“Nathan will be here so come on out and say hello,” Rueffert said. “It’s a rare treat that he comes. He’s been a good friend and he and I do a lot of tag team cooking demos raising money for charities.”
Lyon’s cookbook, “Great Food Starts Fresh” was named in the top 50 of 2012. Host of Good Food America, chef and co-host of Growing A Greener World on PBS, Nathan was the creator and host of A Lyon in the Kitchen on Discovery Health. He was also among the final four on the second season of The Next Food Network Star and appeared as a guest chef on Home Made Simple and Real Simple Real Life, both on TLC. After graduating, Lyon backpacked his way across Europe, learning about local customs, culture, and cuisine. Although every town and country along Nathan’s journey provided its own culinary lesson, the watershed moment occurred in an outdoor market just outside of Florence, Italy: an old woman, agog at the massive amount of produce Nathan was stockpiling, eagerly asked, “Why are you buying so much food? Why not just buy fresh every day?” It was there in that market, clutching a wheel of cheese, that Lyon discovered his truth: great food starts fresh.
Lyon’s cookbook, Great Food Starts Fresh, is a seasonal cookbook featuring 135 recipes broken down into 5 seasons: spring, summer, autumn, winter, and … chocolate!
Come meet this interesting chef and author at the Woodbridge on May 28 from 5:30 – 7 pm.
“He is super-talented,” Rueffert said.
