Lidey Heuck of “Cooking In Real Life” Is
All About The IRL

Today’s guest is Lidey Heuck, author of the brand new book “Cooking in Real Life: Delicious & Doable Recipes for Every Day.” The Pittsburgh native began her career in food working as Ina Garten’s assistant, a job she got as a college senior after cold-emailing the Barefoot Contessa. Since then, Lidey has carved out a delicious space of her own, contributing to NYT Cooking and sharing everything from recipes to ideas on home decor, entertaining, and travel on her Lidey Likes website and Instagram. Her debut book features 100 recipes for all of life’s occasions, from chill weeknights to special celebrations. Lidey joins host Kerry Diamond to talk about lessons learned from Ina; her time with another Cherry Bombe favorite, Chef Erin French of The Lost Kitchen (you might have also seen Lidey on Magnolia Network’s “The Lost Kitchen”); and why her motto is “Just go for it. What’s the worst that could happen?”
