(Newport Beach, CA) Long a best-selling author, Dr. Andrew Weil will speak and sign his latest book TRUE FOOD on Nov. 12th from 5-6:30 PM at Barnes & Noble, Fashion Island.
Working with James Beard Award–nominated restaurateur Sam Fox, Dr. Weil opened the first True Food Kitchen restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona, with the goal of creating a menu of freshly imagined meals centered on the principles of his Anti-Inflammatory Diet and Food Pyramid.
The restaurant has garnered the reputation of being one of the country’s healthiest, and has become known for its use of organic and locally grown products as well as seasonal menu changes.
Since its launch, True Food Kitchen has opened three additional locations in Arizona and California, with the long-term goal of a national rollout, which will include Denver, Colorado, this fall, and many other cities over the next couple of years.
Now Dr. Weil, Sam Fox, and executive chef Michael Stebner have collected more than 125 recipes from their restaurant in TRUE FOOD: Seasonal, Sustainable, Simple, Pure (Little, Brown and Company; October 9, 2012; $29.99). At-home cooks now have the opportunity to prepare a wide array of healthy, delicious dishes at home, including:
Curried Cauliflower Soup
Spicy Shrimp and Asian Noodles
Bison Umami Burger
Chocolate Icebox Tart
Andrew Weil, MD, is the founder and director of the Arizona Center for Integrative Medicine and a partner in True Food Kitchen. He is the author of several bestselling books, including Spontaneous Happiness, The Healthy Kitchen (coauthored with Rosie Daley), Healthy Aging, 8 Weeks to Optimum Health, and Spontaneous Healing. He lives in Tucson.
In addition to these easy-to-follow recipes, TRUE FOOD features accompanying essays on relevant topics, ranging from farmers’ markets and proper proportions to identifying true whole grains and the lifelong benefits of following an anti-inflammatory diet.
Heartily endorsed by the food gurus Alice Waters and Marion Nestle, TRUE FOOD reinforces the restaurant’s mission of preparing mouthwatering food that promotes personal and emotional well-being and demonstrates that it’s easier than you think to nourish your body, mind, and spirit right in your own kitchen!
