New Diabetes Friendly Cookbook from Celebrity Chef Sam Talbot

November 9, 2011

Sam Talbot is currently the Executive Chef at the Surf Lodge in Montauk, NY and Imperial No. 9 in New York City. He was a semi-finalist and voted “Fan Favorite” by viewers during season 2 of Bravo’s “Top Chef.” Sam, who has lived with type 1 diabetes since the age of 12, has also been involved with the New York Chapter and is committed to helping raise awareness for JDRF and T1D because it rings so close to home for him.

His first book, The Sweet Life: Diabetes Without Boundarieswas released last week, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to JDRF. In his book, he recounts how diabetes has affected but not compromised his life or career, and he shares his own tips—alongside those from other famous diabetics like Halle Berry, Larry King, and Tommy Lee – on how to handle everything from work and hobbies to relationships and travel with discipline and enthusiasm.

To round out this advice, he offers bits of foodie wisdom and 75 innovative recipes for fresh, all-natural dishes anybody, diabetic or not, can prepare and enjoy.

The Sweet Life is a book aimed not only at diabetics but also at anyone who is health conscious, who doesn’t want to follow a fad diet but does want to eat great, real food on a regular basis. Sam will be doing more press to promote his book and raise awareness for T1D in the coming weeks.  Stay tuned for where you will see Sam next…

From Barnes & Noble,

Sam Talbot is a professional celebrity chef, restaurateur, surfer, painter, philanthropist, and, since the age of 12, type 1 diabetic. He even wears an insulin pump.  Yet he has not let the disease stop him from living a rich life packed with energy, adventure, and achievement—culinary and otherwise.

In The Sweet Life, he combines his expertise with his experience, delivering both numerous memorable personal stories about his condition and 75 original recipes for fresh, all-natural dishes that diabetics and non-diabetics can enjoy. More than a cookbook; more than a memoir.

Purchase the book at the Barnes & Noble website, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting JDRF.
