But cooking doesn't have to mired in tyranny, snobbery, binge eating triggers or even the bloodless grasp of controlled dieting.  After half my life spent dominated by food, now ingredients bends to my will and my vision for how beautiful this world can be if we embrace it. At any weight.

It's an honor to help foster those lessons in others and witness the resulting transformation (physical, culinary and otherwise). Sure, my food's colorful and peppy, but make no mistake -- cooking's implications on your life are immeasurably powerful.
