Author(s): Tony Chiodo
Feel Good Food is a modern, everyday cookbook with stylish recipes for every occasion. Trained in classical French and Italian cooking early on, author Tony Chiodo went on to study Ayurveda and yoga in India and Japan - inspiring further training in macrobiology and wholefoods. His recipes reflect a passion for this mix of East and West flavours and techniques. Try recipes such as baby leek and asparagus salad with miso dressing, or broccoli and green bean salad with lemon silken mayo. For fresh main dishes try seared tuna with sticky shitake sauce, stir-fried sesame chicken on green tea noodles or fried gingered rice noodles with prawns. If there's room for dessert indulge in a wholesome slice of carrot, cardamon and coconut cake or polenta, plum and almond torta.
Tony Chiodo worked as an apprentice at Mietta's in Melbourne with Jacques Reymond before studying at the Italian institute of traditional cuisine in Milan and working in some of Italy's top restaurants. He first became interested in natural foods while studying Ayurveda and yoga overseas, and after a stint at Wild Rice Wholefoods Caf , he embarked on his own wholefoods adventure with Caf Angelica in Kew, Melbourne. Tony is a qualified macrobiotic and wholefoods teacher, inspiring others to integrate natural foods into their daily lives through his Eating Well classes and regular articles in The Age's 'Epicure' and Australian Natural Health. His recipes have appeared in Vogue Entertaining + Travel, Vogue Living and Australian Gourmet Traveller. To see more of Tony's recipes and health tips visit www.eatingwelldaily.com.au.
