The One-Woman War on Stove Phobia
Have you ever met a woman who has literally never turned on a stove? Or a man well into his adult years who still goes to Mom's for dinner every night because cooking is just too much for him? Well, Kristina Kuzmic has, and she's absolutely not okay with it.
Starting this Saturday, the woman sometimes known as The Ambush
Cook will be storming the kitchens of strangers who need culinary instruction. Her very
raw recruits in this battle will be put through their onion-chopping paces by their drill sergeant (whose
basic training methods involve enforced dancing at the cutting board—and lots
of it). By the end of boot camp, they will have gotten past their nerves and on
to making braised short ribs.
After witnessing the Ambush Cook in action, viewers (both the skillet shy and the accomplished-but-lazy chefs among them) will surely feel compelled to take up the spoon and begin to cook. And therein lies Kirstina's real victory.
