About Miami Spice:

The Greater Miami Convention & Visitors Bureau organizes Miami Spice, a mouthwatering restaurant promotion that showcases the best of Miami cuisine. During August and September, restaurants offer three-course meals featuring signature dishes created by world-renowned chefs. It?s a tropical fusion of ingredients that makes Miami an epicurean paradise.

About Share Our Strength:

Share Our Strength began in the basement of a row house on Capitol Hill in 1984, in response to the ?84-?85 famine in Ethiopia. Brother and sister Bill and Debbie Shore started the organization with the belief that everyone has a strength to share in the global fight against hunger and poverty, and that in these shared strengths lie sustainable solutions. Today the cause focuses these strengths on making No Kid Hungry a reality in America. They?re ending childhood hunger by connecting kids to effective nutrition programs like school breakfast and summer meals. This work is accomplished through the No Kid Hungry network, made up of private citizens, government officials, business leaders, and others providing innovative hunger solutions in their communities. These partners work together, implementing solutions that break down the barriers that keep kids from healthy food. Through its Cooking Matters program, the No Kid Hungry campaign educates and empowers low-income families to stretch their food budgets so their kids get healthy meals at home. Cooking Matters participants learn to shop strategically, use nutrition information to make healthier food choices, and cook delicious, affordable meals. The No Kid Hungry campaign works to shine a national spotlight on the crisis of childhood hunger in America, creating a powerful movement of individuals committed to bold action. They build partnerships that enlist influential individuals in the cause and advocate policy changes needed to achieve their goals.

Famous Celebrity Chefs Focus on Cooking For A Healthier Lifestyle in 2015

New York, New York (PRWEB) January 21, 2015

The Holiday binge on food, snacks and desserts for most Americans is commonplace. This often means changing eating habits and diets to kick start a new, healthier lifestyle in the month of January. The leading corporate consulting agency for Celebrity Chef acquisition Celebrity Chef Network believes that prominent Celebrity Chef personalities are now the biggest contributors attempting to persuade Americans to take control of their health in 2015.

Celebrity Chefs have invaded Capitol Hill in the last week. Top Chef Judge and well-known Celebrity Chef Tom Colicchio and his Celebrity Chef confidant Jose Andres were present at several recent meetings with government officials to discuss GMO labeling and other public policies regarding important food issues. Celebrity Chef Colicchio?s presence is certainly being felt in Washington. He was reported as one of only a handful of VIP guests on hand for President Obama?s State of the Union Speech delivered on January 20. Both Colicchio, Andres, and several other famous Celebrity Chefs including Rachael Ray, Rocco DiSpirito, Nathan Lyon, Katie Lee and Mario Batali will use their social influence as food experts to help make it easier for Americans to make health-conscious decisions at the grocery store .

Still there are many other Celebrity Chefs who are taking a stance to promote healthy eating habits in the new year. The host of Food Network?s Cook Yourself Thin Candice Kumai and her latest cookbook of green drinks has introduced the public to over 100 clean, healthy drink recipes that contribute to a healthier lifestyle. Skinny Chef Jennifer Iserloh and The Hungry Girl Lisa Lillien both own and operate popular websites with hundreds of thousands of subscribers reading their blog posts and new recipes posted daily. Celebrity Chef Jamie Oliver has taken on the role of professor in 2015 to lead a new cooking class program being offered at Stanford University. The program will give students a hands-on learning experience in the kitchen while educating them about the importance of healthy eating habits.

A cornucopia of these Natural Foods Chefs and other Celebrity Chef personalities are now available for hire to share health tips, tricks and recipes at cooking demonstrations and other personal appearances across the globe this year. Celebrity Chefs have become leading health influencers heading into 2015 and there is no better time than now to hire a Celebrity Chef to transform your audience at an upcoming trade show, corporate conference or fundraiser.
