People are air frying more than ever these days, with 40% of U.S. households having the appliance in their home. If not cooked properly, air-fried food can be dry and bland, but Chef Gerard Viverito AKA “The Sustainable Chef” joined us today to share how to make your air fried food crispy and flavorful!
Chef G is a culinary instructor as the Director of Culinary Education for Passionfish, a NGO non-profit organization dedicated to educating people around the globe on the issue of sustainability in the seas. He is also the operator of Saveur Fine Catering, a company whose beliefs and products center on local, sustainable and organic foods. Chef G’s pantry is loaded with items commonly overlooked in the supermarkets, yet he has a thorough understanding of them and a passion to teach others how to cook more healthfully.
In addition, he has dedicated a large part of his career to what he terms “functional cooking.” This is where he adds nutritional ingredients to dishes to gain healthful results. He is well known for his ability to lower the glycemic index value of food, add omega fatty acids, and whole proteins to dishes without compromising the texture or taste. He appears regularly on radio and television programs demonstrating this as well as consulting clients on their dietary needs.
