Under the Toque: Becker draws on his culinary career to give back

As a child, Franklin Becker cooked a lot with his mother, essentially serving as her hands after a stroke left her partially paralyzed.

Becker, who was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes at age 27, also is the author of “The Diabetic Chef,” which was published in 2005.
