It was while attending Canisius College in Buffalo that Anne Burrell, who has taught in both the professional and recreational programs at the Institute for two years, first worked in a restaurant. Upon graduating from the CIA, Burrell studied at the Italian Culinary Institute for Foreigners, spending time in Piedmont, Umbria, Tuscany and Liguria. In Tuscany, she worked at La Bottega del '30, a 30-seat restaurant that offered one seating each night.
Burrell returned to the U.S. as a sous chef at Felidia, owned by chef Lidia Bastianich. She then moved on to Savoy, where she was chef in the small prix fixe dining room.
After running the kitchen at Sasha Muniak’s Centro Vinoteca from its opening in July 2007 through June 2008, Burrell landed her own show on the Food Network. Aptly named “Secrets of a Restaurant Chef,” Burrell is now sharing her stock of insider secrets from years of training and restaurant experience with her fans.
In January 2010, Anne’s new show “Worst Cooks in America” debuted on Food Network as the highest rated, most watched night in Food Network history, attracting four million viewers for the first episode; the show is back with a third season in 2012. Burrell competed in the culinary competition the “Next Iron Chef” on the Food Network. Burrell released her first cookbook in October 2011 titled “Cook Like a Rock Star” and recently finished a National Book tour.
