Chef Rebecca Katz shares delicious, nourishing recipes with people who need food the most: cancer patients. Dietary restrictions, as well as damaged taste buds from cancer treatments, turn many patients off of food, but Katz, whose San Francisco-area practice creates culinary solutions for people with cancer, reinvigorates the appetite through immune-building, sumptuous meals. Recipes such as Magic Mineral Broth, Poached Coconut-Ginger Salmon, Spinach Orzo with Pine Nuts and Feta, and Fruit Parfait with Almond Peach Cream use ingredients that support and bolster the immune system, are easy to digest, and taste wonderful. Supporting chapters help loved ones understand the culinary ups and downs that patients experience, as Katz's clients share anecdotes of the joyous impact these recipes have had on their lives. At a time in your life when you may feel nothing is in your control, something as simple as creating a nutritious, delicious dish for yourself or a loved one can be a reaffirmation of your humanity or a tangible way to nurture someone you care about.
