I had gained a lot of weight as high-flying, eating and drinking executive and yet, at home I couldn’t boil an egg. I thought: Eureka! I want to help women like me learn to cook. I was going to figure out how to be a happy, healthy, home cook, and wanted to teach and host my own TV cooking show. Yes, it would be difficult, but if my friends could build big dot com companies, heck, I could do this! So, just before I turned 30, I enrolled in culinary school.
