Chef Michel Nischan does a side by side comparative analysis of an organically raised chicken, to a non-organically raised chicken. The results are astonishing.
Michel puts his healthful and sustainable culinary focus into print as a contributing editor for Food Arts Magazine, where he was a Silver Spoon Award honoree in 2006, and in two well-received cookbooks, Homegrown Pure and Simple: Great Healthy Food from Garden to Table (Chronicle Books, 2005) and Taste Pure and Simple: Irresistible Recipes for Good Food and Good Health (Chronicle Books, 2003). Taste made the New York Times and Wall Street Journal’s best seller lists and won a 2004 James Beard Foundation Cookbook Award, given by industry peers and more than 600 culinary professionals.
Most recently, his appearances on PBS Victory Garden were honored a 2007 James Beard Foundation Best National/Local TV Food Segment.
He also serves on the boards of the Amazon Conservation Team and Harvard’s Center for Health and the Global Environment. Michel lives in Fairfield CT with his wife, Lori and their five children.
