Product Description
 
Growing up as a first-generation Indian-American in Louisville, Kentucky, Akhtar’s childhood was filled with hearty Indian meals – kormas, keemas, roti – and classic Southern comfort foods. As an adult, Akhtar had lost weight, but his eating habits were subject to the demands of high-octane restaurant kitchens, from Gramercy Tavern to Craft. As Tom Colicchio’s right-hand man for more than a decade (and an early mentor to David Chang), Akhtar put his career first and his health second. After reassessing his priorities and recalibrating his lifestyle, Akhtar finally put his diet in order and started cooking with greater purpose. Now, with 20 years of experience and a number of successful restaurants (Alta Calidad, Prather’s on the Alley, Otra Vez), Akhtar has created a cookbook that proves anyone can cook hearty, flavourful meals that are still good for you. Highlighting his diverse and deep knowledge of multiple cuisines, Good For You contains 100 healthy dishes that draw inspiration from Indian spices, Mexican sauces, Italian seasonings, and a range of international flavours and techniques to make diet-friendly meals actually taste good.Growing up as a first-generation Indian-American in Louisville, Kentucky, Akhtar’s childhood was filled with hearty Indian meals – kormas, keemas, roti – and classic Southern comfort foods.
