The Foodie Physician

The rare gem Sonali Ruder is both fantastic emergency physician and ultrasound guru as well as gourmet chef. And now she’s miraculously combined the two at her new blog, The Foodie Physician. Start reading. And eating. (In true physician form, there’s even references to back up her nutritional claims.)

Note: while I have not tried any of the recipes on the site, I can indeed vouch for her culinary aptitude, having had the pleasure of trying her absolutely amazing New York Steakhouse Burger. She was even featured on TV as a finalist. And totally should have won.

    Anyone who can put together a great tasting burger is ok in my books.

    Go Doc Ruder!

    Wow! What she is doing are not related but despite that, she is able to juggle both. Being a physician requires a lot of mental and physical energy, it would be good to take some time off and do the things that you love. Being a gourmet chef is a relief from all the stress that a physician is facing everyday. I can say that this would also be a big advantage for her because she will be able to give proper health teachings (about food) to her patients.

    Thanks for posting this!

    They are more related then you might think: precision, attention to detail, focus, professionalism. Good on her!

    I’ve got to try that burger recipe! I’ve never heard of frizzled onions, but the ingredients are mouth watering…

    From the looks of her recipes, I think she should have won, too! What an amazing, multi-talented woman. She must find cooking relaxing. Not all of us do :).

    Great post, I usually buy my hamburgers but I want to try to make my own.
