Tamie Cook

Growing up, Tamie loved to cook at the knee of her mother. Little did she know this early love for food would be rekindled years later in Paris, leading her to the New England Culinary Institute and then to the Food Network show Good Eats, where she worked as Culinary Director for eleven years. Now, when she’s not working as a personal chef for celebrities such as Robert Downey Jr., Michelle Pfeiffer, Anne Hathaway, or Sylvester Stallone, she is researching, cooking, or playing with food. Started in 2013, Tamie Cook Culinary Productions is a much-sought-after culinary consulting firm specializing in recipe development, teaching, catering, food styling, and myriad other services. Tamie has contributed recipe development, testing, and food styling to thirty-three cookbooks and is currently working on the thirty-fourth. Whether it’s an intimate dinner for two or a cookbook with 200 recipes, bringing food and people together in ways that transform them both is always Tamie’s goal.

The morning of our last day at Hambidge was an exhausting one, given that feeding almost 100 the night before had been no easy feat. We gathered for breakfast not only to replenish our bodies but also to discuss our success of the past weeks together. As we sat on the front porch of Lucinda’s Rockhouse, we reveled in the memories of the delicious meal we’d created and served, a meal that was both hard-won and beautiful.
