Debra Ponzek

Internationally-acclaimed chef and author of multiple cookbooks. The Dinnertime Survival Cookbook brings delicious meals together in a snap.  Like most of you, I wear many hats. With my husband, Greg Addonizio, I own a business in Connecticut called Aux Delices: four stores offering company-branded, prepared foods and hand-picked specialty foods, plus a busy catering arm.
