Akasha has been a true pioneer for healthy organic cooking in Los Angeles for years. Back in the day I worked with Akasha who entrusted me to run her kitchen for the big Hollywood parties that she is known for. Over the years not only have we worked together many times but we’ve also established a great friendship. I was honored when she asked me to do a recipe for her book as I’ve always been a great admirer of hers.
Holllywood Dish offers more than just recipes. From the early health-food pioneers to today’s healthy-living trailblazers, she weaves a fascinating history of food trends, stars, and events that have made Hollywood the health capital of the world. With each recipe, she shares the nutritious culinary habits of the stars of the silver screen, including Greta Garbo, Cary Grant, and Gloria Swanson, as well as today’s hottest celebrities, like Madonna, Tom Cruise, and Tobey Maguire.
