KATIE BROWN IS THE HOST OF THE KATIE BROWN WORKSHOP
Katie Brown, host of The Katie Brown Workshop, grew up in Michigan where she became inspired by nature and the joy of interior design when she was allowed to revamp her bedroom for her 11th birthday. Later she channeled her creative energy into a catering business in Hollywood that led to a cafe and vintage furnishings shop called Goat. Right after opening a second Goat on Mackinac Island, the chamber of commerce told the entrepreneur that Lifetime Television called, and was searching for their next Martha Stewart. Soon she was sharing her youthful brand of cooking, craft and gardening on Lifetime, A&E and Style.
Today Katie is a wife, mother of two, and the exuberant host of The Katie Brown Workshop, now in its sixth season on PBS and Create. "I keep my style of cooking simple, with humble ingredients and recipes that are easy to follow, but have a bit of flair," says Katie. "I’m always looking for shortcuts for the busy moms and caretakers out there. Sub-Zero and Wolf really work for the way my family and I live. I appreciate the way the refrigerator has glass doors so I can see what’s inside, with two separate refrigeration units so we don’t waste energy when the kids open it, and deep refrigerated drawers where I know I can easily find my veggies or meat."
Sub-Zero refrigeration and Wolf cooking equipment also grace her TV studio kitchen. "Every element of Sub-Zero and Wolf is beautiful, yet super practical—just how I like to do things at the Workshop with my recipes and projects," says Katie. "I believe cooking is somewhat of a contact sport, so I need my teammates—the range and the refrigerator—to be as rugged as me. The handles on the refrigerator are sturdy. The burners on the range are thick and I am a big fan of the iconic red knobs. There’s a power in the way the appliances are made that makes me feel confident in the kitchen."www.katiebrown.com
