Padma Lakhsmi for Women’s Health US September 2020

Padma Lakshmi covers the latest issue of Women’s Health, on-stands August 4th. Inside, the cookbook author, host and executive producer of Top Chef and Taste the Nation talks about how her view of ‘healthy’ has evolved and how she’s using her platforms as a megaphone to amplify the voices of other cultures.

On the casual style of her quarantine cooking videos, which have become an Instagram sensation: “I’m very fluid with my cooking. I’m not a formally trained chef. But because I’ve been judging people for over a dozen years on television, I was afraid people wouldn’t be down with me doing this kind of ad hoc cooking [in my videos]. I’ll say, ‘Normally we use red onions in this, but I’m using shallots because that’s all I have,’ and I think that’s useful information for viewers.”

On improvising in cooking: “The professional food world is dominated by men. But most of the actual cooking of food in the world is done by women. And we women have always had to make do with whatever we can. We’re a little bit like water—we find our way because we’ve had to.”

On eating upwards of 7,000 to 8,000 calories a day while judging ‘Top Chef’: “Those chefs are cooking to win, so they’re putting in as much lard and butter and salt as they can.” Images courtesy of Tyler Joe for Women’s Health. (source)
