Sara Ask is a writer and dietician with a long clinical history at Karolinska University Hospital in Stockholm. For her, the joy of food is one of the keys to a healthy life. She lectures frequently throughout Sweden, for the public, chefs, educators, healthcare workers, as well as making occasional TV appearances. The main message in all she does is promoting seeing food as a part of a greater whole, instead of fixating on individual ingredients. She has written a number of cookbooks and non-fiction works about food.
