About the Author

Robert Surles, aka Chef Bobo, has held many distinguished cooking positions including:
  • Chef instructor at the French Culinary Institute in New York City;
  • Corporate chef at IMG, a sports marketing and management company;
  • Official chef at the Krewe of Orpheus in New Orleans, a Mardi Gras parade group founded by jazz musician and entertainer Harry Connick Jr.;
  • Personal chef for baseball star Derek Jeter;
  • School chef for the Calhoun School in Manhattan, NY.
Chef Bobo believes the best way to ensure that adults eat well is to develop an appetite for healthy foods early in life. His recipes feature nutritious food with bold flavor. At Calhoun School, where he also teaches at an after-school cooking club for students, his culinary skills are transforming the way kids think about and eat food. Some the most popular items at Calhoun School are steamed broccoli and rutabaga fries. Kids want their parents to serve them the same food they get at school so Chef Bobo often sends recipes home.

Expert culinary teacher Chef Bobo has proven his talent by personally demonstrating to more than 500 children, ranging in temperament from skeptical to finicky, that simple, healthy food can taste great and satisfy a hearty appetite. Chef Bobo's Good Food Cookbook is a recipe book designed especially to help parents create healty and delicious meals for their young ones, but the basic recipes within work wonders for the eating habits of all ages. The importance of instilling good eating habits at a young age cannot be stressed enough, and Chef Bobo's Good Food Cookbook features such great dishes as Chunky Vegetable Soup, Chicken Cacciatora, Rutabaga Fries, Banana Sorbet, and more. In a nation oversaturated with junk food, fast food, soda, store bought cookies and salad dressing with unnecessary fat and calories, canned soups with unhealthy levels of salt, and worse, the need for an easy-to-follow, health living meal guides like Chef Bobo's Good Food Cookbook has never been greater.

My husband kept his little-boy attitude of "I haven't had it before, I don't like it." I like chinese, italian, thai, morrocan, mexican, persian, you get the idea. My husband likes spaghetti, mac n cheese, chili, and burgers. Until Chef Bobo. Instead of "That smells funny, what is it?" I'm getting "wow that smells good!" Then I'll try something from a persian cookbook and I'll hear "that smells kinda like that Chef Bobo thing you did last week..... I think I like it." YES! Chef Bobo's recipes are good, filling, and healthy. I love the stories around each recipe. And I haven't met a Chef Bobo recipe yet that doesn't pass the ultimate test - it reheats well.

I bought this book after hearing an interview on NPR with Chef Bobo. He talked about the mission of this private school in Manhattan to create healthy meals for their kids. He stressed that costs were comparable to the USDA issued foods most of our public school students eat daily. That aside, his recipes are great. Try the garlic chicken with cilantro, the scallops, the guacamole, the cauliflower soup. These recipes have been favorites of my family in terms of great flavor, available ingredients, quick preparation and great nutrition (in the not boring way). Surprisingly, my least favorite is his treatment of vegetables. They are a little soggy for my taste, but I do like a nice sauted veggie. Also, I cannot comment on his sandwiches because I haven't tried them. No kidding, this is my best cookbook score yet, and, if you have kids with any kind of adventurous spirit, go for this book. As for the scallops, they are awesome. He said his reviewer said they made her want to cry...pretty damn close.

I just love this book! As a mother of 2 boys and a Holistic Health Counselor to many families as well as individuals, this book has been a great resource. The recipes are easy to make and delicious. People of all ages enjoy the food and the children are having fun helping to prepare meals. Thank you Chef Bobo for what you are doing in the school and now sharing it with the world at large. I am buying copies for many people and I hope that more people will become aware of your work and that of your assistants.

The cookbook equivalent to all my favorite CDs and books -- the ones you loan out and never get back. It's okay because you're spreading the good news! I first bought it because I had a picky 6 yr old. Now, *ahem* some years later, we use it for our bonus child of 4.5, and for ourselves! This is NOT just for parents, though it is fast, easy, and healthy. Everything in it is delicious, everything in it is easy, and it uses (and teaches, BTW) great technique. We're a Chef Bobo family for life!

I purhcased this book two years ago for my then 13 year old daughter (an extremely "picky" eater) in the hope that she would expand her food horizons. In my wildest dreams I wouldn't have expected this to work so well. She has made several of these tasty dishes for the family and we all love them. We're vegetarians and we have discovered many delicious recipies in this wonderful cookbook. One of our favorites is the "Carrot Ginger Soup" recipe. If you enjoy cooking healthful, tasty meals from simple, unprocessed foods you will be pleased with this book. Thank you, Chef Bobo!
