Bethenny Frankel Chef Profile
As an authority on achieving and maintaining a healthy and balanced lifestyle, I love making healthy food taste delicious. What had started out as a hobby turned into a lifelong career. Now I spend my days sharing my knowledge and passion for healthy living with others.
After graduating from the National Gourmet institute for Health and Culinary Arts, I put my culinary skills and drive to succeed to use by forming BethennyBakes®. BethennyBakes® ranges from a line of low fat, wheat, egg and dairy free baked goods, cooking services for private clients, and a custom meal delivery service. I've gained some recognition for my celebrity clients including Denis Leary, Alicia Silverstone, Susan Sarandon, Maria Menounos, Daisy Fuentes, and Mariska Hargitay (pre, during and post-pregnancy), to name a few.
The BethennyBakes® food line is launching in The Food Emporium and was selected to be sold in several nationwide chains such as Whole Foods, Target, Publix, and King Kullen, among others. My line speaks to the person who wants to be fit and healthy with no sacrifice in taste.
I'm a monthly contributor for Health Magazine writing her “Celebrity Diet Secrets”
column and am regularly featured in national publications as The New York Times, The New York Post, The Daily News, People, Us Weekly, Ok!, InStyle, Star, and several other print outlets. Additionally, I'm a food expert for the website Ehow.
I've also been on television quite a bit lately! As the “break-out star” and runner-up on NBC’s The Apprentice: Martha Stewart, I was praised by Martha Stewart for my talents both in the conference room and in the kitchen! I also star in the record-breaking Bravo Docu-Drama, “The Real Housewives of New York City."
I'm also a regular television expert for Health Magazine and have been featured on
numerous national shows including The Today Show, The Tyra Banks Show, The Martha Stewart Show, Extra, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight, and several regional and local news shows. I'm a regular guest on Sirius Radio shows Candace Bushnell’s Sex, Success, and Sensibility, The Judith Regan Show, and Out Q in the Morning with Larry Flick.
My goal is to “democratize health” by making a healthy and balanced lifestyle accessible to all. I currently reside in New York City with my dog, Cookie.
