About the Author
Chef Richard Ingraham is a Miami native who became a culinary enthusiast at an early age. He trained at the Art Institute of Atlanta, and within a few years he was offered the position of Private Chef for Dwyane and Gabrielle Wade. He has been responsible for the nutritional diet that keeps the celebrity couple fit, toned, and healthy.
In 2010, Chef Rich leveraged his world-class training and passion for fine cuisine into a culinary-business partnership 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, Yonder Alonso, Manny Machado, Olivier Vernon, John Wall, Gregor Blanco, Chris Bosh, Novack Djokovic, Kelly Rowland, GOYA Foods, POMI Italia, National Pork Board and Demarcus Cousins.
Ingraham joined Michelle Bernstein and Michael Schwartz in former First Lady Michelle Obama's Chefs Move 2 Schools White House Initiative to encourage healthier eating habits. As GOYA Foods' My Plate Ambassador and Partner Chef he is tasked with promoting alternative cooking methods to parents of school-aged children. ChefRLI 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.
"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 and 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 have 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
"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, former professional American basketball player
