Chef Q&A: Emily Ellyn

August 26, 2015

Food Network celebrity chef Emily Ellyn has appeared on “Cupcake Wars” and “Cutthroat Kitchen,” and is now working on her first cookbook while also pursuing a Ph.D. (she already has two master’s degrees). Ambitious and focused, Ellyn relishes remaking classic recipes, which includes using healthier ingredients whenever possible. Ellyn talks with QSR about experimenting with a relatively new, healthier fat: high-oleic soybean oil.

When did you first find out about high-oleic soybean oil?
