If you’re someone who doesn’t cook or doesn’t know how, you might think that the kitchen is the most intimidating place in the world. But today’s guest, food personality, former chef, former food editor at Bon Appétit, and NYT bestselling author Molly Baz says it doesn’t have to be. Her entire goal is to inspire a new generation to find joy in the kitchen and take pride in putting a home-cooked meal on the table. In her new cookbook “More is More,” Molly is helping us learn the foundational tools to become a better cook. Danielle + Molly discuss:

  • The one ingredient that will change your food!
  • Why Molly dropped the “Chef” title
  • The unique way Molly hustled + trained to be a chef in fine dining establishments 
  • Why she chose trial by fire over a traditional education when preparing to be a chef 
  • Her pivot into the word of food media, working for Bon Appetit and Epicurious 
  • Her views on how someone can refine their palette through their mindset (and what it means to be a curious eater!)
  • Why she worries about modern conveniences like UberEats or Postmates making the art of cooking obsolete 
  • How she learned to say “YES” versus “NO” by identifying her purpose in life
  • The ability that sets an amateur cook from a professional one
  • What she sees as her biggest failure
  • Her journey to becoming a bestselling cookbook author with her 2021 book “Cook This Book” and her new release “More is More”
  • How to build the perfect sandwich 
  • Her favorite restaurant in the world
