All chefs are welcome in David Venable's kitchen.
As QVC's resident foodie, the In the Kitchen With David host knows the joys that good food can bring to families. So when given the opportunity to create his fourth cookbook titled Half Homemade, Fully Delicious, David wanted to create something special for chefs of all levels.
"We all want to put great food on the table, but we need to do it in record time," David shared with E! News. "Each recipe is ten ingredients or less and each has a full-page color photo."
And with the holiday season quickly approaching, David knows kitchens will be busier than ever. At his home, he hopes the space will be filled with special memories.
"Whenever someone walks into my kitchen, it is my hope that they will find a welcoming and comforting space," David shared. "I want everyone to feel that this is the place where we celebrate each other and great food. It's an informal and fun location that requires that all who enter share some laughter and some soul-satisfying recipes!"
In celebration of his new cookbook, David shared some of his favorite kitchen items. Start shopping below.
