Episode 301: Writing a Memoir with Food TV Executive Producer Karen Katz

Hello, and welcome to another episode of the podcast. Today, I have an interview with Food TV Executive Producer Karen Katz. Karen has worked on food television shows in various competition, lifestyle, documentary, reality, children’s, and music/variety programming. She just completed her first book, GETTING SAUCED—How I Learned Everything I Know about Food from Working in TV, a memoir about her life behind the scenes in TV working with some beloved chefs: Emeril Lagasse, Julia Child, Bobby Flay, and Buddy Valastro, to name a few. Today on the podcast, Karen and I discuss why she wrote her memoir, what she learned from working in TV, highlights of her years at Food Network and why food shows are so popular. Karen also shares her advice with someone who wants to get on a cooking show, the value of promoting books on TV, and the inclusion of recipes in her memoir.
