A new, innovative cookbook aimed at patients experiencing cancer-related weight loss has been developed by CIT’s Tourism & Hospitality Department and the Nutritional Science Department in UCC in collaboration with Breakthrough Cancer Research.  

This Good Nutrition for Cancer Recovery cookbook was created by dieticians and includes information, advice and a bank of nutritious, anti-cancer recipes to combat weight loss.  

The cookery demonstration will feature some of the highly nutritious recipes to combat weight loss which are included in the cookbook.

The demonstration will be given by two of CIT’s Culinary lecturers Ann O’Connor and Jane Healy.

The cookbook will be available to patients free of charge from November in oncology centres across Ireland and from www.breakthroughcancerresearch.ie on payment of the postage fee.
 
Dr Margaret Linehan, Head of School of Humanities said "we are delighted to be working with UCC and Breakthrough Cancer Research on this project. The recipes in the book are easy to follow, and have been tested here in our Tourism and Hospitality Department by lecturers Ann O’Connor and Jane Healy. The cookery demonstration will be the official launch of the book. Tasting of the food cooked on the evening will be available, and everyone will receive a copy of the book to take home."
