Cooking for the Gastric Cancer Foundation

Tonight, I had the good fortune to cook with my brother and fellow Next Food Network Star competitor, Hans Rueffert. Hans is chef and co-owner (with his lovely wife) of the Woodbridge Inn in Jasper, Georgia, (if you are ever near – you must go – quaint, beautiful and delicious food, of course) author of the cookbook “Eat Like There’s No Tomorrow” (a steal at only $25!), father of 2 fantastic kids (and 1 more on the way) and is a gastric cancer survivor. Hard core. He is also a health and nutrition coach, chef/teacher, advisor, mentor, and inspiration/coach for others…  definitely one of the most generous people I know. He is close friend and was even there to support Super Sous’ mom when she fought cancer last year. A true genuine hearted person.

So, it was a huge honor (and a blast) for me to cook with him tonight for a Gastric Cancer Foundation private dinner in San Francisco. Here we are serving up the soup course: Summer Corn Soup with Chanterelles, Creme Fraiche and Basil Pesto.

And my Mixed Berry Crostata – how much more summer can you get?!

Today, while at the gym, Super Sous and I saw a commercial for Pizza Hut’s new 8-inch cookie pizza for $6. (That’s 8 large slices of cookie!) They say that’s what the millennials want. But I believe delicious, home cooked, fresh food is the future… So, we are starting the Fresh Foods Diet. That’s ALL the fresh foods you want, whenever you want them. And it comes with a great price – to your wallet and your health. Who’s in?!‪#‎freshfoodsdiet‬
