CookWise shows how scientific insights can be applied to traditional cooking, while BakeWise applies the same idea to baking. Some compare Corriher"s approach to that of Harold McGee (who Corriher thanks as her "intellectual hero" in the "My Gratitude and Thanks" section of Cookwise) and Alton Brown. She has made a number of appearances as a food consultant on Alton Brown"s show Good Eats and has released a Digital Video Disc, Corriher"s Kitchen Secrets Revealed.
