Forks Over Knives – the book, the film, the movement – is back again in a cookbook. The secret is out: if you want to lose weight, lower your cholesterol, avoid cancer, and prevent (or even reverse) type 2 diabetes and heart disease, the right food is your best medicine. Thousands of people have cut out meat, dairy and oils and have seen amazing results.
Del Sroufe, the man behind some of the mouth-watering meals in the landmark documentary, proves that the Forks Over Knives philosophy is not about what you can’t eat, but what you can. Chef Del and his collaborators Julieanna Hever, Judy Micklewright, Darshana Thacker and Isa Chandra Moskowitz transform wholesome fruits, vegetables, grains, and legumes into hundreds of recipes – classic and unexpected, globally and seasonally inspired, and for every meal of the day, all through the year.
Del Sroufe has worked as chef and co-owner at Wellness Forum Foods for six years, a plant based meal delivery and catering service that emphasises healthy, minimally processed foods, produces a line of ‘in the bag mixes,’ and offers cooking classes to the public. He has worked in vegan and vegetarian kitchens for 22 years, including spending time as a vegan personal chef. He lives, works, and cooks in Columbus, OH.
