Fred Bollaci Enterprises Announces 200 U.S. Golden Palate Partners for 2015: The Finest in ‘Dolce Vita’ Healthy Gourmet Dining and Living From Coast to Coast!

Golden Palate Partner

New York, NY and Palm Beach, FL Fred Bollaci, CEO and President of Fred Bollaci Enterprises, the definitive international healthy, gourmet lifestyle authority, food, wine, travel, and fitness expert has announced 200 Golden Palate Partners representing key U.S. markets, representing the “who’s who” of restaurants, hotels, spas, and B&B’s nationwide, based upon his extensive travels in 2014, it was announced today.

“In growing my brand and name to appeal to audiences across the United States, I am taking the opportunity to award my newest Golden Palate Partners, all of whom have received the coveted Fred Bollaci Enterprises Golden Palate Certificate of Excellence for 2015, and will be given the opportunity to take advantage of Signature and Charter Golden Palate Membership, which a number of esteemed establishments and astute proprietors already have.” Many of these amazing establishments are going to be featured with recipes, complete with nutritional analysis in my upcoming book, “The Golden Palate Diet and Lifestyle: Your Life. Your Way. Gourmet! ™”

Bollaci’s book is slated to be the first of its kind, recognizing a healthy gourmet lifestyle as the best way to ensure lasting weight loss and healthy lifestyle success. The featured Golden Palate Partner restaurants have been hand-picked by Bollaci as his favorites nationwide. “My goal is to show that losing weight and adopting a healthier lifestyle should not be bland or boring. I dine in great restaurants around the world, representing many different types of cuisines at various price points, and preparing healthy gourmet meals at home.” “Soon, readers nationwide and around the world can follow my lead and dine at my favorite restaurants, prepare my favorite dishes at home, and enjoy my “la dolce vita” gourmet living without the guilt,” Bollaci said.

In designating establishments “Golden Palate Partners,” Bollaci, who says he “was born with a golden palate and grew up appreciating excellent cuisine,” knew that in order to lose a substantial amount of weight and remain healthy, he had to find a way to please his ‘Golden Palate,’ while making better choices, and exercising. “Working with my favorite restaurants and some of the nation’s top chefs seemed natural to me, after trying numerous ‘typical diets’ which advocated bland cuisine, and shunned fine dining.” “These great establishments which cater to my “healthy, gourmet, ‘Golden Palate,’ if you will, are ‘partners’ in my success. These are places that wanted to see an overweight patron trying to lose weight and get healthy continue to enjoy their establishments for years to come. Increasingly, the trend towards healthier, cleaner, lighter cuisine– smaller portions and higher quality. The establishments named are part of this trend. While certainly not everything on every menu is healthy, these establishments feature enough quality, lighter options to keep even a ‘Golden Palate’ like me satisfied,” Bollaci said. I include hotels, spas, and even wineries, as my approach is a total lifestyle makeover, it doesn’t just revolve around food. Exercise, and a commitment to wellness are equally important.” Unlike most ‘diets,’ Bollaci, a sommelier, also enjoyed wine with dinner while losing a remarkable 150 pounds in one year, maintaining his new healthy lifestyle five years later. “It is an honor to have the support of so many great establishments, chefs, and owners,” Bollaci said.

The Golden Palate Partners listed are in addition to the Signature Golden Palate Partners named in 2014 being: SD26 (New York City), 75 Main (Southampton, NY), The Golden Pear Cafe (The Hamptons, NY), Homestead Inn/Thomas Henkelmann, a Relais & Chateaux Property (Greenwich, CT), La Bussola (Glen Cove, NY), La Ginestra (Glen Cove, NY), Noah’s (Greenport, NY), The Frisky Oyster (Greenport, NY), Wolffer Estate Winery (Sagaponack, NY), Wheatleigh, a Leading Hotels of the World, Five Diamond Property (Lenox, MA), and The Perfect Wife (Manchester, VT). Mr. Bollaci, with assistance from his esteemed Advisory Board will be vetting and awarding Golden Palate Partners in 2015 in the United States and abroad. “This is just the beginning,” Bollaci said. “We are going to completely recreate the model by which America and the world looks at healthy living.
