In a cutting edge cookbook for the Internet generation, Google s legendary founding super-chef, Charlie Ayers, tells you everything you need to know about the newest nutrition buzzword: brainfood. He outlines the basics on how the right foods can transform your mind and body, and then teaches you how to stock your kitchen with the healthiest foods available. Raw, organic, and fermented is Charlie s mantra, which is reflected in more than 90 easy-to-prepare recipes, whether it s a Kick-start Breakfast, a Power Lunch, or a Light, Bright Dinner. And, following the world-famous formula Charlie used at Google headquarters, the meals and snacks are designed to feed your brain exactly what it needs at different points throughout the workday.

Charlie Ayers first made a name for himself by catering for the Grateful Dead and other bands around San Francisco. In 1999, he was hired by Google to feed their employees (only 40 at the time) a lunch that would have them back at their computer screens in the afternoon, full of energy and creativity. The Google canteen, known as Charlie s Café, quickly became an institution. Charlie created restaurant-quality food to fuel the Googlers from the start of the workday to the end. By the time he left Google in 2005 he was feeding 1,500 people. His legacy was one of forward-thinking, Earth-friendly, alternative, and eclectic food. Charlie continues to feed the brains that drive Silicon Valley. In January 2009 Chef Charlie opened Calafia Cafe and Market A Go Go, in Palo Alto, California.From Publishers Weekly:
While working in California as the executive chef for Google, Ayers came to believe that we can all eat delicious, clean, fast cuisine that is good for us, good for the community, and good for the Earth. In his first cookbook, Ayers shares recipes that fed the young minds at Google for more than six years as well as tips on eating, shopping and cooking smart. Ayers isn't telling readers anything new, but his clear and concise recipes are inspiring. The Smart Pantry section includes lists of Ayers's favorite vinegars, oils and grains, and includes creative recipes for homemade condiments like Chutney-Yogurt Crust for fish, Roasted Jalapeno Ketchup, and Flavor Cubes, such as one made with carrot juice, eggplant and garlic puree frozen in ice trays and used to add quick flavor to soups or sauces. The Smart Recipes section offers such original recipes as a Jade Smoothie, made with cucumber, apple cider and lemon sorbet, and Dragon Breath Noodles, with peanut butter, ginger and honey. Photos.
