  1. Matt P

    This is a fascinating book reflecting a very personal journey. Living with type one diabetes while being a professional chef can’t be easy. In fact, it’s hard to imagine. However, David overcame obstacles to enjoy a very successful career and this book gives real insight into that journey. It’s also packed with information and recipes. Hopefully it also helps and inspires others in a similar situation. As David says himself, he’s living proof that anything is possible.

    Its already hard to cook, although he is limited for ingredient, David shows us how diabetic people can cook delicious food. Instead of wasting money on cooking experiments, buy the book and save your time and money…

    What an amazing journey David had coping with diabetes while following his career as a chef and still managing to keep up with his rigorous fitness regime walking, cycling and more. A fascinating biography and such appetising recipes for keen cooks to try at home. So enjoyed reading this book. Great value.
