This is no ordinary cookbook. I Can’t Cook, But I Know Someone Who Can is a tell-all collaboration between twenty-five of Charlotte’s greatest chefs and one of our city’s worst cooks. Stacey Simms, co-host of Charlotte’s Morning News on News Talk 1110 WBT, shares the dark side of her own kitchen: the roasted but still half frozen holiday turkey, the emergency visit from the local fire department and the just-cooked soup poured down the drain. Her stories are as honest as they are humorous, but Stacey isn’t ready to hang up her oven mitts just yet. She has somehow convinced the best restaurants in Charlotte to share their recipes. Many of the featured chefs have generously offered practical advice, along with their recipes, to help both serious foodies and hopeless home cooks like Stacey. The proceeds from the book will help to raise awareness and funds in the fight against type 1 (juvenile) diabetes. Stacey’s three-year-old son has type 1.
