Food Network Star Sunny Anderson Comes to Schnucks Des Peres

ST. LOUIS – Sunny Anderson draws from her military brat upbringing, her years as a reporter in the Air Force, and the New York City DJ position that eventually led her to Emeril Lagasse and the Food Network for the recipes and vibrant stories featured in her debut book: Sunny’s Kitchen: Easy Food for Real Life (Clarkson Potter, September 17, 2013; $22.50; Trade Paperback).  The recipes and vibrant stories featured paint a picture of true comfort food, though her life of travel and exploring new flavors.

Anderson’s travels will bring her to Schnucks Des Peres on Friday, Sept. 20 to meet fans and to sign copies of the cookbook.
