoming a Senior Editor. Katie worked with individual authors as well as companies—like Pillsbury and The American Heart Association—to develop their publishing programs. After a shorter stint as Associate Publisher at Workman Publishing, Katie left to help launch Cookstr.com in 2008. This was also the beginning of her career as an active food writer. She established the popular Cookstr weekly newsletter, and wrote for many websites and publications, including The Daily Beast, AOL Food, KitchenDaily.com, AARP.com, bravo.com, Boston Globe, The Wall Street Journal, and New York Magazine. She currently writes a bi-weekly column for The Huffington Post.
Katie sits on the board of City Harvest, New York’s leading food rescue nonprofit, and for the past 20 years has been an active supporter of Share Our Strength, a hunger relief organization dedicated to eradicating childhood hunger. Katie lives with her husband and two children in New York City, where she’s developed such an open-house reputation that all sorts of friends, neighbors, and families with kids in tow wind up at her table.
