We have selected 20 of the leading chefs from across Canada to relate their stories about the importance of nutrition in their lives and their work. The cookbook will be on retail shelves such as Chapters and Indigo and online retailers such as Amazon by late 2016. Proceeds will be used to fund InspireHealth’s initiative of providing top level supportive cancer care for Canadians.
