Our founder and head chef, Marco Canora, had the pleasure of speaking with New York Times bestselling author Tim Ferriss on a subject that they’re both passionate about: food and nutrition. This is not a new prodcast episode but if you haven’t listened to it, you’ll definitely want to!
Tim Ferriss: Bestselling Author and Nutrition Nerd
For some background, Ferriss is best known for his book The 4-Hour Workweek. He shares his secrets to productivity and getting the most out of life in this captivating read. Riding on the success of this book, Ferriss decided to write two other bestselling books, The 4-Hour Body and The 4-Hour Chef. A major aspect of The 4-Hour Body is the Slow Carb Diet which Ferriss designed to burn fat. It boils down to mostly staying away from grains and starchy vegetables. However there is no calorie counting involved. Bone broth fits very well into this diet especially since it’s a good source of protein and zero carbs.
Eating, Nutrition, and Life
We won’t give too much away, but as you can imagine, Tim and Marco have a lot to talk about! Tim has a talent for getting his interviewees to open up and get to a deeper level, while still throwing plenty of humor into the mix.
In this podcast you will hear about Marco Canora’s early cooking days, how he rose to the top at some of the best kitchens in NYC, and how he has come to own Hearth as a James Beard award-winning chef.
As many of you know, the journey doesn’t stop there! Marco had a scary wake-up call about his own health which lead him to prioritize healthy eating. Bone broth had always played a huge role in Marco’s cooking, but his newfound emphasis on health brought it to the forefront of his diet. Reversing several health problems by drinking bone broth inspired him to share it with the world.
