Dr. Peter J. D’Adamo, New Canaan based naturopathic doctor and best-selling author of Eat Right for Your Type, a diet book that recommends foods based on your blood type teamed up with Ridgefield native, chef Kristin O’Connor to create a series of cookbooks based on his weight loss program. The collaboration has resulted in four soft-cover cookbooks, Eat Right for Your Type Personalized Cookbook (Type O, Type A, Type B, and Type AB). The books are published by Penguin Group, who also published D’Adamo’s previous work.
The books will be unveiled at a pre-launch celebration at the New Canaan Outback Teen Center on Thursday, September 26. The event, from 7pm to 9pm, will include a cocktail reception, a sampling of selected recipes from the books, a brief lecture from Dr. D’Adamo & O’Connor, and a book signing. The launch party will be co-hosted by D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition, his Wilton-based nutritional supplement company, and two New Canaan businesses, Pryority Wellness Center and Elm Street books. For more information on the event, please contact D’Adamo Personalized Nutrition (203)761-0042.
D’Adamo, a New Canaan resident for more than 15 years, explains that his goal in creating the cookbooks was to simplify eating and living according to blood type. Each book includes more than 150 easy to prepare recipes, menu planning strategies, and pantry-stocking tips.
Says author Kristin O’Connor, “To combine my philosophies on health with my love of cooking by writing this series of cookbooks is sincerely a dream come true. I came to see Dr. D’Adamo as a patient and I have never been healthier; but more than that, I have been able to see first-hand how dramatically he changes the lives of so many patients who walk through his door, read his books or follow his web forums. My intent with this cookbook and series is to make life a little easier (and certainly tastier) once you have started eating right for your blood type.”
