Truly Tasty is a unique cookery book in that all the recipes have been created by Ireland's top chefs for adults living with kidney disease in Ireland.

The book is the brainchild of Valerie Twomey, herself a kidney transplant recipient, who has spent over a year compiling it. Every recipe has been expertly analysed by dietitians from the Irish Nutrition & Dietetic Institute, ensuring that each one can be easily incorporated into the renal diet.


There has never been a book like it before. And the result is mouth-watering with stunning food photography by Hugh McElveen and tempting recipes such as Melon and raspberries with cinnamon jelly and basil from Ross Lewis, Chargrilled fillet of beef with ratatouille from Derry Clarke, Tarragon plaice en papillote with julienne vegetables and chive mash from Clodagh McKenna and Pavlova with passion fruit and kiwi from Rachel Allen. There are over 100 recipes in the book from 30 top chefs who have also been interviewed in the book by journalist Brian Moore.


*It is important for readers to note that the coding system used in the book is based on the Irish Nutrition and Dietetic Institute renal diet sheet and the Irish method of educating adults with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and those on dialysis.
