Chefs are around tempting, delicious food all day. So how do they manage to stay in shape—and eat so well?
For her book Smart Chefs Stay Slim, journalist Allison Adato talked to 40 of the country's top culinary stars—including Thomas Keller, Nancy Silverton, Eric Ripert and Tom Colicchio—to find out how they balance food-lust with fitness.
She will share what she learned—strategies for dining out, easy ways to add flavor but not calories, and how to eat healthfully while enjoying the pleasure of great food (including chocolate!)—in conversation with celebrated New York Times food writer Melissa Clark and award-winning chef Marc Murphy.
Allison Adato is a senior editor at People, and the author of Smart Chefs Stay Slim: Lessons in Eating and Living from America’s Best Chefs, which the Wall Street Journal called “an upbeat anthology that is part motivational tome, part healthy-living guide and part—thank heavens—good recipes."
Raised in France, Italy and Washington DC, Marc Murphy is executive chef and owner of the Landmarc and Ditch Plains restaurants in New York City, a judge on the Food Network’s Chopped, and spokesperson for Share our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
Melissa Clark is the New York Times’ “A Good Appetite” columnist and a James Beard-award-winning author of 33 books of food writing and recipes, many in collaboration with chefs like Daniel Boulud. Her most recent is Cook This Now: 120 Easy and Delectable Dishes You Can’t Wait to Make.
