Callahan Publishing

'Cooking for Chemo ...and After!' is a how-to-cook cookbook that teaches you how to adjust your cooking for someone going through chemotherapy. This cookbook focuses on teaching you how to adjust the flavor of your favorite foods so you can enjoy eating again. It is filled with 90 pages of culinary theory and over 100 pages of recipes that will teach you how to apply what you have learned. It was written by Chef Ryan Callahan based on his first-hand experience acting as primary caregiver for his mother, while she went through chemotherapy. Anybody who has ever been through chemotherapy, acted as a caregiver, or knows someone who has been through chemo will admit that combating and living with the metallic tastes in your mouth is one of the hardest parts. This book specifically addresses this problem and gives you easy, real-life solutions. These solutions can be employed in conjunction with any diet regimen or dietary restriction. 'Cooking for Chemo …and After!' is not a "new fad-diet" cookbook or a “what to eat, what not to eat” nutritional guide. It is a book that teaches you how to think and cook like a chef. It is a book that teaches you how to adjust flavor. It will change the way you cook and see food. (Publisher)
