When I am looking for fresh and delicious recipes that focus on health and nutrition as well as culinary wonderment, I turn to Chef David Wells or Grandma Dave. I’ve known Dave more than twenty years and have enjoyed every moment of our friendship. During those years, I’ve watched in awe as he’s cultivated his passion as a chef into a business that also focuses on assisting people with any level of nutritional concern – from losing a few pounds to terminal cancer. Bottom line, he’s one of those incredible people who just makes your life better by knowing him.
As a chef, his resume is packed with impressive accomplishments . . . from his education and instruction at the nation’s finest culinary academies to his days as a personal chef for celebrities and powerhouse CEO’s. But what is truly impressive is his cross section of knowledge in nutrition, personal training and culinary arts.
This year he launched a new website that includes very informational step-by-step videos of his outstanding recipes. Please check it out and bookmark it to visit often. You’ll thank me for the recommendation. Also, look for his incredible line of organic spices and marinades at Whole Foods and other fine gourmet food retailers. If they don’t carry them. . . ask the Manager of the store to order products by Grandma Dave.
