 As a Culinary Consultant...

 

So many recipes available to the CKD community are not coming from a culinary perspective. This results in bland, boring meals that give no pleasure in eating.

 

Most lack texture, depth, balance, and harmony. Many deliver small portion sizes, and nearly all of them have incorrect or incomplete cooking instructions.

 

Utilizing Linda's culinary expertise, you will receive a full evaluation of a recipe.

She includes updates, changes, substitutions, product suggestions, allergen alerts, revised ingredient lists, step-by-step instructions for the most culinary challenged to follow, photographs of the prepared dish, and more.

 

She gains inspiration from many sources to create new recipes as well. Always allowing for easy adaptations for personal and dietary preferences. In addition, recipes include suggestions for complimentary foods such as fruits, vegetables, or proteins to accompany the dish.

 

She works with many organizations, providing cooking demonstrations and informational webinars.

 

If you are interested in her services, please contact her by email.

 

 

Many of her recipes are posted on American Kidney Fund's Kidney Kitchen® website.
