In an interview with Food Republic, Alexandra Guarnaschelli—host of Food Network's Alex's Day Off and chef at NYC's trendy restaurants Butter and The Darby—reveals that she is working on her first cookbook, which should be released some time next year. Guarnaschelli says she waited longer than might be expected for a chef with TV cred because her mother is legendary W.W. Norton cookbook editor Maria Guarnaschelli. “If your mother was Steven Spielberg, you wouldn't direct a movie, right?” the chef explains. “It's daunting.” While Maria Guarnaschelli is not likely to be involved in the publication, her presence may be felt in some of the recipes. Chef Guarnaschelli's healthy Spice-Braised Chicken Legs with Red Wine and Tomato are inspired by a dish her mom used to make, and can be prepared ahead of time and reheated for an easy family dinner.
