Discussing some of the celebrity chefs attending the festival, Lee Brian Schrager, founder and director of the NYCWFF told Forbes he was delighted that Katherine was attending. "Someone like Katherine Heigl, she just loves to cook. Our friends at William Morris told us about her. I said, 'I cant imagine we'd get her.' And days later, we hear she's coming."
