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.

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! *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. About the Author Cork native Valerie Twomey was diagnosed with end-stage kidney disease in 2004 and spent two years on dialysis before she was lucky enough to receive the gift of life in the form of a kidney transplant in 2006.

Since then Val has set out on a tireless campaign to promote organ donor awareness. Abroad, she has been invited to address the European Parliament to discuss the needs of patients with chronic kidney disease and at home, she is involved in an innovative project, called 'Patients as Teachers', run by the school of medicine at UCC.

Through this programme Val gives talks to medical students to give them an insight into kidney disease from the patient perspective. Val is also a member of the Irish Transplant Team with The Irish Kidney Association where she has represented Ireland, playing Tennis, at games worldwide.
