Domini is the co-author with nutritional therapist Patircia Daly of The Ketogenic Kitchen the first comprehensive ketogenic cookbook based on exciting new research on nutritional approaches to the prevention and management of cancer. This is a must-have cookbook for people with cancer or who want to prevent cancer, written by a practicing research nutritionist and a progressive chef who both use low-carohydrate diets to support their own recovery from cancer. It's beautiful book, full of nutritional information, inspiration and delicious recipes!

Domini is an award winning chef, food writer, and entrepreneur. In 2013, she was diagnosed with breast cancer and since then she has shifted her focus towards healthier eating. She changed her column in the Irish Times to focus on healthier recipes and opened Alchemy Juice Co., a juice and wholefoods cafe. The Ketogenic Kitchen is her fifth cookbook and is focused on nutrition and well-being through tastey and easy to prepare whole food recipes.

For decades, the ketogenic diet—which shifts the body’s metabolism from burning glucose to burning fat, lowering blood sugar and insulin and resulting in a metabolic state known as ketosis—has been used to successfully manage pediatric epilepsy. More recently, it has been used by the Paleo community as a performance and weight loss strategy and to promote metabolic health by reducing insulin resistance. Now emerging research suggests that a ketogenic diet, in conjunction with conventional treatments, also offers new hope for those coping with cancer and other serious disease.

The Ketogenic Kitchen is the cookbook that Domini and Patricia wished had existed when they first started managing their cancer recovery with a low carb high fat diet. The book gives advice we can trust because both of the author's are cancer survivors and attribute their survival to the concepts and recipes included in The Ketogenic Kitchen

Andrew Fisher

Andrew Fisher has worked in the anti-hunger field for twenty-five years, as the executive director of national and local food groups, and as a researcher, organizer, policy advocate, and coalition builder. He has led successful efforts to gain passage of multiple pieces of federal food and nutrition legislation. Chronic hunger and food insecurity trends across the U.S. have not changed, despite the rise of charity. Food banks and food pantries were meant to be a stopgap measure, but manufacturing jobs never came back, recession followed, and the “emergency food system” became an industry. In 1994, Andy Fisher co-founded and led the Community Food Security Coalition (CFSC), a first of its kind national alliance of hundreds of groups working on urban food access and local food. Fisher led CFSC as Executive Director for 15 years, creating and gaining momentum for the concept of community food security while building the food movement as a whole. He successfully led advocacy efforts and passage of crucial federal nutrition legislation to address food security, including the establishment of the Community Food Projects and Farm to School grants. Fisher is an expert on a variety of food system topics and tactics, including food policy councils, community food assessments, healthy corner stores, coalition building, and farm to cafeteria programs. Fisher is an activist, NGO consultant, and an adjunct teacher at Portland University in Oregon. His book, Big Hunger, is the launch for a new vision for how to untangle corporate interests from food banks and the anti-hunger movement. The 2016 election reminded us of the depth of economic insecurity across America, and of the political implications that come from ignoring this populist angst. The decline of Rust Belt communities since the 1980s has been paralleled by the rapid growth of food banks. Instead of challenging the government and corporations to provide living wages and good jobs, to support unions and oppose globalization, the anti-hunger movement has instead built alliances with Walmart, Tyson, and Monsanto, among other socially irresponsible companies. Big Hunger reveals the damage caused by this hunger-industrial complex, and offers a new vision for the anti-hunger movement to eliminate hunger through a focus on health, economic justice and local economies.
