Truly Tasty

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. *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. 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!

About the Author

Valerie Twomey had a successful kidney transplant in 2006.


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. Sally Hughes, Books for Cooks 'Truly Tasty makes real the vital injunction that one must let food be your medicineA", 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'. John McKenna 'Truly Tasty is a beautiful cookbook, it's 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!' Catherine Fulvio, Ballyknocken House & Cookery School Truly Tasty 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. 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. Tom Doorley
