His new book, EAT WELL AND STAY SLIM, distills forty years of culinary and nutritional wisdom into an extraordinary compilation of gourmet recipes.
Blends of vegetable and fruit purées produce sauces of ethereal lightness—flavors are intense, nutritional values high. All recipes bear the gastronomic hallmarks of a three-Michelin-starred chef, yet main course dishes carry a calorie count of 240 calories or less.
