9780297843092: The Marathon Chef: Food for Getting Fit

As head chef at London's famous Le Gavroche restaurant and an eight-time marathon runner (New York and London), Michel Roux, Jr. knows how food affects the body's ability to perform at its peak. He discusses that vital link and provides 100 utterly delicious, nutritionally sound recipes, including such treats as Watermelon and Papaya Wakeup Juice, Grilled Tiger Prawns with Cucumber Salad and Pistachio Yogurt Dressing, and Warm Chocolate and Honey Cake, all created to help sustain the body over a 26-mile run, as well as during the long months of training leading up to the race. Roux tells you what not to eat the night before a marathon, including why the traditional "pasta party" may be wrong for your body, and offers a selection of sensational recipes for breakfast, main courses, breads, pasta and rice, and desserts, each sure to leave you strong, alert and full of energy.

About the Author:

Michel Roux Jr is one of London's most respected chefs. Le Gavroche, the restaurant which he has run since 1994, continues to receive recommendations for excellence in every food guide.

Review:

'Who for: Keep-fit junkies and gourmets in need of lean food. Why: Anything that addresses how to eat well and keep fit is worth buying. The look: Classic modern cook book with beautiful food shots and some mandatory chef shots of M Roux Jr in jogging shorts. The cooking: Chic, low fat French food ranging from baguette toast with olive oil, extra bitter chocolate and sea salt (snack attack) to calves liver with iwld mushrooms and sweet and sour onion (main course).'
