Art Smith's Healthy Comfort

How America's Favorite Celebrity Chef Got it Together, Lost Weight, and Reclaimed His Health!

This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device, and with iTunes on your computer. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Chef Art Smith puts the power of healthy living within your reach with these delicious dishes. Discover some of the great recipes he created on his journey to health and wellness, and then prepared for his celebrity clients.

Bestselling author, Top Chef favorite, and award-winning chef Art Smith was discovering new innovations in the kitchen, including his beloved cuisine of the South, but neglecting to take care of himself. So he decided to make a change in the way he ate without giving up the foods he loved. By reimagining his favorite dishes and making exercise a regular part of his life, he lost 120 pounds and transformed both his body and his health. Art always knew that fine cooking is a way to show love to others—but now he saw it as a way to show love to yourself.

Art can't resist bringing people together through food. It's partly what made him the success he is today—and his unique reimag-ining of classic comfort dishes has added to his wide appeal. After ten years as Oprah Winfrey's personal chef, Smith now cooks for special events for celebrities all over the world. He has been a contributing editor to O, the Oprah Magazine and has made numerous television appearances, including on ABC's A Very Lady Gaga Thanksgiving, Bravo's Top Chef Masters, and ABC's Nightline.

There's no doubt about it: Art Smith's Healthy Comfort is about great cooking and good eating. But Smith also shares his personal journey to good health—including delectable dishes such as Three Cheese Macaroni, Unfried Chicken, and Grilled Hanger Steak with Slow-Roasted Tomatoes that you just won't be able to resist.

Publishers Weekly Review

Jun 03, 2013 – Several years ago, when Smith "tipped the scales at 325 pounds," he signed on with a health coach who got him "walking, biking, and eating right." In this self-help-cookbook hybrid, the slimmed-down celebrity chef and restaurateur describes these successful recent shifts in his personal diet. Smith (Back to the Table) notes, "The most important word in my new, updated and powerful vocabulary is whole," and he reminds himself to eat "foods as close to their whole and most natural states" as possible, offering ideas and recipes here for dishes that are delicious and nutritious. Breakfast might mean steel-cut oats with Greek yogurt and blueberries, for example, or soft-poached eggs with a root vegetable hash. Lunch could be a bowl of yellow tomato gazpacho, three-bean turkey chili, or miso corn chowder. Salads and seafood feature prominently among his choices as well. Smith includes brief sections on everyday habits, too, giving common-sense advice on selecting cooking oils and healthy carbohydrates. And though name-dropping in the narrative (Oprah Winfrey is a client, President Obama is a Chicago neighbor) occasionally gets annoying, it does not detract from his overall goal: providing a practical framework for good, healthful eating.

Customer Reviews

No photos of the food?

Guess this doesn’t qualify as a review, but I bought the iPad version of the book and am surprised that the photos of the good are absent. Part of the joy of buying a cookbook is seeing what the food will look like when you’ve prepared it. What gives?
