Cookwise, a practical guide to culinary mysteries and kitchen science, won the 1998 James Beard Award for Food Reference & Techniques. The book's author, culinary expert Shirley Corriher, got her start as a research biochemist at the Vanderbilt Medical school, and learned to cook preparing meals for a boarding school she and her husband ran.

Corriher now has a new DVD, Kitchen Secrets Revealed. With Thanksgiving upon us, she offers useful turkey tips. This interview originally aired on Nov. 24, 1997.
