The story of food is the story of humankind. Our personal food experience tells of our relationship with food, each other, and the world at large. But our stories are often muddled by the overwhelming amount of information, disinformation, and misinformation about how what we choose to eat affects our health and well-being. Perhaps at no other time in history has there been more confusion impacting our decisions regarding healthful food choices.
Chef Dr. Mike’s Practical Culinary Medicine
Because nutrition alone is not the answer, Chef Dr. Mike’s healthful approach stems from the eyes and palate of a true chef. His deep-seated love of food and keen medical awareness resulted in his exceptionally insightful approach to eating.
Chef Dr. Mike’s focus is on the individual—their roots and their relationships—as opposed to the one-size-fits-all “eat this, not that” approach. It is a blend of the Science of Medicine and Culinary Arts. Multidisciplinary, evidence-based science is the foundation, but it is not the whole package. Every lesson must return to the individual. That means learning to be comfortable with a degree of uncertainty in both Culinary Medicine and life. Chef Dr. Mike serves as the gateway between what “a body” needs and what your body needs. The ultimate goal is what we all seek: to simply be healthier and happier.
“Culinary Medicine is the multidisciplinary application of evidence-based decision making in the selection of ingredients and techniques used in preparing foodstuffs with a goal of achieving and maintaining health and wellness through an optimized food experience.”
– CHEF DR. MIKE
Relationships Define Your Life
The Food Experience: The Meal & The Weave
Our lives are our stories. Stories that come from the experiences we have in the relationships we forge. Collectively, our individual stories become the face of society and culture. With the wide lens of time those stories become the pages of history—the history of humankind.
