Things get started with Ingrid Hoffmann who has partnered with the American Diabetes Association to publish “Latin Comfort Foods Made Healthy (Clásicos latinos a lo saludable): More than 100 diabetes-friendly Latin favorites”. The book celebrates the joys of cooking and eating healthier versions of traditional Latin recipes bursting with flavor while staying within the nutritional guidelines of the ADA and relying on Ingrid’s concept of delicious, easy, and simple recipes with a healthy twist. Raised in Colombia and the Netherlands, Ingrid Hoffmann is a professional eater, author and host of Top ChefEstrellas (Telemundo, NBC), Simply, Delicioso (Cooking Channel) and Delicioso(Univision) is passionate about cooking, entertaining, and helping her fans lead a healthy and balanced lifestyle. Via her cookbooks, “chica tips” and social media platforms, Ingrid hopes to educate her followers about “better for you” ingredients, implementing cooking habits and to think of food as medicine. With this in mind, in 2015, Ingrid launched her very own food brand, Cocina by Ingrid Hoffmann, which focuses on easy, delicious and healthy meal solutions for the family. She writes a monthly column for Delta Air Lines Delta Sky Magazine and AARP en Español and is a frequent guest of shows like Un Nuevo Día, The Talk, Oprah, Martha Stewart, The View, The Today Show, The Early Show, and The Wendy Williams Show.
Then we talk to Dorie Greenspan who has a new book “Everyday Dorie: The Way I Cook” from Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt being released October 23rd and available for pre-order on Amazon.com. To the hundreds of thousands who follow her on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook, Dorie Greenspan’s food is powerfully cookable—her recipes instant classics. In Everyday Dorie, she invites readers into her kitchen to savor the dishes that she makes all the time, from Miso-Glazed Salmon to Lemon Goop. What makes a “Dorie recipe”? Each one has a small surprise that makes it special. The dishes are practical, made with common ingredients from the supermarket, farmers’ market, or pantry, like Sweet Chili Chicken Thighs, which is both weeknight simple and fine enough for company, and Eton Mess, a beautifully casual dessert of crumbled meringue, fruit, and whipped cream. They are easygoing, providing swaps and substitutions. They invite mixing and matching. Many can be served as dinner, or as a side dish, or as an appetizer, or hot, cold, or room temperature. And every single one is like a best friend in the kitchen, full of Dorie’s infectious love of cooking and her trademark hand-holding directions. Inducted into the James Beard Foundation’s Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America, Dorie Greenspan is also the author of Dorie's Cookies, a 2017 James Beard Award-winner for Best Baking and Dessert book; Around My French Table, a New York Times bestseller that was named Cookbook of the Year by the IACP: The International Association of Culinary Professionals, Baking Chez Moi, also a Times bestseller; and Baking: From My Home to Yours, another James Beard Award winner.

Last, but certainly not least we are thrilled to welcome Steven Cook the co-author of new cookbook “Israeli Soul: Easy, Essential, Delicious” from Rux Martin/Houghton Mifflin Harcourt. Usually served from tiny eateries, hole-in-the-wall restaurants, or market stalls, these food specialties have passed from father to son or mother to daughter for generations. To find the best versions, the authors Michael Solomonov and Steven Cook scoured bustling cities like Tel Aviv, Jerusalem, and Haifa, and sleepy towns on mountaintops. They visited bakeries, juice carts, beaches, even weddings. Their finds include meals in the hand like falafel and pita; juicy, grilled and roasted spice-rubbed meats; stuffed vegetables; a wealth of chopped vegetable salads; a five-minute fluffy hummus with more than two dozen toppings; pastries, ice creams, and shakes and adapted every recipe for the home kitchen. Each chapter weaves history with contemporary portrayals of the food. Striking photographs capture all its flavor and vitality, while step-by-step how-to and close-ups of finished dishes make everything simple and accessible. Steven Cook is the co-founder of CookNSolo Restaurant Partners. He is the co-author of Zahav: A World of Israeli Cooking, winner of two James Beard Awards in 2016 for "Best International Cookbook" and "Book of the Year".
