Episode 69: Eat What You Crave with Karen Akunowicz

At the core of Ellie’s food philosophy is that you can and should have food that is BOTH healthful and crave-ably delicious. There is no need to choose between the two. On this episode, Karen Akunowicz, named one of the “21 Badass Women Changing the Food World” by Marie Claire magazine, spills her best tips and tricks for giving food real crave-ability, and she and Ellie talk about why eating what you crave can be such a healthy thing to do.

Akunowicz won the James Beard Foundation Award for Best Chef Northeast, and has competed on Top Chef and on Food Network. She opened the celebrated restaurants Fox and the Knife and Bar Volpe in Boston. Her new book is Crave: Bold Recipes That Make You Want Seconds.
