When a chef counts Julia Child and M.F.K. Fisher as his personal mentors, you can bet he has some interesting stories. And these stories are more than just stories…they have relevance for how we cook and eat today.
Last weekend I was in Los Angeles for a culinary conference which meant (oh, the irony), that I had no time to do food prep for the coming week. This meant buying my work lunches (salads, but still) and coming up with dinners on the fly. This weekend, in the interest of making my food week go smoother, I got busy in the kitchen after breakfast.
More of my interviews with David Ludwig, MD, PhD, author of Always Hungry (a book grounded in the science that will hopefully put to rest the mistakes and misinformation of the low-fat era) and his wife, Chef Dawn Ludwig, who developed the easy, healthy, delicious recipes in the book.
A little behind the scenes look at the amazing gathering of nutrition scientists, medical experts, food systems experts and health/nutrition journalists (most them registered dietitians) who gathered in Boston on one chilly weekend to talk about Finding Common Ground among seemingly disparate nutritional philosophies.
