This week on Sharp & Hot, Chef Emily Peterson is joined by two food authors, Andre Mack and Kate Payne. You might know Andre's name from his sommelier fame, but he recently self-published Small Thyme Cooks - a culinary activity and coloring book. Kate recently released The Hip Girl's Guide to the Kitchen, and shares her beginnings in blogging, and how she came to the print world. Later, find out what wines work well on hot summer nights, and find out how to keep your kitchen cool in the heat! Thanks to our sponsor, Bonnie Plants.


"Self-publishing wasn't scary- I just did it! From start to finish, there was no one to interfere with the creative process." [12:30]
