As a private chef to the rich and famous for more than 30 years, Alan Roettinger has learned a lot about what people hunger for, and what satisfies. It’s more than just food to fill our bellies. We crave fulfillment on every level, and his approach to food and cooking aims to deliver it in as many ways as possible. In Extraordinary Vegan, Alan opens the door to a new paradigm of eating. He’ll show you how easy it is to make food designed to support health, thrill the senses, surprise the imagination, entertain the intellect—even nourish the heart.
v Learn how—and why—to lavish attention on the food you prepare, to the delight of everyone who eats it.
v Discover extraordinary ingredients that enhance everyday dishes with layers of unexpected flavors.
v Experience a sense of satisfaction and pride from creating extraordinary food.
This is food to cross barriers, food for food lovers—vegans, omnivores—all are welcome!
Quick, easy recipes with a gourmet twist. I wrote this book for an omnivore’s palate (I was in transition at the time), meaning that all of the recipes should appeal to both vegans and non-vegans. The beauty of this is twofold: 1) vegans can entertain (even wow), their non-vegan friends and family members, and 2) non-vegans may find themselves enjoying vegan food, and possibly starting their journey to a more conscious, compassionate diet.
Omega 3 Cuisine:
The facts are in.
Over 30 years of published research has established that Omega-3 fats are indispensable to human health. They are responsible for the structure and proper function of every single cell in the human body.
Omega 3 Fats:
• Protect us from degenerative diseases and promote vitality
• Help lower bad cholesterol and burn body fat
• Improve brain function
• Make skin soft, hair shiny and eyes sharp
• Hasten healing and reduce inflammation
• Help us recover more quickly from fatigue
• Boost stamina and improve athletic performance.
The list goes on.
We literally cannot live without them.
In Omega-3 Cuisine, the benefits of essential fats and the pleasures of delicious eating are brought together by Udo Erasmus, health expert, and Alan Roettinger, flavor expert. It’s no secret that fat makes food taste good; it’s common knowledge. Sadly, we’ve been fed the myth that fat is bad for us and that we must avoid it in order to prevent disease. The truth is that while refined, heavily processed oils and trans-fats are harmful, essential fats are, well, essential. Here’s the good news: by choosing the right fats, we can literally feast our way to optimum health.
Udo Erasmus, author of the bestseller Fats that Heal Fats that Kill, is an international authority on fats and health. He developed formulas for oil blends that provide all the good fats and no harmful ones. Derived from organically grown plant sources, Udo’s Oil™ 3•6•9 Blends are made in a way that protects fragile omega-3 fats from heat, light, and oxygen. Setting six standards for production and quality, his oil blends are by far the best source of healthy essential fats. Udo’s Oil™ can be found in the refrigerated section of natural food stores.

Alan Roettinger, private chef to the stars for 25 years, was introduced to Udo’s Oil by his doctor, who recommended it for cardiovascular benefits. Obediently, Alan took the prescribed daily dose of two tablespoons–for about 3 days (who chugs oil from a spoon?). Eventually, he threw out the bottle and forgot all about it.
Several years later, Alan was introduced to Udo by a mutual friend, and the subject of a cookbook using Udo’s Oil came up. Alan accepted the challenge of creating recipes that adhere to Udo’s specifications–like never heating the oil–and combine the benefits of essential fats with the pleasure of eating. After a few months of developing (and eating) different dishes, Alan realized that several health problems, including joint pain, dry skin and chronic fatigue, had simply vanished. Not only that, his “bad” cholesterol plummeted and has been on a steady decline ever since. You can’t get a better testimonial than a cook who got healthy without even trying!
This is Omega-3 Cuisine–a way for people to actually improve their health by enjoying delicious food. It’s a no-brainer. Finally, you can fearlessly indulge yourself. This is what Udo calls the Right Fat Diet, and you’re going to love being on it!
A Modern Woman’s Pillow Book
A collection of erotic love poems by Alan Roettinger, originally created as an intimate gift for his wife. This unique book evokes the passion between a man and a woman and glorifies the beauty of deep, enduring love. It is the voice of a man speaking to the woman he loves, expressing in a lyrical form what men might feel, but rarely vocalize.
Elegantly bound in burgundy-red Japanese silk, the individual poems are separated by gossamer vellum pages, decorated with a white-on-white pattern of birds and flowers. This is the perfect gift for a woman (and man) in love.
Modern humans have the attention span of a sound bite. If you’re going to make a point, you’ve got to make it fast. If you want it to actually stick, you have to stop people in their tracks, whether by making them laugh, or cry, or think for at least a second how true your remark is—for them. Oddly enough, the busier they are, the more they appreciate being stopped this way. Maybe they’ve been longing for all their frantic activity to cease—even for a moment.
Wise Cracks does exactly that. One observation to a page, each captures an important understanding about life and living we all inherently have, whether we’re aware of it or not. Maybe we’ve never really given it much thought; maybe we have thought about it, but in all our racing around, forgotten. Whatever our circumstance may be, when we hear or read a wise remark, something clicks. We like it. It’s as if we’ve been thirsting for some wisdom and getting even a snippet is deeply satisfying. That’s why proverbs don’t die out—even the strange ones that no one really “gets” anymore.
Wise Cracks combines common sense wisdom, deep insight and engaging wit in a quick read, for the attention-deficient modern human being.
