About the Author

Andrea Strong is a Brooklyn-based journalist and cookbook author.


Akhtar Nawab is one of the best chefs in America. His book is full of insanely delicious and ingenious ways to cook food that makes you feel good. We're lucky to have it. -David Chang, chef and founder, Momofuku

I can't wait to make all these beautiful dishes! Akhtar can masterfully cook anything. Good for You is a thoughtful collection of modern, delicious recipes full of flavor and punch, born of Akhtar's vast and varied career. This book teaches us to be good to ourselves while celebrating great ingredients and rich culinary traditions. Keep it close, use it often.

-Loretta Keller, chef and restaurateur, San Francisco

Akhtar has an uncanny ability to apply his technical skills to a myriad of cuisines-Indian, Mexican, seasonal American-and his food is always addictively delicious AND nourishing. Good for You is a reflection of this inimitable talent: here is a must-have collection of flavorful, healthful recipes that home cooks can make any day of the week. -Marco Canora, chef and founder, Hearth, Brodo Broth Company, and Zadie's Oyster Room

"While working as a makeup artist, I've been responsible for making women (and men) look and feel their best. And while I know the power of a good concealer or red lipstick, what goes into your body has an even bigger impact on how we look on the outside.

Akhtar Nawab proved to me that healthy food doesn't have to be bland and flavorless. It doesn't have to be boring. He's infused his recipes with a rich combination of spices and flavors that reflect his Indian heritage and diverse culinary background. I immediately fell in love with his vision of food that is good for you while also tasting delicious." - Bobbi Brown, from the foreword
