Join me as I kick off my new video series, Hot Body, Hot Kitchen, with SheKnows. I'll debunk a few diet myths and show you that the best way to eat is to focus on making good food no matter what your lifestyle. But don't worry — we've got some cheat day eats and quick and easy meals in store for you too, because this is real life. (And in real life, you don't need to worry about being "perfect" in the kitchen; the main focus is to just get in there and cook.) In my first video, I'm going paleo, but everyone will love this chili-glazed cod with spicy basil greens.
It always happened in the middle of a busy lunch service: I would be working on no less than 20 things, completely slammed with orders, and Jean Georges would gracefully waltz into the kitchen, holding a beautiful fillet of fish. He would lay it on my station and, with his charming way, say, “Look what a beautiful fish… When you have time, eh?” Which, in my head, translated to, “This is your boss and one of the greatest culinary legends of history. Move your ass and cook it now!” He would then proceed to stand at my station, pick up my knife and leisurely start chopping kale, Swiss chard or some other vegetable to accompany said fish. He moved with ease and elegance, as if he was born with a knife in his hand. He is a master of taking simple ingredients that by themselves were not very impressive and making masterpieces. This paleo-friendly dish is my homage to the many lunches I cooked for a legend.
