About the Author

Chef Richard Ingraham was born and raised in Miami, Florida and became a culinary enthusiast at an early age. His culinary training took place at the Art Institute of Atlanta. A few years later, he was offered what is now his current position as private chef for the NBA's Dwyane Wade. He has been responsible for the diet that keeps the star fit, toned, and healthy on and off the court for the past thirteen years. In 2010, he leveraged his world-class training and passion for fine cuisine into a culinary-business partnership with Soley Gonzalez and created a network of private chefs called ChefRLI. The company has served dozens of NBA, NFL, MLB, and entertainment clients across the country. Some notable current and past clients include: BET, Sean Combs, Manny Machado, John Wall, Chris Bosh, Novack Djokovic, Kelly Rowland, GOYA Foods, POMI Italia, and Blake Griffin. In 2014, the company worked with celebrity-loved clothing line Peace Love World to create a line dedicated to foodies called Peace Love Cook. As GOYA Foods' My Plate Ambassador and Partner, Ingraham is also tasked with promoting alternative cooking methods to parents of school-aged children. Chef RLI also combined its charitable efforts with Beyond the Boroughs Scholarship Fund founder and NFL vet Tutan Reyes to provide healthier eating options to kids in New York City. The Ben and Sarah Gibson Culinary Scholarship was created as a result of the partnership to help high school graduates attend culinary school. Ingraham is also as advisory board member of the Miami Culinary Institute and Chef Start. And, he was selected for South Beach Food and Wine Festival's "The Best Thing I Ever Ate at the Beach."
Dwyane Wade is a guard for the NBA's Chicago Bulls. He began his career with the Miami Heat where he won three NBA championships. He's also a 12-time NBA All Star and led Team USA to a gold medal in the 2008 Olympics.


"Just when I think I knew of every healthy, tasty, fun way to make food, Rich shows me five more!" -AJ Johnson, actress
"Rich is one of those people who is fortunate enough to love what he does for a living, and it really truly shows. There's nothing he can't make whether it's chocolate chip pancakes from scratch with fresh fruit and whipped cream, to a full Easter extravaganza, to authentic down home southern comfort food, to an Italian feast fitting of white tablecloths and waiters in tuxedos. If I were on death row, the call I would make for my last meal would definitely be to Rich!" - Deirdre Maloney, entrepreneur, co-founder of BPMW, a full-service, fashion consultancy
"Never in my life have I tasted more delicious and flavorful food that's actually nutritious, as the meals exquisitely prepared by Chef Rich. As an actress, I have to eat meals that are low in fat and bad carbs that also give me enough energy to get through my day... Chef Rich does this like no one I've ever worked with before. He's simply amazing and the best around!" -Gabrielle Union, actress
From the Foreword "And those doggone cookies and red velvet cupcakes; they're too good and get me every time! I'm sure the recipes in the book will have you feeling the same way. Whether you're looking to plan a dinner party with friends and family or cook meals to keep you in shape, Rich will have you covered. Don't just perceive him as an "athlete's chef"...he is a diversified chef that can cook it all, for all. Rich puts his heart and soul into his dishes and I'm so glad he's now found a way to share it with the world!" - Dwayne Wade
