She is the author of the seafood cookbook "Fish Market” (Running Press, 2013), which Weight Watchers dubbed “one of the top ten books to give and receive in 2013.” National Public Radio’s Kitchen Table also shortlisted “Fish Market” for “best gift for the beach cottage.”
Kathy was a contributing writer for the food encyclopedia “Entertaining from Ancient Rome to the Super Bowl” (Greenwood, 2008) and to an upcoming book on craft brewers and distillers. Currently she is writing the nonfiction book "Herring: A Global History" for Reaktion Books.
