Chef James is cooking up something special as co-host of Telemundo’s Levántate.
Look at this picture of James Tahhan—better known as Chef James to fans of Telemundo’s morning show, Levántate. You might think he’s wearing a chef’s tunic, but he thinks he’s sporting a cloak and dagger.
“As a chef, I am a secret agent, because I have so many missions when it comes to my cooking.” His latest objective: help in the fight against obesity. “A lot of people think ‘food makes me fat,’ but food makes you lose weight.” It’s a matter of staying away from the wrong foods. “When dieting, you eat more salads but then, you buy salad dressing. It has a lot of chemicals, sugars and carbohydrates. They make you unhealthy!” Chef James suggests making your own vinaigrette. “It’s a simple ratio: two parts olive oil, one part vinegar (any type), one teaspoon Dijon mustard, salt and pepper.”
In his program, Levántate, James has one goal in mind, to make your taste buds sing without too much complication. “What I try and do every morning is to make the process of cooking quality superstar dishes easy.”
Monday – Friday at 7am/6c
