The Woman Behind the Chef
Missy Chase Lapine is best known as the creator of the wildly successful Sneaky Chef series of books, including her first, a New York Times bestseller, The Sneaky Chef: Simple Strategies for Hiding Healthy Foods in Kids’ Favorite Meals (Running Press, April 2007). Missy’s second book, The Sneaky Chef: How to Cheat on Your Man in the Kitchen, was published in April 2008, helping to lower cholesterol levels across the nation. Her third book in the series, The Sneaky Chef to the Rescue(April 2009), was inspired by her passionate readers and their special requests. Missy’s latest innovation, Sneaky Fitness, (co-authored with fitness expert Larysa DiDio) cleverly instills the love of movement and fitness in kids. It hit the shelves in January 2010, and has topped children’s fitness lists. The Sneaky Chef and Sneaky Fitness books have inspired not only families around the country, but have established a whole new healthy eating and lifestyle brand category.
