If you tuned in to Bravo‘s Top Chef Masters last week, you watched as Curtis Stone issued the contestants a challenge to cook healthy for the cast of NBC’s The Biggest Loser and now Curtis share’s his thoughts on the episode. Keep reading for more details!
That’s right, last week it was Top Chef Masters meet The Biggest Loser, as the contestants of Top Chef Masters had to cook up healthy dishes for the cast of The Biggest Loser. Curtis Stone blogged about it after the episode stating that challenge was close to his heart because “I have worked with The Biggest Loser for a number of years and have been personally invested in the transformation that these guys go through. I have watched some of them go from being extremely sick, unhappy, lonely, and depressed people to individuals that look great and have loads of self confidence. Watching them become healthy, happy, confident people has honestly been one of the most fulfilling parts of my career.”
Curtis goes on to say about the challenge “Let’s face it – weight loss is fifty percent food and fifty percent exercise. But it’s tough. My experience cooking for The Biggest Loser contestants was much more challenging than I ever thought possible. As a chef, the goal is always to make the food delicious and something people want to eat again and again. But working with calorie restrictions means you’re completely handicapped by not being able to cook with ingredients like fat, oil and butter, salt, and sugar. I know some of the chefs embraced this challenge and others hated it as they’ve never had to think about these kinds of things in their restaurants.” Maybe those looking to cook healthy need to take lessons from Curtis Stone, because he always seems to make it so simple looking!
