CHEF ALLEN CAMPBELL is widely known as a leader in the sports nutrition world. To him, food is medicine. Through his whole foods culinary acumen, various publications, speaking engagements, consulting, and highly publicized work with athletes, actors and entertainers, he has revolutionized traditional culinary artistry by maximizing health benefits and sustainable practices. His work can be found in The Game of Eating Smart, as well as the TB12 Method and the TB12 Nutriton Manual.

"Modern-day chefs have the power to make a positive difference in society by making choices that help sustain the environment and the health of future generations."

Boston-based Campbell, widely known as the "Chef of Peak Performance", for many years served as the personal chef to NFL star TOM BRADY. During that time he developed the TB12 nutrition regimen which is often credited as being integral to Brady's longevity on the football field. The Coudert Institute is delighted to welcome Allen to our 2021 season as he presents THE GAME of EATING SMART on Thursday, January 14 at The Ben Hotel in West Palm Beach. Tickets are available for this rare local appearance HERE.

"Our bodies have not evolved to digest the processed foods we are feeding it," suggests Campbell. "Maybe it will someday, but as of now our bodies are functioning the same way they did when we were hunting and gathering". THE GAME of EATING SMART will offer the public a rare opportunity to learn more about Campbell's dynamic philosophy of eating and cooking (primarily plant-based) while sampling his signature dishes through a three course luncheon. During his appearance, Chef Allen will share his nutrient density culinary approach to living well and offer simple dietary shifts which support a healthy body, mind and spirit. These GREEN LEAN PROTEIN WRAPS featuring "lentil meat" are a perfect example!

“There are probably more spies in America now than at any other point in our history,” said longtime historical adviser to the C.I.A. H. Keith Melton in a 2019 New York Times conversation with Brett Sokol. Melton, who has devoted the last few decades of his life to international espionage research, will share his knowledge on the topic of Russian interference on January 7 in his Coudert Institute presentation titled Russian Spies, Lies and Elections. This lunchtime program is available for both (socially distanced) in-person and remote participation. Tickets may be purchased by clicking HERE. Keith Melton is a highly regarded author, an intelligence historian and a specialist in clandestine technology and espionage tradecraft. He is also one of the leading authorities on equipment and arms for clandestine warfare. Through the years, engaged in his research, Melton amassed a tremendous collection of spyware including include a Nazi Enigma code machine abandoned in France by a German unit fleeing advancing American soldiers, one of whom took it home after the war; a 13-foot-long British “Sleeping Beauty” submarine that allowed a single sailor to slip undetected into an enemy harbor; and a British-built World War II-era cigarette that fires a .22-caliber bullet. Last year, the New York Times featured Melton's collection in their popular Show Us Your Wall Series. A graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy, Mr. Melton has shared both his expertise, and some of his prized collection (i.e. Soviet-era hidden cameras and eavesdropping devices), while serving as a technical adviser for the recent 1980s-set TV drama The Americans. Recently, he donated more than 7,000 items form his collection to the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C. where he serves as a founding member on their Board of Directors. The Institute is delighted to welcome Keith to our 2021 season as he shares his passion for espionage and details how Russian efforts in the United States have continued (and expanded) since 2010 to actively interfere with U.S. elections. We hope that you will join us for this timely lunchtime conversation, either in person (following CDC guidelines) at The Sailfish Club, or remotely via ZOOM.

Last month found us kicking off a brand new Coudert Institute season. A great big THANK YOU to our fabulous panel of presenters which included Margaret Carlson, Steve Clemons, Eleanor Clift and Alvin Felzenberg. So wonderful to welcome back the many of you who participated - both in person and remotely. With health and safety as our barometer, we are delighted to move forward with our 2021 season which features limited capacity (30 person) events at over-sized select venues that share our commitment to caution during this time. The compact nature of the Institute enables us to continue to bring thought provoking programming to the community, and we hope that you will join us for our next event on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 18 when we will (at a safe social distance) gather with KIRSTEN FONTENROSE at The Sailfish Club of Florida to explore the United States and Middle East relations under a new administration. How will we manage Iran? How will we deal with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia?  How will we follow on Israel-UAE normalization? How will we compete with Russia and China in the Middle East? What is the future of our presence in Iraq? What will we do about Lebanon? About Libya? These timely inquiries are among the countless decisions which lie ahead for a new administration. In her luncheon presentation Ms. Fontenrose will offer her unique insights and share her wisdom while exploring their scope.

KIRSTEN FONTENROSE serves as the Director for the Scowcroft Middle East Security Initiative, Atlantic Council. She joined the Atlantic Council in 2019 after spending twenty years working national security in the Middle East and Africa from positions within the US Department of State, Department of Defense, the White House, private industry, and the non-profit sector. Most recently she served as senior director for Gulf Affairs at the National Security Council.  We join the world in closely monitoring the promise of multiple vaccines on our horizon. As we do so we continue to make everyone's health and safety our ultimate priority. This caution has led us to postpone our scheduled December and February musical programs until a time when performers, once again, feel comfortable with air travel. We believe that music is best experienced live and in person, and we will resume our Concerts in the Garden series in that fashion at a future date.

Please be assured that ALL of our 2021 Lecture Series experiences and our other educational programming will be available for seamless remote participation. Should your preference be such that you wish to partake in the extraordinary conversations our season will offer, we welcome your continued connection and engagement!
