The Cycling Chef: Recipes for Performance and Pleasure -- Product description Review I can't think of a finer chef to have written a book on nutrition and diet for athletes... His drive and commitment to culinary precision is matched only by his passion and expertise. - Tom Kerridge Alan's dedication to competing at the highest level of sport combined with the creativity and skill of his cooking, make his approach to nutritional cooking nothing short of incredible. - Ashley Palmer-Watts - Executive Chef at Dinner by Heston Blumenthal Alan's food is simple, yet tasty and powerful. He's been a key component for my training and racing. - --Alex Dowsett, World Tour rider, former World Hour Record holder and national champion I suspect journalists would put Alan into the category of 'marginal gains' that British Cycling is so famous for, but proper nutrition is a huge gain. - Katie Archibald, multiple world and Olympic gold medallist Alan Murchison has been pivotal in my transformation from knocking around for Top 10s at national level events to winning World Cups... A game changer. - Dan Bigham, GB track cyclist and multiple national champion As an athlete your priorities are; nutritional value, ease of cooking and taste. It takes real creativity, passion and a true understanding of the athletes needs to combine all these priorities, you don't have to compromise when you follow Alan's recipes. - Callum Skinner, Olympic gold medallist Working with Alan has completely changed the way I think about food and opened my eyes to new ideas. Ingredients I would have previously discarded as boring now feature regularly in a balanced diet. Eating well no longer feels like a challenge or a sacrifice. - --Hayley Simmonds, road cyclist and Commonwealth Games medallist Alan's unique dual background as a world-class chef as well as a high-performance athlete, means he has an extraordinarily useful empathy to understand and relate to the specific nutritional needs of the sports performer... I would not hesitate to recommend this book to any athlete and of any ambition. - Dr Jamie Pringle, leading sports scientist Al genuinely wants to change the way athletes prepare the very food that fuels their performance, and this book is a massive leap in that direction.
