Jessica Seinfeld on cooking for idiots and geniuses, and her husband Jerry's position in the kitchen

Tonight, Piers Morgan welcomes Jessica Seinfeld, mom of three, wife of comedian Jerry Seinfeld, and author of three cookbooks, including her latest, “The Can’t Cook Book: Recipes for the Absolutely Terrified.” 

In a fun and lighthearted interview, on a set laden with delicious looking dishes, Seinfeld talks about why she wrote the book and how she hopes it can help even someone like Morgan, who admits to being “hopeless” in the kitchen, despite the boast that he does make one great dish –  a killer spaghetti Bolognese.

“I took four years writing the book for people like – you use the word 'idiot' – I use the word 'genius,'” Seinfeld says of her target audience. “Genius is like my husband, who is good at everything else ... but I feel like this book is great for you, too, because you can get in and out of the kitchen really quickly. The recipes are for everyone.”

Asked if her famous funnyman husband ever cooks for her, Seinfeld said he does not, but notes that her writing has at least served to stir up his interest:

“He's actually so obsessed with this book and the fact that you can take something and problem solve. And so now he's really motivated ... I always say he used to be at the kitchen table and now he's sort of closer and closer and closer and now he's kind of at the counter where - while I'm cooking.”

Watch the clip to whet your appetite, then tune in for the full interview tonight at 9.
