Recipes are at the confluence of taste, nutrition, and the time we have available at each meal to make them. Here we focus on simplicity and speed using wholesome ingredients, while sometimes doing modern takes on classics from French, Asian and Latin cuisines. Some recipes also fit into lifestyle changes, such as plant-based nutrition, no-oil cooking, or lighter caloric programs. More information on my philosophy for cooking. My other recipes are available at, where I blog about food and wine with my wife Layla. She is an amazing cook and photographer and likes to take time to take mouthwatering photos of the dishes we make.
