Family and friends enjoy the classic recipe such as chili, while the person with the swallowing disorder has the pureed version. The tastings have been unanimous. Family and friends love the recipes as much as the person with dysphagia or swallowing disorder.
The Purees of Winter: Slow Cooking in a Cold Season. Comfort foods that are easy to freeze, made in a slow cooker. Introduces the technique of hot pot or shabu-shabu for the winter holidays.
The Purees of Spring: Steamy Delights. The wrap, or the adaptation of the French technique of en papillote. Easy prep in the electric steamer, either one tier or multi-tiered.
