Amy Currie and her Secrets of a Home Cook, is bringing her talents to Vita's Kitchen

You could say that Amy Currie is curiously obsessive about cooking, eating and just about anything that has to do with food. This Summit Mom and cook extraordinaire, credits her grandmother with her passion for cooking who she says at a young age "mesmerized her with pearls of cooking wisdom which tumbled out of her mouth as eloquently as the ones she wore around her neck." Amy learned a lot of secrets in her Grandmother's kitchen like how to roast a chicken (nudge whole, unpeeled garlic cloves underneath), to how to make chicken soup (because nothing was wasted), to perfect pie crust (add ground nuts), and light as air cake (don't overbeat).
