Cook for Your Life is a one-of-a-kind cookbook for those whose lives are touched by cancer, organized by the patient's needs. Self-taught home cook and two-time cancer survivor Ann Ogden Gaffney discovered during her months of treatment for breast cancer that she was able to find powerful relief for her symptoms through cooking. Realizing that other patients and families could benefit from the skills and techniques she'd learned, she began to offer advice, recipes, and free classes to fellow patients. A former fashion consultant, Gaffney realized after her treatment that her heart was no longer in seasonal colors and hemline trends. Instead, she wanted to help people with cancer and their families cook and care for themselves. In 2007,the nonprofit organization Cook for Your Life was born. Its programs have received funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and have been embraced by organizations such as Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health, Mount Sinai Health System, Atlantic Health System Cancer Care, the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge in New York City, and more. Cook for Your Life has touched hundreds of thousands of lives. Now Gaffney delivers her very first highly anticipated cookbook, based on Cook for Your Life's classes. So many cancer cookbooks are too complicated to follow for someone going through the treatment, or too clinical and uninspired to encourage anyone with compromised taste buds to enjoy. This is the first cookbook to organize the recipes into categories according to the way patients feel and their needs in the moment - for example, 'Simple' recipes when the patient is fatigued, 'Safe' recipes when a patient's immune system is compromised, and 'Spicy' recipes when a patient is feeling better and needs to wake up her taste buds. With its warmth, authority, beautiful design, and smartly conceived format, Cook for Your Life empowers patients and families to cook their way back to health. 'Cook For Your Life was a safe haven of information and delicious recipes for me and my family following my diagnosis of leukemia at age 22. There are many things that lie outside of your control when you're diagnosed with cancer, but Cook For Your Life taught me how to take charge of my health in the kitchen.' Suleika Jaouad, New York Timescolumnist of 'Life Interrupted''Cook for Your Lifeand Ann Ogden's work inspire me. She teaches a greatly needed skill for patients and families affected by cancer - how to nourish and heal the body with food.' Dr. Drew Ramsey, author of Fifty Shades of Kale

Let's face it, who gets the opportunity these days to learn how to cook? The passed-down skills that once made up a family's kitchen lore are all but forgotten, schools no longer teach cooking and for the most, TV shows offer a vicarious experience of high-end chefs competing over tricky techniques. This inspiring new book, the first in a series of Annabel's Anyone Can Cook titles, is designed to provide people of all ages with the building blocks needed to become confident and successful cooks. Simple everyday ingredients and streamlined methods demystify the cooking process for those starting out in the kitchen. Annabel shares the skills that make the process fun, simple and 100 percent successful. Her mantra is building cooking confidence. Annabel's building-block approach to the recipes in this book means that a simple idea - whether a key ingredient or a flavour base - can be expanded into many recipes. For example, her teriyaki marinade makes not only teriyaki chicken and salmon kebabs but also chicken and vegetable noodle stir-fry, sticky spareribs, flavoursome sushi and Asian chicken salad. The recipes sound exotic and interesting and certainly they deliver this in taste, but the beginner cook will not be challenged in succeeding. An on-line companion delivers detailed information and videos and provides a unique interactive dimension. More than just a collection of easy and useful recipes, this brilliant book also provides the skills that allow anyone, no matter what their age or talents, to bring delicious food to the table.
