So, my mum is once again battling breast cancer. After 13 years in remission (yep, just about long enough to make you believe that it has gone for, actually, ever) the horrid, HORRID thing is back. And mum is having her second round of chemotherapy. Which means she’s got a fairly miserable few months ahead of her.
Consequently, anything I can do to brighten her days I am one hundred, million per cent in favour of. And my favourite discovery so far is the Chemo Cookery Club books.
I mean, one of books (entitled Around the Kitchen Table) even includes a recipe for gin and tonic ice creams! You don’t haaave to be having chemo to make these, obviously, and while many people suffering from cancer can’t have alcohol, there can be few better ways to perk up your spirits (and soothe a sore throat and mouth) than these in the middle of a course of chemo.
I think the Chemo Cookery Club books may well become my new go to recipe books…
