My most precious childhood memories, are those spent in the kitchen with my grandmother. It didn’t matter if she was making my favorite cheese toast or one of her famous lemon pound cakes... I loved being in that kitchen! Who she was as a person was somehow spiritually transferred into anything she cooked and you could feel it with every bite. It was food from the soul. And that's the feeling I want to evoke with my food. I wrote this cookbook to provide the readers a culinary journey into who I am as a Chef and as a person.
People often ask me, how do I come up with some of my dishes… the answer is simple: I love people and I love food. Both stimulate my craft. Peak performance eating fuels bodies, but it can also enrich souls. Food brings people together, incites conversation, and has the power to heal spiritually, physically, or mentally. I want you to not only prepare these dishes for yourself, but also share them with others.
I think everyone should feel what I felt when I took a bite out of my grandma's cheese toast. I hope the recipes in Eating Well to Win will make it happen for you.
