Valerie Bertinelli
Beloved actress Valerie Bertinelli, spokeswoman for Jenny Craig best known for her role in One Day at a Time, presents her new book, One Dish at a Time: Delicious Recipes and Stories from My Italian-American Childhood and Beyond.

As a member of a large, food-loving Italian family, Bertinelli has always equated food with good times and togetherness. But at one point her love of food threatened not only her health, but her livelihood as an actress, when personal demons drove her to overeat and make poor food choices that caused her weight to balloon by 50 pounds. Now happily svelte, remarried, and riding a new career high, Valerie has made peace with food, giving it a central—yet considered—place in her home and family celebrations. One Dish at a Time offers an intimate look into the actress's kitchen, where she prepares a collection of treasured recipes from her Italian heritage. Along the way, she shares her insights into the portion control and mindful indulgence she has come to practice on her journey to enjoying the pleasures of the table again.
