After his TV chef days, Kerr turned his attention to a variety of different topics, including personal/spiritual happiness, healthy eating and growing your own food. His book, Growing at the Speed of Life, chronicles his adventure of starting a garden for the first time in his life. It is filled with hints about gardening, as well as interspersed with original recipes that promote his healthy eating interest.
