Food is one thing we all share and its power is unmistakable.  I come from a “food first” perspective and have dedicated the last 40 years to learning about and perfecting my culinary skills.  From icing and serving countless donuts at my first summer job to sharing recipes with Pakistani chefs and entrepreneurs in Islamabad, I know how food can communicate ideas while impacting the environment, politics and, most importantly, our health.  

As a chef who is also interested in leaving our kids and grandkids a sustainable future, I see how food fits into just about every challenge we face.  Food is the common denominator running through the fabric of society:  culture, energy, art, science, the economy, national security, the environment, health, politics, diplomacy – you name it.

Health is our most cherished attribute, and what we eat has such an impact on our bodies.  However, so many of us don’t see the correlation.  Being that doctors and chefs are trusted more than other professionals in the US, I feel that we are in a unique position to educate and allure people towards a healthy lifestyle.  Let’s explore how we can do this together!
