Atlantic City, NJ, June 18th, 2008 – Former international supermodel Maria Liberati knows a thing or two about staying fit. In her best selling book, The Basic Art of Italian Cooking, she stresses the importance of fresh, healthy ingredients and eating in moderation. Liberati will share her recipes and love for healthy, Italian foods at the Toast of the Coast festival at Atlantic City’s Bally’s Hotel and Casino, June 26-28.
According to this Italian model-turned-chef, a traditional, Italian diet is a great way to stay in shape. The recipes in her book are testaments to her belief that healthy foods can be delicious and still beneficial when portion sizes are noted and moderation is considered.
At Toast of the Coast, Liberati will be presenting summery recipes relating to a Tuscan-style picnic, including grilled pizza and appetizers on June 27th. She will have a book-signing booth open all three days of the festival. Toast of the Coast will feature food and wine tasting and chef demonstrations over the course of the three days. Other chefs that will also be making appearances include Food Network’s Giada De Laurentiis and Guy Fieri.
