Overview

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.
