For 15 seasons on Top Chef, viewers have watched Gail Simmons critique cheftestants' food. Simmons has now cast herself in a new role: cookbook author. Combining lessons learned on the set, her experiences cooking in professional kitchens and extensive notes from her travel journals, she has written Bringing It Home, a cookbook filled with fun, approachable recipes. On this episode of Speaking Broadly, Simmons shares how she has overcome uncertainty about everything from writing this book to voicing her opinions on TV to what's next.
