Meet "Dr. Gourmet"

Timothy Harlan is a trained chef and practicing physician. (Naturally, he practices in New Orleans!)

At his site, Dr. Gourmet, he offers recipes and advice:
Working as a caterer throughout [Emory Medical] school, he continued to be involved with food and cooking but noticed a lack of knowledge in the medical field about eating healthy and eating well. Neither patients nor health care providers understood much about a healthful diet. Patients, it seemed, were usually told not what they could eat but, rather, what they could not eat.
Indeed. Aside from registered dietitians--and they are, pardon the expression, thin on the ground--very few medical folks seem to have solid medical-nutritional chops. I've bookmarked the site and plan to try some of the recipes.
