I'm Ian, Mr Cookfulness
I'm disabled, with chronic illnesses, and cooking really is my go to therapy!
I live with Fibromyalgia, Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), Arthritis, Prinzmetal Angina, Anxiety and Depression.
I am the creator and author of Cookfulness, the first ever cookbook designed specifically for people, like me, who suffer with a disability or illness, to help you not only get into the kitchen and cook, but WANT to cook, LOVE to cook and get the amazing therapeutic value cooking can provide!
Through my own battles trying to find ways to cook with chronic pain, fatigue, brain fog, cognitive impairment, limb weakness, anxiety and seizures, I've unpicked and unwound the traditional cookbook, taking away all of the barriers that stand in the way of cooking, replacing them with positive stepping stones, hints and tips to allow you not only to get in/back into the kitchen, but to absolutely love it and use it as part of your daily therapy!
