I am a Self Taught chef and Food Book Author working with endurance athletes, mostly in the world of Pro Cycling. I work regularly with the top cyclists in the world as they get ready or are competing at major events including the Tour De France and the upcoming 2012 Olympics.
I am 42, born in Kerala India, grew up racing bikes in CO starting when i was 15. At the same time started working in kitchens, making toast and washing dishes at a nursing home. I've had a few lives along the way, including a long span in construction while I cooked for free to help athletes and teams..before there was any money in it for me.
My food is based on the idea of making the best possible food with very little time and resources. Fresh, colorful, healthy, nutrient dense and always Flavor is King ! Sometimes It's whole foods, sometimes its 7-11, but always the food has to get my athletes across the finish line first.
which is why I'm putting butter onto a cookie for RedBull athlete Tim Johnson in the above pic !!
the Guy in Red Singing is Taylor Phinney, Rising Star of US cycling, Multiple World Record Holder and Currently preparing for two events at London.
thank you !
