Miele New York Culinary Adventure

50BestRestaurantsAwards

Last month I had the honor of attending a New York Culinary Adventure which was hosted by Miele. Four of us were exposed to insider events and resources of culinary New York, which included the World’s 50 Best Restaurants Awards Gala. Our hosts planned a days-long feast for the senses that we will never forget. I’m still working off some of the incredible food we ate, and I can vouch that every bite was worth it.

Plenty, Vegetarian cookbook, Yotam Ottolenghi

So here we are, half a month into the new year, many of us having made health or diet related resolutions. Are you sticking to yours?  The owner of my old gym once told me that you can work out for hours every day at the gym, but if your eating is undisciplined, you are wasting your time. I believe him… so just to clear the air, that’s not why I don’t work out there anymore.  Today I want to share a cookbook that shifts healthy eating to a preferred alternative. Yotam Ottolenghi, the British restaurateur, chef, and cookbook writer, brings the upscale spa dining experience to your kitchen. That’s how eating at home should be.  Ottolenghi keeps healthy cuisine uncomplicated and delicious with 120 beautifully photographed recipes.
