The Authors: Heidi Andermack & Amy Lynn Brown
After a dozen years in business together and having grown a company from just each other to a family of over 100, Chowgirls owners Heidi Andermack and Amy Brown finally had the opportunity to fulfill their lifelong dreams of writing a cookbook. As English majors, they had a nice head start; along with all those years of recipe writing for the business, they had a lot to say and the ability to say it well. Chowgirls Killer Party Food is the culmination of their past and future careers - Heidi’s as a writer and Amy’s as a bookseller and publishing professional. Arranged seasonally, the appetizer and cocktail recipes within represent both perennial Chowgirls favorites and a bounty of on-trend new ideas.
In the fall of 2016 we published a bestselling cookbook, Chowgirls Killer Party Food. We’re thrilled to have our cherished recipes accessible to home cooks and sold in bookstores around the country. In addition to a national cookbook tour, co-owners Amy and Heidi have been featured in O Magazine and on Oprah’s website. They’ve cooked on TV in Minneapolis, at WGN Chicago, CBS Los Angeles, and Fox New York. In January, the Detroit Free Press featured Chowgirls Killer Party Food – and some of the recipes within it – tagged with the headline “Take Your Super Bowl Food to the Next Level.”
