Description
 

Miriam Polunin Award for Work on Healthy Eating from the UK guild of Food Writers 2011

Truly Tasty is a unique cookery book in that all the recipes have been created by Ireland's top chefs for adults living with kidney disease in Ireland. The book is the brainchild of Valerie Twomey, herself a kidney transplant recipient, who has spent over a year compiling it. Every recipe has been expertly analysed by dietitians from the Irish Nutrition & Dietetic Institute, ensuring that each one can be easily incorporated into the renal diet.

The book contains stunning food photography by Hugh McElveen and tempting recipes such as Melon and raspberries with cinnamon jelly and basil from Ross Lewis, Chargrilled fillet of beef with ratatouille from Derry Clarke, Tarragon plaice en papillote with julienne vegetables and chive mash from Clodagh McKenna and Pavlova with passion fruit and kiwi from Rachel Allen. There are over 100 recipes in the book from 30 top chefs who have also been interviewed in the book by journalist Brian Moore.

Truly Tasty is perfect for entertaining or for planning that special family meal for adults living with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those on dialysis, who can now sit down with their family and friends and savour a Truly Tasty meal that is suitable for all to enjoy!

*It is important for readers to note that the coding system used in the book is based on the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute renal diet sheet and the Irish method of educating adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those on dialysis.

About the Author
Cork native Valerie Twomey was diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease in 2004 and spent two years on dialysis before she was lucky enough to receive the gift of life in the form of a kidney transplant in 2006. Since then Val has set out on a tireless campaign to promote organ donor awareness. Abroad, she has been invited to address the European Parliament to discuss the needs of patients with chronic kidney disease and at home, she is involved in an innovative project, called 'Patients as Teachers', run by the school of medicine at UCC. Through this programme Val gives talks to medical students to give them an insight into kidney disease from the patient perspective. Val is also a member of the Irish Transplant Team with The Irish Kidney Association where she has represented Ireland, playing Tennis, at games worldwide. This August Val will be busy as Ireland plays host to the European Transplant & Dialysis Games, in Dublin.

Valerie Twomey a kidney transplant recipient has January 7, 2016
Reviewer: Donal O Donoghue UK Renal Tsar from Republic of Ireland  
Valerie Twomey  a kidney transplant recipient has spent the last year or more bringing together chefs from across Ireland to create over 100 special recipes for adults living with kidney disease. Valerie is passionate about people with kidney disease being able to live their lives to the full. We met a few years ago when we were both speaking in the European Parliament and at that time Valerie mentioned this project to me. I am delighted to see it come to fuitition.    For your next celebratory dinner how about an elegant courgette carpaccio with rocket   parmesan  the creation of chef and cookery teacher Rory O Connell  followed by mouth watering poached salmon pancakes with chive cream cheese from the kitchen of Kevin Dundon at Dunbrody House ; and  to finish  either a pear and apple crumble or for the truly traditional bread and butter pudding a la Domini Kemp who with her sister runs Itsabagel.    Eating well and enjoying eating is one of life s great pleasures but is not quite such an easy task for those with long term kidney problems where diet is an important aspect of care. Knowing  what is in that dish  is not something that comes easily. Preparation of a meal suitable for adults with kidney disease is one step; preparation of a kidney friendly meal that s also delicious may be a considerably harder step to master. Valerie Twomey has assembled some mouth watering recipes from Ireland s top chefs  each recipe has been expertly analysed by renal dietitians to ensure that they can be easily incorporated into a renal diet. Of course one size does not fit all and it s important to fit these recipes into the overall diet and before using the book kidney patients are advised to discuss recipes with their dietitian. The chefs in this book have proven that you can enjoy great food whilst on a renal diet.

Truly Tasty makes real the vital injunction that April 20, 2010
Reviewer: John McKenna Bridgestone Guides from Republic of Ireland  
Truly Tasty makes real the vital injunction that one must   let food be your medicine   and does so in a manner that  unites the practical needs of kidney patients with the culinary  aesthetic of a battalion of Ireland s leading chefs. It is a book  to inspire not just a sense of good eating  but a sense of true  well being. Brian Moore s interviews with the chef contributors  reveal not just their passion for wonderful food but also their  passion to reveal the centrality of good food in a life well lived.

Truly Tasty is a beautiful cookbook. It is a tale April 20, 2010
Reviewer: Catherine Fulvio Ballyknocken House Cookery Sch from Republic of Ireland  
Truly Tasty is a beautiful cookbook. It is a tale of passion from  top Irish chefs: it s a real cookbook for real cooks and it s so  much more than a ray of culinary hope for those accustomed to  the restricted renal diet. But most importantly  it s a powerful  reminder to us all of the importance of carrying an organ  donor card

This is a remarkable book. Remarkable not just in April 7, 2010
Reviewer: Tom Doorley from Republic of Ireland  
This is a remarkable book. Remarkable not just in its concept but in the way that it contains the thoughts and hard work of so many of our best chefs. And also in the way that it  underlines how dietary restrictions can amount to an exciting challenge rather than a negative hurdle. The people whose recipes appear here have one thing in common. They see good food as something to be celebrated  as an integral part of living life to the full. I am hugely impressed  as I am sure you will be too  by the way in which they have responded to the dietary challenges that face people for whom kidney disease is part of daily life. This is a book that will bring joy into the lives of people who may have felt deprived  of some familiar comforts in the kitchen   because it underlines how much pleasure there can be in a diet low in salt  phosphates and potassium. It s also a beautiful book and not just because of the delicious images it contains. The  beauty lies also in the generosity of the people who have put so much time and thought into its production.  Truly Tasty is truly a remarkable achievement.

From the Bookseller 12 February 2010 The last t February 18, 2010
Reviewer: Sally Hughes Books for Cooks from Republic of Ireland  
From the Bookseller 12 February 2010    The last thing the sick need is a collection of drab underseasoned dishes presented in a dull pictureless paperback. This book then is a novelty for this category in that it is a real cookbook. Twomey has approached leading Irish chefs and challenged them to provide recipes which are suitable for those suffering from chronic kidney disease. The result is a production profiling the chef and presenting attractive  enticing pictures of recipes which anyone would be happy to eat.
