It’s safe to say that Seamus Mullen knows a thing or two about good food.
After spending years in Spain mastering his craft, he brought the highly acclaimed Manhattan restaurant, Tertulia, into our lives, and showed us his competitive cooking chops on The Next Iron Chef.
What Mullen’s less known for is his battle with rheumatoid arthritis, which comes out in his farm-to-table cookbook, Hero Food: How Cooking with Delicious Things Can Make Us Feel Better.
So he’s not afraid to put his culinary chops to work for his wellness, and blend up a juice. Ginger and apples? Like pretty much everything this amazing chef makes, we can’t wait to try it out. —Amy Eley
