Cookbook Featuring Something for Everyone

PLAINSBORO, N.J. —The Pollan family — including Emmy-nominated actress Tracy, her sisters Dana and Lori, and their mother, Corky — will offer insight into eating for optimal health and lead a cooking demonstration during a special event Wednesday, June 5, at Princeton Medical Center.

Tracy Pollan became a household name in the 1980s with a recurring role on the popular sitcom Family Ties, portraying the girlfriend of Michael J. Fox’s character. (Pollan and Fox have been married since 1988.) Since then, she has played several roles in the theater, films and television.

Dana and Lori Pollan cofounded the Pollan-Austen Fitness Center in New York, where they developed and taught innovative exercise programs and co-created and appeared in a series of popular workout videos. Corky Pollan, author of Shopping Manhattan, edited New York magazine’s signature column, “Best Bets” and later became style director of Gourmet magazine, where she was involved in all aspects of the publication. She has also written for the New York Times and Coastal Living.

The family’s previous cookbook, The Pollan Family Table, won multiple awards, and their recipes have appeared in numerous magazines, including O, The Oprah Magazine; Elle; People; Vogue; Better Homes and Gardens; and Coastal Living.
