A delightful guide full of important information for neurodivergent foodies - we've needed this for years!

We will be delving more into this in the next chapter, by way of "lifting the lid" on all things sensory. The Autism-Friendly Cookbook was created for autistic adults and teens to turn to when cooking for friends, lacking inspiration, or on those low-energy days.

Seems like it might be interesting but I’m worried it might end up gimmicky, looking for input/experience whether it’s worth the purchase.Triple-tested for clarity and favour by students and coaches in the cooking school we’ve run since 2002 for teens and adults on the autism spectrum, these recipes are clear and easy to follow.

So pleased to see the detailed explanations of things that have always tripped me up when trying to cook or bake. I have seen students in the cooking school—like my son—grow in confidence and self-esteem with each successful meal they prepare. By the proxy of the gender that I present as, it’s almost like having to go across some kind of invisible barrier on the pathway to diagnosis.

Our cookbook is not just a collection of recipes; it's a transformative guide to a happier, healthier, and more harmonious dining experience. Pre-preparation: Take the butter out of your fridge and allow to come to room temperature; this will make it easier to work with in the long run. To be able to speak semi fluently - never mind my flat tone, scripting, odd speaking pattern, and other issues - must ostensibly mean I am ‘able’. Say goodbye to mealtime pain and agitation, and embrace the joy of preparing and sharing delicious, health-conscious meals with your loved ones. More than a cookbook, Lydia has produced a book that is an excellent educational tool, a model for accessible and inclusive cookbooks, and an important piece of advocacy for the autistic community.At the time of writing, there is no data to officially provide context, but it is blindingly obvious from anecdotes, interviews, or just friendly conversations with autistic people. My oldest friend, Lalaine, is in the book; having caused friendly embarrassment while I was her work experience intern (we’ve been friends in the years since), a declaration was made to get my own back!
