Never before has “La Dolce Vita” been more accessible, fun, or healthy!  Fred’s Italian Golden Palate (Palatto d’Oro) recipients describe Fred’s concept as a “nuova” or “new” kind of dolce vita, a contemporary take on the classic, highlighting lighter and healthier representations of the best life has to offer in dining and living. Fred’s empowering, revolutionary concept–that diet, weight loss, and a healthy lifestyle does not have to be bland or boring is the cornerstone for what will completely change the way people think about dieting and healthy living.

Fred’s upcoming book will be the first of its kind, showcasing the “Who’s Who” of gourmet weight loss with recipes and nutritional information from 75 of America’s top restaurants and is the first of a series of healthy gourmet lifestyle books Fred has planned. Fred’s international healthy, gourmet lifestyle concept is literally “Where Healthy Meets Gourmet!®”

Fred has also co-authored an exquisite regional, seasonal  Italian-American cookbook with his aunt, former restaurant owner, Alice Bollaci, which showcases many of their favorite family recipes, recipes from Fred and Alice’s extensive travels throughout Italy, and signature recipes from Alice’s restaurant. Their endeavor will showcase over 100 delectable recipes from many regions of Italy and will feature gorgeous color photos of food and many of Fred and Alice’s favorite destinations in Italy, and will be published in the near future, as a follow-up to Fred’s gourmet weight loss book, with an emphasis on fresh, quality ingredients and respect for tradition on both sides of the Atlantic.
