New hardcover book, 256 pages. Published 2015. With contributions from top chefs and food writers including Stephanie Alexander, Nigella Lawson, Rick Stein, Jack Munroe and many others.

Nutritious recipes for during and after cancer treatment, to share with friends and family

One in three people will be diagnosed with cancer. Such news is life changing, and brings with it many psychological, emotional and physical challenges, including changes in body weight, appetite and the ability to taste and swallow, as well as alterations in the way your digestive system works. The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook explores the foods that will support and and nourish you during this time and offers more than 150 delicious, healthy recipes divided into 'During Treatment (dishes with more energy and in a form that is easier to eat) and 'After Treatment' (healthy options that encourage a balanced diet). There are also masses of inspirational ideas, variations and tips.

All the recipes have been reviewed and analysed by Dr Clare Shaw PhD, RD, Consultant Dietitian at The London-based Royal Marsden Hospital, a world-leading cancer centre specialising in diagnosis, treatment, care, education and research. They are designed for all the family - as well as for friends - to shace, so you don't have to cook individual meals, this easing stress and saving time and money.

Positive, healthy eating is acknowledged to be invaluable in helping people to remain physically and mentally strong. The Royal Marsden Cancer Cookbook aims to make cooking easy and enjoyable, as well as providing helpful advice and support

The book is divided into three: a detailed section by Clare Shaw about diet and cancer and the problems you may face during treatment (like loss of appetite,nausea, sore mouth, change of taste); recipes to cook during treatment, which are nutritionally beneficial and wholesome enough to keep you strong even if you can’t eat too much; and a section of recipes for after treatment aimed at keeping you healthy. These recipes are designed to serve smaller portions and two people as well as for families, and there are lots of tips about budgeting, leftovers and freezing. The book wants to emphasise that you don’t have to cook ‘special’, separate meals for one, the rest of the family can eat in the same way, saving on time and stress as well as encouraging a healthier diet for all
