Innovator Interview: Aida Mollenkamp

Aida Mollenkamp is the epitome of a modern food star. A Le Cordon Bleu-trained chef, Aida started out her media career as a founding editor of venerable food website Chow. Within a few years, she has attained regular shows on both the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. Her Food Network show, Ask Aida, centers around interaction with her audience via the web, bringing the spirit of the social web to television. Aida maintains a robust online presence outside her cooking shows, and even finds time to work with a non-profit dedicated to addressing child hunger and helping kids learn how to eat and cook healthily. With BlogHer co-founder and CEO, Lisa Stone, at the helm, we'll explore Aida's evolution from chef to online writer to multimedia personality.
