The shaky chef

As I've mentioned in previous posts it's always been my dream to be a chef but my disability (spinocerebellar ataxiatype 11) has made it a bit harder for me to achieve it.
As well as writing a cookery book I have finally managed to make a video of me cooking and i'd love it if you lot were the first to see it Cheers!

    Hello saw this the other day.  Thank you for sharing.  I am trying to advise people all the time that cooking a simple meal is not only beneficial for mental health and wellbeing.  It makes you feel good I have cooked that.  There are so many tools and gadgets on the market that make cooking a lot easier.  I have a blender, food processor and slow cooker.  Plus other things like a mini chopper and a whisk attachment.  These might be worth having a look at if that helps.  I have disability have fingers missing.  Slicing chopping not very good but using a food processor with slicer attachments helps me.  Did you know there are a range of slow cookers that suit one person.  I use it for small meals like soup or small portions of ragu or stew.  Having also a folder of favourite simple meals written or out on the computer has helped me a lot with me having memory problems.  To make it easy number each ingredient and each process then you would forget anything.  Glad to help and advise chef have fun.
