This week on a brand new Sharp & Hot, host Emily Peterson kicks off the show with a short catch-up talking about her last week before welcoming guest David Venable, host for QVC's and author of the new cookbook, Back Around the Table. David chats about his background and how he managed to infuse his love of food and live television into a program that attracts over four million viewers twice weekly, and relates to Emily with the live aspect of radio, commenting that anything can happen and it typically does! Progressing through his impressive career, he explains that he doesn't consider himself a chef, rather a home cook that learns along with his viewers. After the break, David shares all the delicious details about his new book released today. Complete with some well-loved comfort food recipes and accompanying stories, David previews some amazing recipes with Emily! This program was brought to you by The International Culinary Center.
