Overview

Hollywood's celebrities expect only the best-especially when it comes to food. That's why they turn to Akasha Richmond, Hollywood's favorite healthy chef.

In Hollywood Dish, Akasha brings her A-list menus to the rest of us. She offers more than 150 recipes from her favorite experiences as a chef and caterer, including theme parties and holiday dinners for some of today's top stars and parties for MTV awards shows, the Sundance Film Festival, and the Grammy Awards. Mouthwatering but surprisingly simple recipes include Cinnamon French Toast with Pomegranate-Cherry Compote, Wild Salmon and Artichoke Salad with Green Tea Ranch Dressing, Pumpkin Seed Crusted Cod with White Peach Salsa, Short Ribs Braised with Chinese Flavors, Crispy Fruit Crumble, and Sundance Chocolate Torte-all deliver fresh, authentic flavor and are made with wholesome, tasty ingredients.

But Akasha offers more than just recipes. She is the authority on Hollywood's long-standing tradition of healthy eating. 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.

Now you, too, have the chef to Hollywood's A-list at your disposal. To create chic, healthy, delicious food, all you need is Akasha Richmond's Hollywood Dish.

Editorial Reviews

Washington Post
"When people on the Hollywood A-list want healthy but chic food at their parties, they call Akasha Richmond."
Pierce and Keely Brosnan
"Akasha combines a wealth of knowledge with artistic skill and real talent to create food that nourishes body and soul as well as the taste buds!"
Library Journal
Hollywood chef and caterer Richmond (The Art of Tofu) has created a cookbook that is both entertaining and informative. The kitschy layout uses titles from movies to organize the chapters and, in addition to over 150 recipes, is chock-full of health food history and famous names. Although a chapter is devoted to seafood, poultry, and meat, there is a heavy emphasis on vegetarian cooking-the author is a contributing editor to Vegetarian Times magazine-and many of the recipes could be adapted for a vegan diet. Ingredients such as spelt (a relative of wheat) and chia seeds (yes, like the pet) may not be easy to find outside of major metropolitan areas, but Richmond includes a list of mail-order resources. There are recipes for all occasions, and Richmond's easy manner and detailed instructions make it suitable for beginners. Purchase where interest in healthy cooking is high. Not to be confused with Nick Grippo's Hollywood Dish (1998).-Rosemarie Lewis, Broward Cty. P.L., Ft. Lauderdale, FL Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
