meet GRACE O

Grace O, creator of FOODTRIENTS and author of her new The AGE BEAUTIFULLY Cookbook and the Age Gracefully Cookbook has been cooking and baking professionally and recreationally all of her adult life.
As a child, in Southeast Asia, she learned the culinary arts by her mother’s side in her family’s cooking school. She became so well versed in hospitality and the culinary arts, she eventually took over the cooking school and opened three restaurants. She is widely credited with popularizing shrimp on sugarcane skewers and being one of the first culinarians to make tapas a global trend. She has cooked for ruling families and royalty.

Combining Culinary Traning with Healthcare

Grace O’s move to America precipitated a career in healthcare, inspired by her father, who was a physician. Twenty years and much hard work later, she operates skilled nursing facilities in California. Grace O strives to create flavorful food using the finest ingredients that ultimately lead to good health. Her recipes, although low in saturated fat, salt, and sugar, are high in flavor.

Grace employs spices from all over the world to enliven her dishes, creating food that is different and delicious. She believes that food can be just as effective at fighting aging as the most expensive skin creams. And since she’s over 50 herself, she’s living proof of that theory. Grace O lives in Pasadena, California.

Author and Visionary

Grace O’s blog, Age Gracefully, appears weekly on FoodTrients.com. She is also a contributor to Scrubs-Mag.com, the award-winning lifestyle nursing magazine and website, and is a bi-monthly columnist for the Asian Journal newspaper. She is the author of two cookbooks — The Age GRACEfully Cookbook and her latest, The Age Beautifully Cookbook – which are both available on Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
