Why "Cooking for David" was written:
Writing the cookbook was an adventure in putting into practice day to day preparation of meals, based on the dietary requirements, for those on kidney dialysis. David Gordon is one of many people faced with the difficult life changes that dialysis requires. He has been on hemodialysis since 1997. The treatment entails sitting in a recliner for 4 hours 3 times a week while his blood is filtered through a dialysis machine. This is uncomfortable as well as boring and leaves David feeling tired after the treatment.
The required diet restrictions are another equally irksome aspect of kidney failure. As a talented cook, Dorothy’s heart went out to David every time she prepared and shared unseasoned bland meals from the restricted renal diet. She began to work in more satisfying variations of the recipes she had been using. Her objective was to create recipes tasty enough to replace the foods her husband loves and can no longer eat. These same recipes are now included in social eating events with family and friends. With medical nutritional guidance from renal dietitian Sara Colman, "Cooking for David: A Culinary Dialysis Cookbook" was created. Our hope is to help others dealing with the complexities and challenges of following a renal diet.
