This is a book that is not only easy to read and understand, but is also jam packed with fabulous recipes containing all the ingredients and nutrients to combat these problems. A wonderful book and a wonderful read..." Professor Ian Brighthope, M.D. Melbourne, Australia About the Author Alison attributes much of her success as a chef to the vigorous training she received at the world-famous culinary school, Westminster Hotel School in London, which boasts other celebrity ex-students such as Jamie Oliver. She landed her first Head Chef position at the age of 21 in London at JP Morgan Investments. Her culinary career exploded from there with offers from all over the world including the playgrounds of the rich and famous in the USA, France and Australia. This has resulted in her cooking for film and pop stars, sporting greats, Heads of State, and royalty including Queen Elizabeth. She came to Australia in 1988, and was appointed as Chef for the VIP Lounge of the Australian Pavilion at World Expo 88, where she incidentally met and fell in love with her husband, Steve. Alison and Steve ran a successful gourmet catering business in Brisbane for five years. She was then drawn into the world of teaching the budding chefs of the future. In 2004, Alison was the first ever chef to win a prestigious Churchill Fellowship and, in 2006, Alison claimed a further award: Outstanding Educator for Culinary Arts. In 2008, she released her first cookbook, Fun, Fast and Fabulous Food - a roaring success. In 2010 she released her second cookbook, Leftovers Magic, which was also a tremendous success and reached the 'best sellers' list at Borders just before Christmas that year. She now runs her own School of Culinary Excellence and continues to enjoy her life teaching others. In this, her third book, Alison takes you on the powerful journey of her beloved sister Laura's fight to beat secondary breast cancer. She shares with you her vast knowledge of food and nutrition and information on healthy diets she believes can literally reverse illness. Through Laura's story Alison shows you how, from a complete change of diet, 'eating for your life' has seen Laura recover and become healthy. Alison is devoted to her family and you will note that this book has been written in honour of them.
