Ed Levine 6 comments

Chef-restaurateur Tom Valenti of Ouest in New York City knows what delicious is better than most chefs I know. He's also a diabetic. In fact, he co-wrote a terrific cookbook, You Don't Have to be Diabetic to Love This Cookbook. So when he e-mailed me a couple of weeks ago asking if we wanted to post some Thanksgiving-appropriate recipes from the book we of course said yes. More

Tom Valenti Is a Mensch

Kudos to Foodie Obsessed for calling our attention to New York chef-restaurateur Tom Valenti's (Ouest and the forthcoming West Branch) appearance on the Today Show this past Thursday.

Tom is not only... More
