She has shot several notable cookbooks, including Chrissy Teigen's Cravings and Charlotte Druckman's Stir, Sizzle, Bake.

"Kass shares the lessons he instilled in the White House kitchen in a remarkably approachable way...The recipes throughout are easy to follow and precisely how we want to be (and probably should be) eating in 2018." - Food & Wine
