How the active chef works out, plus his must-have kitchen tools

When brothers team up, you can get your favorite home makeover show, one of the year’s biggest hit songs, and Project Foodie, an app that acts as a virtual cookbook by providing real time, step-by-step recipe videos. Created by chef Daniel Holzman, the man behind New York City’s The Meatball Shop, and his Emmy award-winning brother Eli, the app’s recipes are restaurant-quality, yet approachable for a beginner.

Chef Holzman says that for him, cooking is easier, more delicious, and healthier than eating out. “But it can be massively stressful for other people,” he notes. “Now we can share with the world the joy our family has in the kitchen.”

When he’s not wearing his apron and clogs, you can find him hiking, riding his old-school bike, or training in Jiu Jitsu. Here, he shares his favorite cooking necessities, active gear, and more.
