The Cycling Chef: Recipes for Performance and Pleasure [9781472960023]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

A recipe book designed for cyclists, written by a Michelin-starred chef and champion athlete, who now cooks for British Cycling's elite athletes. This is flavoursome food to make you go faster. Michelin-starred chef, world champion athlete and leading sports nutritionist Alan Murchison presents more than 65 delicious, easy-to-make and nutritionally balanced meals to help cyclists of all levels reach their cycling performance goals. 'I can't think of a finer chef to have written a book on nutrition and diet for athletes... His drive and commitment to culinary precision is matched only by his passion and expertise.' Tom Kerridge Over 25 years of experience cooking in Michelin-starred restaurants, in combination with first-hand knowledge of elite sport from a competitor's perspective and experience of working with some of the world's best athletes, have given Alan Murchison an insight into the unique nutritional needs of cyclists. A good diet won't make a sub-standard cyclist into a world beater, but a poor diet can certainly make a world class or any ambitious cyclist sub-standard. However, an optimised diet, whatever your potential, will help you reach your own personal performance ceiling. Drawing on the author's Michelin-starred kitchen expertise, The Cycling Chef features more than 65 mouth-watering recipes - including breakfasts, salads, main meals, desserts and snacks, as well as vegetarian and vegan dishes - each designed with busy cyclists in mind. They can all be prepared and cooked in under 30 minutes and are made from ingredients available in a local supermarket.
AUTHOR: "Alan Murchison is a Michelin-starred chef with over 25 years' experience working in starred restaurants (he held a Michelin star for over a decade and had 4 AA Rosettes whist executive Chef at L'Ortolan restaurant in Berkshire), he is also a multiple World & European age group duathlon champion, national level master's cyclist & ex-international endurance runner. Alan Murchison provides bespoke nutritional support for athletes across a number of sports, although predominantly for cyclists. Alan is a consultant with British Cycling and works with athletes across a range of abilities from first timers looking to just complete an event to current Olympic gold medallists."
