Bill plate-LRSince they got married in 1961, Bill Wurtzel has made healthy, artistic, and hilarious breakfasts for his wife Claire just an expression of his love for her.

Bill makes any food look visually appealing. With his skills as an artist and jazz musician, he improvises the food designs spontaneously with whatever ingredients are on hand.

Claire is a“Weight Watcher” and Bill is very supportive. He measures the ingredients of whatever crazy dish he’s preparing so Claire can calculate the points.

Their book, “Funny Food” – 365 Fun, Healthy, Silly, Creative Breakfasts, is widely acclaimed. Claire and Bill  conduct Funny Food workshops in schools that make it fun for kids to learn about nutrition. Learn more at
