Could you cook dinner with one hand tied behind your back? Thirteen years after surviving a near-fatal stroke, Jacqui Hynd invites you to share her comeback, emphasising her love of travel, photography and especially cooking. Travels with a One-Handed Cook describes her stroke and the challenges of the first few years, whereby she could not talk, read, write, walk, or remember (short term memory gone), and was in a wheelchair for 3 years. The book also charts her move to the Spanish countryside with her husband to renovate a country property, and enjoy the challenge of living in a different land. This cookbook is a reason for living, as in to experience travel again, to cook new things! Being one-handed now, she's made cooking easy and versatile, a delight for home cooks everywhere. Her travels before and after the stroke, has its influences in the recipes: dishes from South East Asia, and the Mediterranean countries including Morocco, all prepared by a one-handed cook, from her unique perspective.
