Cooking For Chemo
A “How To Cook” Cookbook that teaches you how to adjust your cooking for chemotherapy patients.
While most cancer cookbooks are focused on teaching you about healthy ingredients and recipes to eat, Cooking For Chemo focuses on teaching you how to adjust flavor so you can enjoy your food again while undergoing chemotherapy treatments. The theory Chef Ryan Callahan teaches you can be applied to ANY diet or dietary regimen that your dietitian or physician puts you on. The applicability of this theory to any style of cooking or dietary requirements is what sets this book apart from all other books.
