[IP] Top chefs collaborate on free cookbook for people with diabetes

November 03, 2000

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Fifteen of America's top chefs, including Marcus 
Samuelsson of Aquavit restaurants in Minneapolis and New York City, have 
teamed up to produce a free cookbook that focuses on the importance of 
nutrition in managing diabetes.

The 96-page book, "Celebrity Chefs Across America -- The Ingredients for 
Managing Diabetes," features 53 diabetes-healthy regional and ethnic recipes 
for appetizers, entrees and desserts, illustrated with 22 photos. The book 
also includes information on resources and suggested meal plans.

The aim of the book is to show people with diabetes or those at risk of the 
disease that they can cook healthy and great-tasting meals at home.

Michel Nischan, executive chef at Heartbeat restaurant in New York City, took 
the initiative in organizing fellow chefs' contributions to the book and wrote 
the introduction. Anthony Dias Blue of Bon Appetit magazine wrote the text.

The American Association of Diabetes Educators, an organization of health care 
professionals that provides diabetes education and care, and SmithKline 
Beecham Pharmaceuticals helped develop the book.

Samuelsson contributed three recipes -- lamb chops with marinated vegetables, 
roasted chicken with spiced apples and onions, and steamed bass with carrot 
ginger broth.

Among other recipes in the book are Navajo green chili stew, roasted carrot 
soup with roma tomatoes, salmon with chanterelles and red pepper puree, and 
banana Napoleon with cocoa sauce.

The cookbook is available during November, American Diabetes Month, by calling 
toll-free (866) 482-2665
