Allen Campbell is widely known as the “chef of peak performance” Through his culinary acumen, various publications, speaking engagements, consulting, and highly publicized work with athletes, actors, and entertainers, most notably his former clients Tom Brady and Gisele Bündchen, he has revolutionized traditional culinary artistry by maximizing health benefits and sustainable practices.
Allen’s culinary education began at the age of 14 in the Boston suburbs. After 20+ years in the hospitality industry, he earned his stripes, crafted his culinary style, and sought out a deeper meaning of the traditional “chef” position. Then, the lifestyle itself nearly ended his career. Instead of burning out, Allen woke up, made some radical changes, and began to morph into his calling, into the “chef of peak performance.”
Today, Allen is all about one thing – cooking with health as THE priority, period! His efforts locally and nationally, are part of much larger social efforts to bridge the gap between healthcare and the food industry.
While sustainable, healthy foods are gaining more and more traction among consumers, the challenge is to keep this momentum going so that more Americans will benefit.
Allen’s latest venture, AC Kitchen, is to continue the creation of delicious, healthful foods that do not sacrifice the integrity, flavor, or traditions of our cultures and cuisines.
Allen’s work can be found in The Game of Eating Smart, as well as the TB12 Method and TB12 Nutrition Manual. His home base is Boston.
