<p>Tricia Williams is an accomplished executive chef, nutrition educator and chef instructor. The culinary nutritionist founded Food Matters NYC in 2008 so that she could share her passion for fresh, whole, locally grown, organic, sustainable and delicious food.&nbsp;Williams&rsquo; 15 years experience in the restaurant industry enabled her to leave her mark on highly regarded Manhattan restaurants including The City Bakery, Home <span>Restaurant, Isla and Olives, to name a few. Now, she coaches individuals and families to lead them to better food choices and ultimately healthier lifestyles.</span></p> <p>Williams&rsquo; passion for culinary nutrition surfaced after she gave birth to her first child.

She says, &ldquo;Food Matters NYC is helping individuals and families lead healthier lives through hands-on education and nutritional guidance. What we eat affects our physical, emotional and mental well being. We strongly believe in a person&rsquo;s bio-individuality and help clients understand the food choices that would best nourish their bodies.&rdquo;</p> <p>Tricia Williams&rsquo; work has been featured nationally and regionally in media outlets such as The New York Times, W, Glamour, Bride, New York Magazine, Gotham, The Daily News and The New York Observer.
