Product Description

The perfect book for cyclists everywhere, Velochef is a beautiful package of nourishing, delicious recipes for those who love to get out on the open road and cycle - from the man who cooks for professional cyclists around the world. Velochef is a recipe book developed with cyclists in mind by Henrik Orre, chef for the Norwegian National Roadcycling Team and Team Sky Procycling. The book includes 80 recipes through 200 pages that are ideal fuel for before the race, recovering afterwards, and even during your adventure.

About the Author

Henrik Orre started his career as a chef, working in bespoke, Michelin-starred restaurants in Norway - he is the former Head Chef of the renowned Stockholm restaurants Mathias Dalgren and Matbaren. He went on to setup his own company, called Kocken Henrik (Henrik the chef), but an early assignment for the Norwegian Cycling Federation led him into the world of professional cycling and ultimately a gig with Team Sky in 2014. Henrik Orre now devotes his culinary expertise to both of his great passions in life: cooking and cycling.

      Comments about Velochef:

      I bought this for my bike riding son who competes in fundraising rides and rides regularly with friends and colleagues. He is into healthy eating etc and I thought this would be of interest.
      After reading through it I wouldn't mind a copy for myself, recipes are great, very appealing and edible for non health food people. The side notes are interesting, giving an insight into bike riders, races and bicycles.
      This is more than a cookbook for people in training for bike races.

          Sometimes tricky but interesting recipes, meandering "story line" but if you are interested in modern bicycle road racing and cycling in general, you will love it. Sky Pro Team racing insights/behind the scenes, and a love of titanium (which I share) are the themes! Useful recipes and ideas for sensible eating especially if in competition or aspiring to it.

          Some really good recipes and tips - I've only tried the alternates to commercial energy bars and love the Date Slice and the Rice and Phili cheese one. I doubt I will buy a commercial energy bar again. Keen to try some of the other recipes as well - so far its been great.

          Only downside is the cover etc doesnt allow the book to stay open so you can read and cook - but thats a real First World problem!

          Good book, nice recipes and useful. I have use it on multiple occasions. Would have benefited from nutrition information.

          Great for a cyclist who likes to cook.
