She’ll talk about healthy snacking habits, including a multitasking Herbed Yogurt Spread that enlivens crudites and accents stews equally well.  Finally with Halibut Poached with Scallions and Miso, she will reveal a simple, elegant dinner that’s good enough for company.  The Class will include a personalized copy of the book, take home condiments like the Greenest Tahini Sauce and spiced pumpkin seed and cashew crunch. 

More about the book: 

Rather than vilifying food and the pleasures of eating, BON APPÉTIT: THE FOOD LOVER’S CLEANSE celebrates food as the key to good health.  It explores inherently healthful ingredients that are truly delicious.  Recipes are high in fruits, vegetables, and whole grains, with no refined flours, very limited dairy and saturated fats, and very little or no alcohol or coffee. Most importantly, the recipes focus on flavor, which is amplified wherever possible.   

BON APPÉTIT: THE FOOD LOVER’S CLEANSE extends the reach of the Food Lover’s Cleanse beyond winter, mapping out four different 2-week cleanse plans, one for each season, and includes 140 recipes. Driven by vivid flavors, a chic but approachable presentation, and unprocessed, seasonal ingredients, the cleanse follows the principle that delicious home-cooked meals are the best way to help readers develop healthy eating habits that continue well beyond the two-week program.
