Norwegian chef Henrik Orre had been working with the National Culinary Team and with renowned chef Matthias Dahlgren, before he started cooking nutritious meals for the world-famous cycling team Team Sky. Inspired by this experience, Orre has blended his love of cycling with his passion for food, and ‘Vélochef’ is the perfect synthesis between the two. He gathered 80 nutritionally balanced recipes for cyclists and anyone who trains and competes. Some of the best cyclists in the world also contributed to it, such as Emma Johansson, Edvald Boasson Hagen and Richie Porte.
The cookbook features three sections, pre vélo, vélo and après velo, with vélo being French for bicycle. Whether athletes need some energy boost before, during or after their training, ‘Vélochef’ always offers the right recipes to fuel their ride, making sure they are tasty, easy to cook and optimal for performance and recovery. Each meal is accompanied by a comprehensive ingredients list and step-by-step instructions, and the book’s presentation is no less appetising than the food.
