Holiday Recipes From Top Chefs

Chef Jennifer Stack

Jennifer Stack

Flavor-first Chef

After training at the Culinary Institute of America, Jennifer Stack, MS, RDN, CDE, was determined to create healthy meals that tasted delicious without sacrificing flavor. She perfected many recipes as a student and later as an associate professor at her alma mater. She also drew upon her years as a dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator in New York City, where she worked with many individuals living with diabetes on their dietary and nutritional needs. A collection of well-tested recipes is captured in her book, The Diabetes Friendly Kitchen, which includes more than 125 recipes, ranging from hearty meat entrees to vegetarian appetizers, Asian-inspired soups and desserts like dark chocolate-glazed oatmeal cookies. The book was inspired after Stack spent time in the world of “foodies” and noticed the lack of a flavor-first approach to cooking for those living with diabetes.
