Grace O launched her third cookbook, Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World, in style with an upscale party held at Saks in Beverly Hills. Amidst friends, fans, and designer dresses, Grace signed copies of her book for eager partygoers including NBA star and former Laker Robert Horry and his wife Candice.
TV host and producer Robb Weller announced Grace’s generous donation of a $300,000 research award to support the Center for Integrated Research in Cancer and Lifestyle (CIRCL) at Cedars-Sinai. The gift will provide for research on inflammation and the diseases of aging, and the role nutrition and lifestyle can play to prevent and/or minimize inflammatory disease. Laura Asok, Ph.D., Senior Major Gift Officer for Cedars-Sinai and Alex Mack, Program Manager for the CIRCL program at Cedars-Sinai were on hand to receive an oversized check from Grace O.
The research dovetails nicely with Grace’s mission to promote better health through eating nutrient-rich foods. Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World features 250 easy-to-make recipes using everyday favorites, exotic ingredients, and superfoods from around the world. It also includes healthy resources, guides, and tips for improving your lifespan and health span. Grace’s global approach to her age-fighting recipes is to ramp up the flavor profiles of each dish to entice food lovers everywhere.
Some of the delicious anti-aging recipes found in the cookbook were served at the party including Vietnamese Shrimp & Noodle Salad, Aztec Berry Salad with Lemon Chia Dressing, Cuban Black Bean and Corn Salad, Barcelona Flatbread with Grapes & Blue Cheese, Indian Chai Tea & Plum Bread, African Dawadawa Cake, and Moroccan Brownie Bites.

All proceeds from the sales of the cookbook will be donated to the Grace O Foundation, wch supports educating the public about nutrition, working with other food-based non-profits, and participating in research that explores food and the diseases of aging, such as with Cedars Sinai. Anti-Aging Dishes from Around the World is available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble.com.
