Good Fat Cooking: Recipes for a Flavor-Packed, Healthy Life by Franklin Becker
When chef Franklin Becker was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at the age of twenty-seven, he dedicated his career to finding the best ways to make healthy, flavorful food. Since then, Becker has won the New York City Wine & Food Festival’s Burger Bash, been featured on shows like Iron Chef America, The Today Show, Top Chef Masters, and Dr. Oz, and published the books “The Diabetic Chef” and “Eat & Beat Diabetes.” He also co-founded The Little Beet, a gluten-free, quick service Manhattan lunch spot, and The Little Beat Table its full service restaurant counterpart.
In his new book, “Good Fat Cooking: Recipes for a Flavor-Packed, Healthy Life,” written with award-winning food writer Peter Kaminsky, Becker brings us a collection of recipes highlighting good fats—from sources such as nut oils, olive oil, fish, and avocados. From Acorn Soup with Pistachios to avocado ice cream, these new recipes will remind everyone that cooking with good fats is a smart and tasty choice.
